Vine weevil killer...Which is most effective?

Hey guys,

This is my first post..........I have a large commercial site which I maintain, which recently I have taken over.

I have noticed the Viburnum has been desecrated by Vine weevils and looks in poor condition.

Obviously I know the grubs eat the roots & the adults eat the leaves etc.....But my question to you knowledgeable gentlemen is which is the most effective currently available?

1: Provado

2:Ultra clear

3: Nemasys (the organic choice)

Any feedback greatly appreciated.

  • I wonder if it's actually viburnum beetle..... they're a quite common enemy of the viburnum. I use Provado Ultimate Bugkiller.......... works well.

    • Could well possibly be those little critters, guess I'll have to wait a little bit longer to see who the culprits are, lol.

      Thanks for the reply.
