We Had A Weevil Invasion In The Kitchen
November 30, 2017 6:21am CST
The bugs in the kitchen were weevils. The Griffin pest control person figured out yesterday where the nest was. It was in the bottom of our curio cabinet where we keep the birdseed. Needless to say, the birdseed had to be thrown out. It was full of the tiny bugs. So, after almost a month, I shouldn’t have to keep looking for them. It was getting very annoying to keep looking for bugs. This is the second time they had come out. This guy said the other one might have been new so he didn’t recognize what kind of bugs they were. But he didn’t know we had birdseed either. I told my husband to make sure to move the cabinet so he could spray better so that’s how he found out yesterday. This morning, I found about ten. He said we would still find a few for a couple more days since the nest was in the house. They were attracted to the grain. I sure hope this is the end of that because I don’t like bugs.

I've heard of weevils before but never heard of anyone that had seen them before. Doesn't sound like much fun. Over here in the middle of the state we had a major amount of stink bugs, they resemble aphids but are bigger. Lots of folks had them in their houses too. In fact, just last night something somewhat large buzzed past my ear and that probably was the offender. I never did find it later though, but I do still see them elsewhere from time to time. At least you sought professional help to get rid of them and know the source.If you kept the birdseed in the garage or shed it should eliminate the problem I'd think. At least it would keep them far from inside the house.

I talked to someone at work last night that bought birdseed. They keep theirs in the garage, but they've seen different types of bugs in their seed before too. Mainly moths and other types of critters, so keeping it outside somewhere might be your best bet.
