Hi all, last year about April or may I had two blueberry plants starting to shrivel up, probably vine weevil, I drenched the whole plants and soil with Provardo vine weevil killer, mixed it with water for creamy white liquid, shouldn't have done but it was all I had at the time, one of them survived, it did say up to 4 months protection, well its been 9 or 10 months now, will I be able to eat the fruit this year or will I have to through it away. thanks sam.



Provado is a systemic insecticide but it only last around 3-4 months. So I would assume the fruit is safe to eat given the length of time and the amount of transpiration that has occurred since application.
