Swenk, M. H. (1922). Insect pests of stored grains and their control (University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station Circular No. 15)
In Nebraska there are about 20 species of insects that injure stored grain more or less. Some are beetles and their larvae, others are the caterpillars of small moths. To the farmer all are "weevil," although that name is really properly applied only to two beetle species-the granary weevil and the rice weevil. The following paragraphs and illustrations will describe the several more important stored grain pests to be found in this State, so that the farmer may recognize the particular pest or pests that are doing the injury to his grain, and may then apply the proper remedy.
