Therefore, kind of food host coupled with the prevailing environmental condition played a significant role in maize weevil body size, as basic nutrients influenced the metabolic activities in insect.

The larvae damage maize crops by developing within an individual grain, eating it away from the inside out until mature, and then reproducing, releasing more crop-damaging larvae. Növényvédelem. Journal of Stored Products Research. During large infestations, heat and moisture are produced, leading to colonisation by moulds and mites.

Low-temperature storage of rice is extensively practised to control insect pests in Japan. The use of ash from Aloe marlothii Berger for the control of maize weevil, Sitophilus zeamais Motschulsky (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), in stored maize. Annals and Magazine of Natural History, Series 13(4):241-244. There was significant difference ( < 0.05, F = 10.7; < 0.05, F = 0.93) in the average body measurement at 3rd and 4th instar stage; weevil cultured on maize had the longest body length and width compared to those cultured on millet (body length  mm, width  mm) while the shortest body measurement was observed on weevil cultured on millet (length  mm, width ).

Besondere Probleme bereitet die Bekämpfung der atmungsinaktiven Puppen von Sitophilus zeamais.

She then deposits a small oval white egg, and covers the hole as the ovipositor is removed, with a waxy secretion that creates a plug. The mean developmental period for third larval instar was 6.5, 5.7, 5.7, and 5.3 days on rice, maize, sorghum, and millet, respectively, whereas, at fourth larval stage, it was 4.7, 5.6, 5.7, and 5.3 days on rice, maize, sorghum, and millet. Plants or extacts from a considerable number of other plants have exhibited toxicity to S. zeamais. Anais da Sociedade Entomologica do Brasil, 25(3):521-528.
