What Is A Weevil?

Weevils are small beetles, usually less than 1/4 of an inch in length who eat only plants. They are often considered pests due to the fact that they can damage entire crops. Several species of weaves like the wheat weevil, maize weevil and boil weevil will damage stored grains like wheat, corn or cotton. You might find them in your home in a similar place: in your pantry in your flour, rice or cornmeal. 

Will Weevils Damage My Home?

Weevils do not harm people or pets and do not infest food products. They do not damage buildings or property but they can be annoying and troublesome.

Weevils are attracted to dry food and have the ability to access any food source you may have stored in your pantry by chewing through the outer packaging. You might spot them in your packaged nuts, seeds, cereals and in any grain product. 

Are Weevils Dangerous?

Weevils pose no danger to people or their pets. If weevils have gotten into your pantry and have infested your grains, you might find that the grains have become sticky or moist and even possibly have begun to sprout. They can cause food spoilage but are not harmful or toxic if ingested and are not considered disease vectors.
