My plants are being eaten by an annoying gray insect which I believe to be some type of weevil. It’s very small, and I really need to stop it from destroying my plants and would like to eradicate it without using pesticides. Can you help?

You also can try knocking the bugs off into a dish of water mixed with a little dish soap.
