I have a crap ton of weevils. Is there something that is effective I could try?
There are many different species of weevils, and this makes it difficult to control them because each species has a different life cycle, different food preference, different habitat, and different control method needed. Often times you will be able to identify the weevil that is causing you problems based on where you find them. For example, if you are finding damage and weevils on spruce trees, white pine weevils are probably the culprits. Getting rid of weevils is dependent on the identification of the species. We recommend contacting your local Cooperative Extension Office for a pest identification. Once we have the weevil identified we would be able to make a proper product and treatment recommendation.
