Caption: Grain weevil. Grain weevil (Sitophilus granarius) emerging from a cereal grain. This beetle infests and feeds on stored grain, and is a serious pest. It punctures the outer layer of the grain and uses its long snout (rostrum) to feed on the material within. The female lays her eggs in the holes she makes, ensuring a supply of food for the developing larvae. Infestations can be controlled through the use of insecticides.
