Weevilution is a popular root weevil-controlling predatory nematode, effective when applied when daytime soil temperatures reach 12°C (typically April-May). 

Root weevils feed on strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, grapes, azalea, rhododendron, primrose and many other ornamentals. The larvae devour the roots and the adults cut notch-like holes on the edges of leaves. Damage caused by adult weevils as they feed on leaves and fruit is generally cosmetic, and serves mainly as a sign of their presence. Larvae feeding on the roots, however, can result in stunted plant growth, reddening of foliage, and the production of small, seedy fruit. In severe cases, affected plants may die, particularly during dry summer spells.
