Abstract

DRIED and preserved foodstuffs such as raisins, currants, oatmeal, nuts, and flour are often found to be "weevily" after long storage.

Strictly speaking, the term "weevily" should be applied only to material attacked by certain types of beetles, but the expression is now popularly used in connection with practically any insect infestation of stored products.
