The pesticides listed are legally available in the UK. This information is provided to avoid misuse of legal products and the use of unauthorised and untested products, which potentially has more serious consequences for the environment and wildlife than when products are used legally. Nematodes are best used straight away, but they can be stored in the fridge and used within 12 days. The main downside with using nematodes to control vine-weevil larvae outdoors, or in an unheated greenhouse, is that they are very sensitive to temperature. This control works best if the soil remains above 12°C for at least 14 days after use. This makes August and September the most effective application period, though you can apply in April or May before the adult weevils emerge from their pupae if it is warm enough. By October it’s generally too cold to deal with them outdoors. Suppliers of biological controls for vine weevil
