Weevils are a type of beetle belonging to the superfamily Curculionoidea. About 97,000 species of weevils are known and are usually small and herbivorous. They belong to several families, with most of them in the family Curculionidae (the true weevils). Although not closely related, some beetles bear the name “weevil”, such as the biscuit weevil (Stegobium paniceum), which belongs to the family Ptinidae. Their ability to kill and damage crops is why they are considered a pest. The grain or wheat weevil (Sitophilus granarius) damages stored grain. The boll weevil (Anthonomus grandis) attacks cotton crops; it lays its eggs inside cotton bolls, and the larvae eat their way out. If you have weevils in your Alpharetta kitchen or pantry, you should call Bulwark to remedy the infestation.
