Similarly, you may ask, what does a weevil look like?
Weevils are a small insect, about 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch long. They are mostly brown to black in color and can have spots on their thorax and abdomen. Weevils start their life as a small caterpillar like larva which hatches on some type of food like rice, seed or nut.
Also, can you see weevil eggs? 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.
In this manner, can weevils infest your house?
Adult weevils look for shelter in unfavorable weather conditions, especially when it is hot and dry. Weevils enter buildings by crawling through cracks or openings around foundations, doors and windows. They do not harm people or pets, or damage buildings or property, or infest food products.
How do I get rid of weevils in my house?
Remove the food from your pantry shelves and use a vacuum attachment to suck up any loose bits of food or flour. Take a wash cloth dipped in soapy water and wash all of the shelves and anywhere that there may be spilled food. If you've found weevils in other rooms of your house, vacuum them up.
