Hurricane Wind's Effect On Sri Lankan Weevils?
« on: September 13, 2017, 04:17:15 PM »
Over the years I've noticed that Sri Lankan Weevils are easily shaken out of my lychee trees. Hurricane Irma passed right through here and my lychee trees survived just fine. I sorta wonder if the weevils did. Those trees, and everything else was really whipping around!  Do you think the weevils were blown away?

The bad news is the larva feeds on the roots and will emerge as new weevils and the cycle will
start over. It's too bad all the damn weevils didn't get blown back to Sri Lanka :-[
