Grain Weevil Identification
A-Tex Pest Management of Austin, Texas is well versed in the pantry pests invading homes and businesses locally and in surrounding areas including the granary weevil also known as the grain beetle and wheat weevil. These beetles are approximately 2/10” long and are a somewhat cylindrical beetle. With a prolonged head and a distinct snout the extends downwards from the head, these weevils can be found in array of colors from polished reddish brown to black and feature ridged wing covers, but they do not fly. Their life cycle is very similar to the maize weevil as they rapidly hatch into white, fleshy grubs, quickly evolve into the pupa and finally as adults within a short span. One pair of weevils can produce up to 6,000 offspring per year! And like all weevils, they will quickly ruin food supplies. Granary weevils infest foods such as wheat, barley, oats, rice, corn and rye.
