Where to use

BugClear™ Ultra Vine Weevil Killer is ideal for use on flowers, roses and ornamental plants grown in pots and hanging baskets outdoors and in conservatories.

BugClear™ Ultra Vine Weevil Killer has been shown to be safe on most plants. It is always advisable to test a sample of plants, by treating them and leaving for at least four weeks, before treating a large or valuable collection.

When to use

Vine weevil larvae are a major pest of ornamental plants. They feed on the roots causing sudden wilting or collapse and can kill the plants.

The main time for damage from feeding larvae is from July to October. Killing larvae at this time will reduce damage to plants and prevent larvae over-wintering to become adult weevils the following year. To care for plants during this time, treat in mid June and repeat in mid August to give protection against actively feeding larvae.

How often to apply

A maximum of 2 treatments may be applied per year.
