What you need to know about the wheat weevil

This insect is mainly found in cereal stores, but can also be found in chickpeas, chestnuts, flour, semolina, noodles and all starch-rich foods. Very similar species can attack rice or maize.

How do you get rid of the wheat weevil ?

The wheat weevil - Sitophilus granariusDestroy all heavily damaged products, and freeze those that can still be saved. Clean the cupboard thoroughly.

Proceed methodically :
1 - Take a large bin bag and throw away everything that is not in a totally airtight box, even products that seem to be impeccable.
2 - Vacuum every nook and cranny of the cupboard or storeroom.
3 - Fill a basin with hot water + washing-up liquiddisinfectant (organic, of course!). Using a brush, scrub the entire cupboard, leaving no nooks and crannies untouched.
4 - When everything is completely dry, treat the entire cupboard with our 4J insecticide diluted at 5% (allow 500ml for 5m² of surface treated). If you're treating large areas, use the same insecticide in concentrated form. In this case, you'll need to dilute the insecticide with water in a sprayer to a level of 5% (50ml of insecticide for 950ml of water).

5 - Place a few sachets of food moth repellent in various places in the cupboard (the treatment is the same for wheat moths as for food moths).

6 - Place food moth traps (Aries or Kapo) in various places in the cupboard or in the rooms.

7 - All that's left to do is put all your food back in the cupboards, but always in completely airtight boxes.
8 - If you still have butterflies flying around, either in the room or in your cupboards, you can get rid of them for good using either Ecodoo insecticide spray or Aries flying insect repellent.

All our customers who have followed this procedure have quickly solved the grain beetle problem in their stores.
