Knowing which foods an animal can and cannot eat lets us take good care of our pets and agricultural animals.
And it also helps us get rid of pests––such as weevils.
A weevil is a tiny beetle that eats plants, and it's a major pest! Americans have to spend a lot of money to keep their plants safe so weevils won't eat them.
Often that means spraying the plants or the soil with something to keep the weevils away––or to kill them.
