We have all experienced it, the nasty black weevils dancing around in the beans. You will wonder how they got in and how they have been able to thrive even when your beans is under lock and seal.

Guess what, if you ever tought there is no way to get rid of them, think again. Here are five ways of getting rid of bean weevils.

Bay or Neem Leaves

Neem also know as Dongoyaro is commonly found in the South Western part of the country. Bay leaf is your favourite Jollof Spice. These two leaves is one of the best remedies to get rid of beetles. Put them in containers that are more prone to contamination.

Sulphur in Matchbox

This is a great way to repel weevils as sulphur is not liked by weevils.Keep the matchbox open near your beans and you won’t see any sign of the weevils.

Cloves and Black Pepper

Cloves and black pepper are available in any market and will fight off the bugs and will also avoid their infestation. You can also sprinkle some cloves in your food store. This will prevent the weevils from moving around.


Keep alredy infested beans or any other food item in sunlight. This will chase them away as these bugs do not like the sunlight and will look for a dark and moist place.

Ginger, Garlic or a Whole Turmeric

Yup, same way they hate Cloves and Black Pepper, they  also hate these three things.
