Grain Weevil

Our remedy for grain weevil control

First, contact us. Discard all infested packages. Clean spilled grain and infested cabinet areas using a vacuum followed by soapy water. Store all dried food goods in zippered plastic bags, or glass or plastic containers with a tight lid to limit spreading. Consider storing cereals and similar foods in the refrigerator to limit stored pantry pest problems.

How to Identify a Grain Weevil

Appearance

Brown, very flat, narrow oval shape; 1/10″ long.

Habitat

Grain weevils will attack packages of cereal, flour, rice, oats, pet foods, chocolate, pasta and other similar packages goods. They are found in pantries, food processing areas, warehouses and grocery stores. They crawl into packaging to eat, live and reproduce. Large populations can develop in short periods, forcing adults to leave infested foods seeking new food sources. Infestations can quickly spread to every nearby packaged food. The grain weevil cannot fly, but the closely-related merchant grain beetle can.

Diet

Cereals, cake mixes, macaroni, cookies and chocolate, among other processed or packaged foods.

I had NO idea they were acrobat ants!

“I knew I had an ant problem but I had no idea how bad it was. Our basement flooded a year ago and we thought we had remedied the problem, except this spring we found several ants in our basement. Rose identified the ants as Acrobat Ants and that the drywall and framework had many nests inside. Many! We ended up having to re-drywall the basement due to mold (and the ants) but we wouldn’t have known about the entirety of the problem if it wasn’t for Rose Pest Control.”
