  • Before then, Plarre said it would have been virtually impossible for granary weevils to find enough food to survive, much less spread globally. (
  • In other words, granary weevils don't find their way into your food after you put it into your pantry - the larvae are already there. (
  • But if granary weevils are entirely dependent on human trade to reproduce, that means they would have branched off from other species of its genus, Sitophilius , and evolved on an incredible timeline. (
  • Signs of the granary weevils' success pop up throughout history. (
  • They were excavated from an Egyptian tomb dating back to 2300 B.C., as well as from stables in Amarna from mid-14th century B.C. Sumerian cuneiform tablets, one of the earliest forms of writing, mention grain-eating pests interpreted to be granary weevils. (

  • As plant pests, their larvae live in the soil and eat roots, while the adults feed on foilage. (
  • Weather, plant vigor, irrigation schedules, history of weevils in the area, and a complex of factors may determine whether treatment is justified. (
  • The act of eating typically brings biting and chewing to mind, but sucking pests also target primula flowers and sustain themselves on plant tissue fluid. (
  • These pests skeletonise primula leaves by eating all plant tissue except for the veins, creating the appearance of a skeleton and then move onto blooms. (
  • Fond of primroses, these pests result in distortion and yellowing of plant parts, particularly leaves. (
  • The relationship between rice plant age and susceptibility to weevils is thus nonlinear. (
  • These records do not necessarily indicate that this weevil attacks living plant tissue. (
  • Regarding the sisal plant records, this plant is harvested via removal of older leaves, so the burrowing of the weevil could have exploited dead tissue resulting from harvesting injuries. (
  • The weevil(s) intercepted on cordyline could simply have been using the plant as shelter, or it could have been feeding on a dead portion of the plant. (
  • This weevil apparently feeds on a wide variety of decaying plant material. (
