Where do weevils in beans come from?

John Franklin  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
I was listening to a question that was put to you regarding tiny little insects appearing in a sealed bottle of beans. I have had this happen with rice, beans and other grains stored in sealed bottles.

I know these creatures a weevlils and I think you must be right that the eggs must be present before storing.

Thanks for a good program.

John
