Vine Weevil - Houseplants Pests and how to Control them
Some links in this post may be affiliate links
The adult bettles of the vine weevil attack the leaves but it is the creamy-white grubs (larvae) which causes the real damage. They live in the soil where they rapidly devour roots, bulbs and tubers. Their presence is indicated by wilting of the plant.
- Destroy their hiding places by getting rid of debris and other dead plant material around the plant.
- Use sticky insect traps to catch the mature insects which move from houseplant to houseplant.
- Drench the soil immediately with a Lindane chemical solution. Use as prevention measure if the mature bettles are noticed on the leaves.
