Caption: Weevil (Sitophilus sp.) inside a pea, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The weevil develops from an egg laid in a hole on the surface of the pea. The larva burrows inwards and then pupates before emerging as an adult. The adult then gnaws its way out of the pea. Weevils such as this are major agricultural pests, primarily attacking stored grains and fruits. An infestation is capable of destroying entire batches of food.
