Columbia has a rich history. On March 22, 1786, a bill was approved by the state legislature establishing Columbia as the capital. Columbia went on to grow as the decades passed. In 1865 during the civil war, much of the city was burned. In 1917, Fort Jackson was established for army training during World War I.

Weevil As Pests

They are considered as pests because they are known to damage and kill crops; crops like corn, grain, and cotton. Outside your homes, they can kill your garden plants; indoors they contaminate your food with their feces. So if you do not believe that weevil is pest, then talk to the farmers whose crops they damaged.

They are also a source of annoyance for homeowners. Once weevils invade homes, they usually do so in great numbers. They manage to enter homes whenever they find small openings. Homeowners often find them on the walls and the windowsills.


Weevils feed on plants and crops. That is why they are always found in gardens, on plants, and orchards.


Once you spot weevils at home, dispose of the food products that are contaminated. Then after removing these contaminated products, thoroughly vacuum the areas you deem were infested by the weevils. If you find the weevils in newly bought food products, return them to the store immediately. Make sure it will be destroyed. The number of weevils should decrease once you are able to locate the contaminated foods. Store food in air-tight containers. Other unopened food items, especially those in boxes, to check if these were contaminated too. Seal off all cracks an opening in your house, as weevils can make this their entry points.

Weevils prefer damp, dark places. What you can do is put a damp cloth in dark places within your house. Soon you would be catching weevils. Once you find enough weevils on the cloth, put the cloth in water to wash them away. Repeat as necessary.

You may also try some natural methods, like using neem oil or bay leaves. Neem oils should be sprayed on places you often see weevils. The bay leaves, on the other hand, are natural repellents. You may put them in your rice or cereal containers.
