    Had not seen a single one before tonight but I certainly have plenty of them now. All my regular feed is in the feeders so no regular feed in the storage cabinets. I'm keeping my feed etc.. in plastic storage containers but they are not air tight. I wasn't sure what to do. I mixed some DE in with the scratch. Not sure if I should just throw it out or not? Opinions and ideas on getting rid of the weevils? I plan to get some 5 gallon buckets with screw on lids for my feed and such from now on. Just want to make sure I get rid of them and that they don't spread.
