biological alfalfa weevil control

Asked May 27, 2015, 11:04 PM EDT

Hello, I am a graduate of UW, and I had a number of entomology classes, good stuff. I am a cattle rancher and we farm a couple hundred acres of alfalfa/pasture. Im interested in trying to boost my biological control of weevil. Ive read that the Bathyplectes wasps, may be my best bet. Do you know of any other options? And d o you have any ideas on where I could purchase a large quantity of weevil weapons.

Thank you for your question for eXtension. Please contact me at the Extension office in Worland (307-347-3431). I have some resources for you, and a opportunity to participate in a trial with biological insect control in alfalfa.
