Sitophilus oryzae (Rice weevil) (Soryzae_2.0)

About Sitophilus oryzae

The rice weevil (Sitophilus oryzae) is a stored product pest which attacks seeds of several crops, including wheat, rice, and maize. The adults are usually between 3 and 4.6 mm long, with a long snout.

Female S. oryzae use strong mandibles to chew a hole into a grain kernel after which she deposits a single egg within the hole, sealing it with secretions from her ovipositor. The larva develops within the grain, hollowing it out while feeding. It then pupates within the grain kernel and emerges 2–4 days after eclosion.
