after a 2 week heat wave my fava beans are under attack from the pea and bean weevil Sitona lineatus (Order: Coleoptera; Family: Curculionidae).
any suggestions would be appreciated. i’m pulling plants that appear to be heavily infested and thinning a bit…my plants are already 24cm and well established.
my bigger concern is the risk they will migrate to my pea patch which is adjacent to the fava beans.
a very good article here
