|Do these little monsters attack Manfreda as well as Agave? On our campus we have both genera and some of the Agaves have been attacked by the evil weevils and I want to get rid of them on both if I need to.

|I know they will go after Yuccas, but not sure about Manfredas.
It is what it is!

|I'm not sure, either. I would imagine that the weevils would be more motivated by a monocarpic plant than a polycarpic one, all things equal, given the energy being stored up for flowering.|

|The genus "Manfreda" has been merged back into Agave. I'm sure the wevils never thought there was difference, and munch on all of them.|
