I have small black beetles eating the roots of my large variegated agave and also the blue agave.
Two different yardmen applied something which did not work. Please advise. Thank You

I've had the same thing happen, and it killed my large agaves. There are grub killers that work, but I can't remember the name. Here is an article about them.

We also seem to be having an invasion of Root Weevils. Do Agave Weevils attack the roots?
