Vine Weevils have become the number 1 pest in UK gardens over the last 25 years. A native of the UK, it spread rapidly after an old ‘DDT like’ insecticide was banned & before a safer replacement was introduced. The adult is a nuisance as it cuts half moon size ‘bites’ out of evergreens. However, it’s the grub that does the most damage. These slow developing larvae live for 2-3 years eating the roots of many plants. They love the relative warmth of patio pots and container.

The first sign of damage is a collapsing plant, that on inspection seems to no roots. In investigation of the compost the grubs are found.

NemaKnight Vine Weevil Nematode Control is a pesticide free way to control this awful peat. If you find it in one of your pots, it’s almost certain your other pots have them too. Treat those also as a precaution.
