Hi All

We have been collecting seeds from our System for several years and recently found weevils in Pea seeds.

Over 90% now not viable!

Have had to purchase seeds (Not happy Jan)

The weevils have infested our seeds prior to harvest.

Does anyone have a safe remedy for keeping the weevils at bay until the seeds are ready to harvest

without harming the fish?



Bon&Mark :dontknow:

Cover the entire plant with fruit fly netting until ready to harvest. Easier done with bush type than climbing peas!

Great

Had not thought of that

I retired 7 years ago and the brain as well!
