Hunt County Texas integrated pest management
Pecan Weevil is a serious problem for pecan growers in those Texas counties that are affected by it. I am not aware of research in our institution on using beneficial nematodes for this insect. We have two good extension specialists with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension that you may want to consider contacting directly: Bill Ree (email@example.com) and Allen Knutson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The USDA-ARS Southeastern Fruit & Nut Laboratory in Byron, GA, has scientists working on weevil control, using things like soil fungi to control weevil. Their website is: http://www.ars.usda.gov/main/site_main.htm?modecode=60-42-05-00
The scientist most chiefly involved in that research is Dr. David Shapiro-Ilan.
