Grain Weevils can be found in grain stores throughout Europe, and are often carried via sacks for importation of grain and cereal products. Grain Weevils are significant pests for farms, as they are able to infest otherwise undamaged grain and attack other hard cereal products like macaroni or spaghetti. This can reduce the weight and quality of the grain, make it unpalatable and lead to other the spread of bacteria and insects.
For Grain Weevil pest control, stores should be built soundly, with good insulation and ventilation. Grains should be stacked neatly above floor level, away from walls and should not touch the ceiling, allowing plenty of space for cleaning and inspection. Insecticides can be applied to fabrics inside the stores, or a variety of grain protectants can be used.
