A: grain weevil, also called Granary Weevil, Grain weevil (Sitophilus granarius). [Credit: Sarefo] (species Sitophilus granarius), insect of the family Curculionidae (order Coleoptera), a common pest of stored grain. [ This small brown weevil is about 3 to 4 mm (0.1 inch) long. The female bores a hole in an individual cereal grain and implants an egg in it. The fleshy white larva feeds on and then
pupates inside the grain, which may be of dried corn (maize), oats, wheat, or allied plants. The adults also feed on cereal grains. When disturbed, the adult weevils feign death. ]

User: State one way by which tick is of economic importance

Weegy: The impact of tick feeding and tick-transmitted diseases and their control should be much better defined in economic terms. [ Tick control on livestock remains to a large extent based on acaricides but their use in possible combination with anti-tick vaccines and utilization of host resistance to ticks should reduce dependency on chemical tick control. Research into novel, ecologically sound, practical tick control methods should be intensified and implementation of existing methods to vaccinate against tick-borne diseases is recommended, as well as intensified research towards developing novel vaccines and delivery systems. Much progress is expected in the next few years by the use of tools available in the post-genomic era. It can also be expected that new tick-borne pathogens will continue to be discovered. Furthermore, in the future we may be able to exploit for medical purposes some of the considerable number of bio-active molecules of the fascinating largely undisclosed tick pharmacy (see chapter by Valenzuela in this Supplement).
