I'm afraid that they laugh in the face of derris... I dusted liberally and they all bounced around - I swear I could hear them "look its snowing guys!".  They were throwing snowballs and making little snowbugs with sticks for legs.  Then they multiplied the population size x100 and ate all my cauliflowers, cabbages, mizuna, rocket and lettuce.  Evil weevils is their proper name.

And just think. When GM OSR becomes universal they`ll probably grow as big as cats.
