Weevil Control Company Near Hickory NC


Hickory, NC has emerged as one of the most desirable cities to live and do business in North Carolina. It is just a small city located in Western North Carolina. This used to be a tiny town but has grown to become a city with more than 50,000 residents. It has been recognized only recently as one of the top ten best places to live in the United States, according to Reader’s Digest.

Today, Hickory continues to reinvent itself. Residential and commercial establishments now abound. The downside of it is that with the presence of humans, the pests come with them. Pests that include the weevil.

Weevil As Pests 

They are considered pests because they are known to damage and kill crops; crops as corn, grain, and cotton. Outside your home, they can kill your garden plants; indoors they contaminate your food with feces. So if you do not believe that weevil is evil, 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.  

Weevil Control

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 can 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 and openings in your house, as weevils can make this their entry point.

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 where you often see weevils. The bay leaves, on the other hand, are natural repellant.  You may put them in your rice or cereal containers.
