Success Stories Our weevils!!!!
Here in southern NM, we had more rain this past summer than I remember in almost the past 30 yrs. The goatheads that I thought I had eradicated over the past 8+ yrs on our place by pulling & pesticides began sprouting everywhere. We bought a selective herbicide which we'd had success w/ in past years, but they were coming up almost faster than we could spray, and we didn't want to kill all of the natural "weeds", mostly just the goatheads. I'd looked at your website last yr., but didn't order. This year I decided to take a chance w/ just one order, and a mere 3 months later, we are amazed! The lush green carpet of goatheads is reduced to brownish dying ones!!! I can hardly wait 'til next year to find out whether our precious weevils will survive the winter. We'll keep you posted. We thank you, and our dogs, Mato & Lady, especially thank you. I'm telling everyone who will listen about your marvelous weevils!!!

Success Stories We Have seen a tremendous decrease this year!
We heard about your products last year and ordered several containers of weevils. We applied them to selected test areas such as football practice fields and other locations. We have seen a tremendous decrease this year in the amount of puncture vine in those locations. We would like to introduce the weevils to some additional campuses this year!........

Success Stories It Works!
I just wanted to drop you a note, to let you know that our little "precious" bugs are doing their job! We put them out just over a month ago, and they are on the move to destruction. It is a joy to see the green goat heads turning to a brownish orange and to know that our little buggies are doing what we bought them for. Thank you for having such a wonderful product. We will definitely be purchasing more as needed, as the weevils do work miracles!

Success Stories There are NONE now!
Bottom line, in one area that was INFESTED with Goatheads... there are NONE now! I'm seeing seed weevils in all the seeds I've looked at. They are doing a great job! I'll have even fewer plants next year!

Success Stories I am amazed, and don't mind saying so.
I just had to write, again, and say thank you for your weevils. I purchased one order from you about 3 years ago, I think. I know I wrote last year to tell you what a difference I was seeing...now, I just had to write to rave about the difference! I am amazed, and don't mind saying so. Let me put it in perspective for you. We have 10 acres, that had puncture vines "carpeting" 4 to 5 acres of that. They were not quite as thick on the remainder, but heavy enough that pulling regularly was not keeping up with them. And in the heat of West Texas, that was a miserable job. I think I set the weevils out in the fall, and the following year didn't see much difference, even convinced myself it wasn't going to work. But the next year, the two heaviest "carpeted" areas were CLEAN, not even a hint of a puncture vine. And the remaining area was showing a significant decrease...more than easy to keep up with by pulling. Neighboring property was still quite heavy with the vines, and causing some influence on our property, but still not to a discouraging degree. This year, however, I have to say, puncture vine is nearly non-existent on our property, and I know they haven't done anything different to decrease their problem. I am absolutely overwhelmed each year with the improvement I see, and I cannot thank you enough. I'd be glad to be a reference for you if you ever need one. Thanks again,

Success Stories Goathead War
My girlfriend and I recently bought a new house in Santa Fe, NM. The backyard is big, but obviously has been nothing but a weed patch. My dogs first steps into the yard were ended quickly by goatheads. We spent weeks cutting and digging all the weeds, swept the yard to get the loose goatheads and foxtail seeds, and even wrapped an old blanket around a trashcan and rolled it around the yard picking up more goatheads. Then we put in about 250 ft2 of buffalo grass plugs on 1 ft. centers overseeded with blue gramma. The grass is doing beautifully, but so are the weeds. We are spending hours a week crawling around on our hands and knees, but we finally have the goatheads on the run. We tried a 24D herbicide in a test patch, but it killed the gramma seedings and browned the buffalo, so we gave it up. Had I known about a weed torch at the time, it would have saved me a lot of trouble now.
