Carrot Weevil

Vegetable Gardening



Description: Legless larva or grub is white with a brown

head. Infested carrots have tunnels and soft tissue

in upper part of roots.

Solution: Super-Light Insect Barrier provides

an excellent shield if edges are kept buried under soil

through spring and summer. (Adult beetles crawl over

ground to lay eggs at carrot’s base.) Apply Grub-Away Nematodes while plants

are still small to prevent infestation; once weevils

have started tunneling, the damage is done.
