The strawberry root weevil can destroy raspberry and strawberry plants. Root weevils are bugs whose larvae destroy plants at the root and whose adults feed on their foliage. Though no harm, their numbers can be intimidating.
Get Rid of Weevils
Cowpea weevils are stored product pests. They consume all manner of beans. Adults prefer dried cowpeas and will infest storage facilities. Areas with high heat and humidity are ideal environments. These are not true weevils.
Black vine weevils are the largest of the root weevil family. They feed on ornamental plants used in landscaping – young on the roots and adults on the foliage. Control is best attempted at night with a dim light.
Prevention is the best method to keep rodents out of a house. Ensure all openings to the outside are sealed with proper materials. Keep counters clean, food properly stored, trash sealed, and all of it away from the ground.
Termites can devastate a home. They feed on the products used in construction. Signs of damage are hollowed wood, mud tunnels at the foundation, piles of wings or swarms, blistered paint, and minimal water damage on walls.
The first step in controlling bedbugs is finding their hideout. Once located, a plan of action can be enacted. High heat, inescticides, and powders are all good at eliminating bedbugs. Consult a pest control expert for help.
