Problem with Vine Weevil indoors

Catherine Mahon asked 11 years ago

I’ve got vine weevil in my indoor pot plants. I’ve seen some adults & got rid of them. What can I use to control them? I’ve got a lot of indoor plants & don’t want to throw them out especially a Ficus that I’ve had for 10 years. Would it be best to repot everything & use the nematodes in case any larve remain or to use a chemical control.

Vine weevils can walk in through open windows and lay eggs in house plant pots. If you think they are present, you can use the nematode control, Nemasys, watering it on.

It is good practice to use half garden soil and half compost when repotting house plants.
