Nemasys® Vine Weevil Killer - Keep vine weevils at bay naturally by applying Nemasys® Vine Weevil Killer at least TWICE or use it MORE OFTEN in sheltered gardens or underglass where vine weevils grubs tend to be active much earlier and much later in the season. It is important to treat when grubs are present i.e. in the spring (March – April ) to control any grubs which have over-wintered and in the autumn (Sept) to control any grubs which have hatched from eggs laid during the summer.
Left untreated, vine weevil grubs will feed on your plant roots causing permanent damage and even death to the plants. Nemasys® Vine Weevil Killer works at temperatures above 5°c/40°f and should be applied as soon as grubs are present and the soil temperatures are suitable.
Microscopic nematodes control vine weevil and are safe to you, your children, pets and wildlife. Great value for money. Totally safe to use on food crops such as strawberries. Suitable for organic growers, safe and harmless to children, pets and wildlife.

We waited for rain: it rained steadily for two days before we applied the vine weevil nematodes and rained again for a few days afterwards. The product is very easy to use. Getting it to the roots of large shrubs is the biggest problem. I gave a 4/5 mark because I don't know yet if all the vine weevils are dead. However, from a ease of use viewpoint, it get 5 out of 5.
These evil weevils can destroy a garden, so the sight of dead weevils after using this product was a happy one indeed :)
Used this product before found it excellent ... so here's going to say goodbye to Vine Weevil
My problem was 5 or so young potted plants with characteristic notch damage on the leaf margins. I didn't find the adult weevils, but binned the five affected pots.
Package arrived the next day in post, I applied that afternoon and happily it rained over the next few days which should have facilitated the nematodes seeking out their hosts. I found the instructions easy to follow (as a first time user). Now I just hope it is effective!
Have used this for a few years now and can recommend it, Unfortunately the adults come in from the neighbours so I have to use it regularly. Very easy to apply. Put trays under your pots for a few days.
