Sitophilus granarius, Grain Weevil

The Grain Weevil’s larvae (also known as the Wheat Weevil) are able to chew through packages and infest grains quickly as the female lays eggs up to around 250 times! It is reddish brown to black in colour and 2-3mm in length. Unlike several other weevils, it is not able to fly.
