How to Keep Weevils out of Peas, Beans & Corn

The eggs of the ordinary weevil that is so troublesome are laid by a moth while the crops are still in the field, and, as the eggs are sticking to the outside of the seed, they may be easily destroyed before they have time to hatch out. As soon as the peas, beans or popcorn are
gathered, put them in a bag and dip them for a few seconds in boiling water and spread them out to dry. This treatment is advisable for the seed that is to be used as food and not for the seed that is to be planted next year.
