In this post I'll be giving step-by-step instruction for building a weevil trap. Before starting you will need to gather the following tools and supplies.
Heavy duty staple gun
Book binder's stapler
Hot glue gun
Aluminum screen wire, 36 inches wide
Wood strips, 1.5 inches wide and 0.5 inches thick
1/2 and 3/8 inch staples for staple gun
1/4 inch staples for book binder's stapler
Deck screws (3 inches long)
10 gauge wire
Boll weevil trap top assembly (order here)
Install traps by the 1st of August. Check traps at least 3 times per week. If you capture an average of 2 weevils per trap it is time to spray for pecan weevil. Continue to monitor traps after applying the first insecticide treatment. If weevils continue to emerge, wait at least 10 days before making a second insecticide application.
