Vine weevils are now prevalent in London containers as they are endemic in Cyclamen, Heuchera, Primula and Polyanthus and other plants used for winter and spring interest. While nurseries are able to avoid visible damage to plants by using chemicals continuously, the beetle, grub or eggs are likely to be concealed in the soil.
If left untreated, these will destroy the affected plants, infect the soil in their container and the adult beetle will move to other containers and open ground thereby contaminating the entire garden.
Contact Emma for a consultancy visit or online advice on the identification of the 3 life stages of wine weevil and biological and/or chemical control.
