Weevils weevils everywhere
« on: August 27, 2017, 07:01:53 PM »
I got back from a short deployment and holy crap did weevils go nuts. And the stupid snake head caterpillars, they were covering my normally healthy and strong Key lime tree. I drenched them in Adonis and sprayed them with a foliar spray with spinosad in it. I know the caterpillars are toast from the spray, will it take out the citrus weevils too? I pulled and crushed all of them I could find but its a largish tree so I am sure I missed some. Also quite a few on a nearby navel orange although oddly, none on the giant unknown orange tree next to them or on the pink lemon.

The weevils by the way are the grey with orange/red stripes that have made their way to central FL with these warm winters we have been having.

Any natural predators? Stink bug? Ants?

Granted I am on a connection that makes dial up seem fast, but where do you find those sprays listed? Amazon has only the soil treatment stuff and Mustang was far too expensive for my needs on the one site I found it on.
