I am battling with a large infestation of root weevils on my whole property.
They are especially rampant in the backyard where I have large rhododendrons & hydrangeas & climbing roses.
Because of the scale of the garden I'm not sure how to tackle this.
We live on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia-zone 8.
Everything in my garden is getting decimated, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you looked into perhaps using beneficial nematodes rather than chemicals?

Would this be the time of year to apply nematodes?

I used nematodes years ago and don't remember exactly but I did find this website that might be helpful.

I honestly can't remember if the nematodes are just a "general" type or not.
