Weevils in rice. Jar of rice infested by numerous weevils (black). Rice is a cereal crop grown and eaten by large numbers of people around the world. Weevils are small beetles that infest a wide range of plants and crops. Grain weevils infest and damage stored grain, using the mandibles at the end of their elongated snout to cut through the shell of a wheat grain and gain access to the food within. Females lay their eggs inside wheat grains in order that their larvae can have a food supply.
