Below I have provided a link to a directory of vendors of beneficial organisms in North America. I did not see seed weevil on the list, but there are places listed here you can contact to make an inquiry. The use of seed weevil against scotch broom is still in the experimental phase, so I would advise pursuing other measures to combat scotch broom, as discussed in the following article:
