Weevil Invaders: Recognizing Signs Of Infestations In Your Lawrenceville Kitchen

Lawrenceville is home to a myriad of pantry pests, from Indian meal moths to cockroaches and ants. But perhaps worst of all is the sneaky weevil – one of Georgia’s most widespread kitchen invaders.

For the unfamiliar, weevils are a type of grain-loving beetle that often winds up in kitchens and pantries. They multiply fast and eat through grains even faster, resulting in an uncomfortable situation for local homeowners.

Thankfully, there are a few ways you can spot the early signs of a weevil problem. There are also several strategies for getting rid of active infestations. We’re covering both in this comprehensive guide, including some prevention steps to reduce weevil attractants. 

Need immediate treatment for weevils in the Lawrenceville area? At the bottom of the guide, you can check out the step-by-step process provided by ProCare Pest Services.

Let’s get started.

Indicators Of An Active Weevil Infestation

Weevil infestations in Lawrenceville are much like termite infestations – you don’t often spot these pests until they’ve spiraled out of control.

Fortunately, you can keep your eyes peeled for the not-so-subtle indicators of weevils, including:

  • Round beetles roughly 1/8 of an inch long
  • Dull brown to black exoskeletons with red-yellow spots
  • Long ‘snouts’ extruding from the face (which is why they’re sometimes called long-snout bugs)
  • Small grubs or live beetles crawling in flour, rice, or other grains

If you’re having trouble identifying the types of weevils in your home, you can contact ProCare Pest Services to set up an inspection. First, we identify your pest problem. Then, we offer a free quote. Our goal is to get started with treatments as soon as possible.

Why Weevils Are A Problem

Weevils cannot bite or sting like other household pests. They also cannot spread diseases, which is a positive.

But what’s not a positive is the amount of damage they cause. Weevils can eat through dozens of different food sources, contaminating grains with their exoskeletons, larvae, and droppings. You need to throw out the entirety of contaminated food, which can be both frustrating and expensive to the afflicted homeowner.

Thankfully, it’s possible to remove pest attractant factors to protect the ones you love. Here’s how to prevent weevils from infesting your Lawrenceville home.

Reducing Weevil Attractants

To reduce your probability of a weevil infestation, you can remove attractant factors like:

  • Unsealed flour, rice, or corn sitting out on your counter (by sealing them in bins)
  • Potentially infested grains from the store (by inspecting before purchase)
  • Dry grains on the counter (by freezing them for a week to eliminate eggs)
