Weevils do not "get into" your grain, weevil larvae are already in the grain when you get it. Nearly all grain has it, but its rarely a problem these days. To prevent them from hatching, you can throw your grain in the freezer for 3 days. It's a pain, I know. I bought 600# of grain in a bulk buy in Feb., and had to rotate each sack I got into the freezer for 3 days.
They usually arent a problem except in the summer, if you can keep your grain under 70 degrees or over 90-95 degrees, you'll be ok, in between is the temp that is perfect for them to hatch.
