Rice Weevil

Our remedy for r control

First, contact us. All products containing whole grains need to be inspected, along with decorative items such as Indian corn and boxes containing seeds. Discard all infested packages and products. Clean spilled grain and infested cabinet areas using a vacuum followed by soapy hot water. Clean all sides of all shelves and walls. Pull out appliances to access and clean any fallen debris underneath. Store all dried food goods in zippered plastic bags, glass or plastic containers with tight lids to limit spreading if one food becomes infested. Consider storing cereals and similar foods in the refrigerator to limit stored pantry pest problems.

How to Identify a Rice Weevil

Appearance

Dark brown with four light-colored patches on its wings; the head extends into a long thin “beak”. 1/8″ in length.

Habitat

Rice weevils attack whole grains such as wheat, corn, barley and rice. In homes, infestations are generally found in bird seed, nuts, decorative Indian corn and, in rare instances, in old pasta stored in cupboards or pantries. The rice weevil and its close relative, the granary weevil do more damage to stored whole grains worldwide than any other pest.

Diet

Primarily whole grains, but also beans, nuts, cereals, pasta and fruit.

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.”
