Weevils Facts & Information

How To Identify & Control Weevils

Appearance

What Do They Look Like?

Weevil species occur in a wide range of colors and body shapes:

  • Size: Many are slender or oval-shaped insects. Depending on the species, weevils range in size from about 3 mm to over 10 mm in length.
  • Color: They are usually dark-colored (brownish to black).
  • Head: The most distinctive feature of weevils is the shape of their head. An adult weevil has an elongated head that forms a snout. The mouth is at the end of the snout. Some weevils have a snout that is as long as the body. Another family of beetles called Bruchidae, such as the cowpea weevil, have a different appearance from the typical weevil. They lack the elongated snout found in the Curculionidae.

How Did I Get Weevils?

While weevils can find their way into a home from the yard, these pests usually come indoors inside packaged foods or bulk products. Weevil eggs are almost invisible to the naked eye, so it's easy to buy tainted goods without realizing those goods are infested. Weevils usually infest grains and starches like rice, flour, pasta, and cereals. Weevil infestations that start outside may be the result of fruit trees or gardens, which are also food sources. The insects often gather on the sides of homes and move into cracks and gaps that lead inside.

Signs of an Infestation

How Serious Are Weevils?

Outdoors, weevils can kill garden plants. Indoors, the pests are more of a nuisance than a danger. Weevils contaminate infested food with their feces and cast skins, causing more damage than they eat. So, an infestation may render entire packages or pantries of food inedible. Stored product weevils do not bite and they do not cause damage to dry, decay-free wood inside homes.

Signs of an Infestation

Homeowners might not notice weevils when they are gathered on the outside of the home. But if the weevils manage to find an opening and invade the home, the homeowner often finds hundreds of insects crawling on the walls and windowsills.
