  14. Eggs are laid either singly or in small masses in
    crevices in the food supply, although they are also
    laid freely in such items as flour.

  16. The larva nibbles on finely divided food
    particles because it cannot feed on large particles,
    such as whole grain.

  18. The female bores a hole in a grain kernel,
    deposits a single egg in this depression, and seals
    the hole with a gelatinous fluid. She may lay as
    many as 300 to 400 eggs in her average lifetime of
    four to five months.

  19. These exit holes are usually the first sign of grain damage, and by this time serious damage may have been done
    to the entire lot of grain
