What do you do when you find weevils in your grains? Weevils can be handled in one of several ways. If it is just a few, they are just extra protein. I have eaten them on many occasions and so have you. They are in many commercially processed foods. The FDA even has an allowance for how many insects parts can be allowed in foods.
As I said if it is just a few, I am going to cook and eat them. If there are more or you can’t tolerate the thought of consuming them. There are a couple of other solutions.
Weevils tend to float, so simply fill the grain pan with water and wait for them to float to the surface. Do this a couple of times and most of the weevils will be gone. My personal favorite is to spread the grain out in the sun, no more than ½ inch deep. Stir it a couple of times to make sure they are all exposed. The weevils don’t like the sun and will leave on their own.
If you still have power you can place the grain in the freezer. This will kill them.
If you pack grain with weevils in it using can or Mylar bags with oxygen absorbers, the lack of oxygen will kill the weevils. Just remember eating weevils won’t hurt you.
