Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Are your plants being attacked by hidden bugs? Vine weevils are common pests in greenhouse and garden - the larvae will eat roots and corms and the adults crawl around at night and chew notches around the leaves. The best way of beating them is to attack the active larvae with nematodes. Our killer pack contains a paste which is easily mixed in a watering can.
Often you won't notice you're infested until plants start to sicken in the spring. The culprits are little c-shaped grubs with a dark head and creamy body that eat the roots of the plant. The adult then proceeds to eat scalloped edges into the leaves it comes across.
Vine weevils lay their eggs in July so by August the grubs are out and about. That's the best time to use this nematode paste to clobber them. Just dilute and water onto the roots of the affected plants.

this stuff WORKS
The product was delivered promptly and was easy to apply (using the tip by another reviewer who suggested dividing and pre mixing in a jam jar). I will not know how effective the treatment has been for a few months and I will try to remember to update this review in the light of results.
April 30th 2011- Well, I can honestly say that there has been a reduction in the rate of decimation of aforementioned plants but the problem still remains albeit at a much lower level. Perhaps another treatment may get topside of it, but it isn't cheap. Saying that there doesn't seem to be a 'mass infestation' solution on the market in terms of an 'off the shelf' product. The chemical ones in the garden centres only come in very small packs and are only designed to treat small volumes such as that of a plant pot. The cost of these are also highly prohibitive (more than 3 times the cost of nematodes)in comparison to the size of areas that they will treat, so on balance I think the nematodes are the only way forward for the time being.
The use of biological control rather than pesticides IS attractive BUT they are NOT 100% reliable. This product was only 50% reliable...despite careful attention to the instructions.
