Default Honey, Why are those bags of corn making a noise?

Had six bags of corn from last season that I have been saving until about the middle of August, but when the wife asked "why are the bags of corn making noise?" I made a quick inspection to find about four weevils for every kernal of corn. (thats about forty million per fifty pound bag) I guess I will start feeding a little early this year - hopefully all the extra weevil protein will help antler growth. If youve been storin any corn, you might better send the wife out to listen to it - just in case!

Yup, weevils devoured some extra corn I was saving last year. Thus I kept the feeders going after the season eneded until I ran out of corn.

If you are going to store any corn put so DE into the bag... Go to a feed store and ask for DE (Diatomaceous Earth), should help with weevil control... Also good for flea control, and worming animals...

Just had the same problem with 2 bags I have in the garage. The almost empty bag was feeding roaches and the unopened bag was feeding weevils. Double-bagged them and put em outside for now.

DE - food grade DE is your best best when storing.

The original bags do not stop them.
If you look real close, you will find tiny pin holes in the bag.
Sealed or not, they go right thru the bag(s).
I would not be surprised if they were in the bag from the supplier, on purpose.
Putting the unopened brand new bags in a rubbermaid container does not stop them either.
