Feedback: where weevils come from...

Peter Hawkes  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Just heard you talking about the "creepy-crawlies" appearing in stored beans and wanted to confirm that you had it right; they are most likely weevils of some sort and the eggs would have been laid on the beans before they were put into the bottle.

I'd hoped you would try a tall story about super-beetles taking the lid off the bottle and sealing themselves in, but I guess we can't have it all!

Cheers
Peter

What do you think?
