Rice Weelvils ( Rice Bug )

The rice weevil (Sitophilus oryzae) is a serious stored product pest which attacks several economically important crops, including wheat, rice, and maize.

The adults are around 2 mm long with a long snout. The body color appears to be brown/black, but on close examination, four orange/red spots are arranged in a cross on the wing covers. It is easily confused with the similar looking maize weevil

How to remove them

To remove them, put them on the dry plate and knock the plate, they will walk out from the rice.
