Weevils are actually beetles, part of the family Curculionidae. They are slender or oval-shaped and typically dark-brown to black in color.
They vary from 3 to 10 mm in length, and their most distinctive feature is the elongated head which forms a snout.
Weevils feed on plants; most are found in gardens, yards or orchards. Some weevils are known to be destructive to crops; others attack stored grains and seeds.
Certain types invade homes in large numbers, their lifecycles vary greatly. In fact, many homeowners won’t notice until they have invaded and hundreds are crawling on the walls and window sills. A vacuum cleaner is a quick method to get rid of existing weevils (just be sure to empty it outside).
The best control method is to find the infested material and dispose of it. Carefully inspect items before purchase to prevent future infestations. Check around doors and windows for missing caulk and damaged weather stripping. Look inside crawl space vents and attic space for torn screens.
