Very Small elephants

Howard | 7 December 2015

These insects are called rice weevils though they turn up in a whole variety of products. These ones had found their way into some pet food. Because we found them first it prevented the risk that the shop might send them on and risk their reputation.


As is usually the case the beetles had got into the system back near the start of the chain of producers and suppliers and the shop was simply the last leg in their journey to the customer. No doubt, however, if they had not been intercepted it would have been the shop that the unfortunate pet owner would have blamed.


Being only a couple of mm long I found it difficult to get a good photo !
