Rhyzopertha dominica, Lesser Grain Borer


The Lesser Grain Beetle attacks rice, corn, wheat and grains and leave behind dust and malted skin. The beetles are roughly 3mm in length, are brown or black and are able to fly. There are four larval stages and the female beetle lays roughly 30 eggs at a time. A musty smell has been noted in association with a Lesser grain Beetle infestation.
