The weevil, which is in the Curculionoidea superfamily, is a very small beetle measuring to only about 6 mm to 10 mm. They have over 60,000 families of species and are a very similar species to the beetle. One large difference between the typical beetle and a weevil is that the weevil has a snout. In fact, this snout can be up to the size of their own bodies! The weevil is known to be a dark color, typically brown to black. These pests are also known to kill crops, especially corn. 



The weevil can often be seen inhabiting the same or similar areas of the beetles. Two common types to destroy crops are the cotton boll weevil, which destroys cotton, and the wheat weevil, damaging stored grain. The cotton boll weevil will attack cotton crops and lay their eggs in the plants, with the larvae eventually eating their way out.

The weevil’s egg will take about three weeks to fully develop and grow in a boll or square-like structure. The weevil is also known to invade or attack in the fall season, while the others will make their way in the summer when it’s hot.

In the home, they will inhabit dry foods such as grains, nuts, and cereal. The weevil can possibly spread E. Coli infection or other harmful diseases if they come in contact with food products.

Elimination & Control

If your home shows any type of weevil infestation, it is best to remove any contaminated products in your pantry immediately! After these items are disposed of, thoroughly vacuum your kitchen, it’s cabinets, shelves, etc. To remove any leftover flour or bits of food. These creatures will make their way through small cracks or openings in buildings, so make sure they are sealed properly to prevent further infestation.

When the weevil invades, they will also crawl on the walls, window seals, and furniture. You can use a vacuum to get these creatures up and away, but make sure to empty the vacuum outside so they cannot make their way back in. To prevent the weevils from invading the pantry or kitchen, freeze or heat food products to preserve the items. Also, clean all of your pantry and kitchen, preventing any future weevil infestations. Check out our pest control services today to prevent Weevils and many other pests from invading your home.
