Pepper Weevil
this creature has plagued my tomatoe and pepper plants for several years. I live ESE of Orlando in the town of Grant Valkaria. Insect positively identified as Faustinus cubae by U of Fl. I tried nematodes with modest results. I'm now using a systemic approved for fruit & vegetables.

What about size
on this batch of weevils?
