WA State, South Puget Sound area here, This year I have seen a fair
amount of weevil and slug damage, even among those with an aggressive
IPM program. Yet W/O pics it is only a guess. Do check these two.
Lot of slugs hatching this year.
It took me a month or two to get the weevils under control this
year. Bios no help, soil too cold until 1st third of July. Sevin did
best control, too wet for DE until late summer months here. Just now
dusting with it. Chickens don't help much w/ weevils as their two
different sleep cycles. Neem not so effective on weevils. You might
try cardboard traps if so inclined.
Good luck, hard to find Okra folks up here in the PNW. My other half

What do the weevils look like? I don't think I've ever seen them, don't
even know what they look like or where they hide during the day.
I can eat okra day and night....and then eat more...
The plants are alive, but they barely survived childhood. And here it is,
the middle of August, and the weather forecast is 70 and cloudy.
I lost half of my cabbages to cabbage worms. By the time I found them, it
was too late.
I'm pulling 6-8 zucchinni form the garden every day, and my cucumbers have
become an invasive species. Tomatillos exploding from every corner of the
garden. Even the eggplants are huge, which is strange considering how cold
the weather has been here. Some plants like this weather, some don't...
I've been going out night and day, and I have yet to see anything eating
them. The sevin stopped the carnage, but it wore off after week or so, and
the defoliation resumed. Between the cold weather and bugs eating the
plants, I'm loosing hope of getting an okra crop this year.
OTOH I'm pulling 6-10 zukes a day from the garden, and the cukes are not
