Your Friend the Weevil

Everybody wants a friend, but nobody wants it to be a weevil. We salute the most grossest of insects by showcasing numerous products piggybacking on the Weevil craze. From T-shirts to books to electronics, this little critter is a crossover hit.

Torchwood Weevil

Hours of fun accompany this adorably creepy action figure. Wrap it up as a gift for the adorable creepy action figure collector who has everything. Leave one in your cubicle for the cleaning crew to find. Tuck one into the little space between the couch cushions in the common area of your dorm. Whatever you do with it, someone is sure to be horrified.

Safer Brand 05140 The Pantry Pest Trap

Sure, weevils are great, when in proper context: most of us prefer our weevils in a neighboring county or on the other side of a major waterway. Deploy numerous instances of this handy pest trap to keep the little buggers at bay while you cook dinner.

Each trap wields a time-released pheromone that should persist for about 3 months. That's long enough for even the most persistent weevil to lose interest and trundle next door.

Clear Weevil Snout Beetle Bracelet

A cute weevil encased in transparent Lucite may be the perfect gift for that mad scientist in your life. It's probably not something you want to tuck into a gift bag at a sweet-16 party or clasp around the delicate wrist of your prom date, but be sure to keep a few on hand just in case a Torchwood rave breaks out. The beetle is supposed to be real.

VWPICS MACRO INSECTS - Red palm weevil - Tile Pen Holders

We'd be hard-pressed to come up with anything more appropriate for a pen holder than a stylized weevil. Store your writing instruments vertically while reminding yourself precisely what you don't want to see crawling across your desk.

The red palm weevil is blamed as the most destructive and dangerous pest in the growing areas for coconut and date palms in Asia. Think twice about gifting this pen holder in certain parts of the world.

Red palm weevil - Greeting Cards

It's not us. but someone really thinks highly of the marketability of red palm weevil office supplies. If a pen holder or three fail to satisfy your thirst for this creature and you don't actually want live ones running around, consider ordering a few packs of greeting cards festooned with their likeness.

Yu-Gi-Oh! - Inzektor Giga-Weevil # 22

Yu-Go-Oh! is a human rather than an icky bug, but eventually even the most prosperous franchises run out of ideas. The Giga-Weevil trading card has super powers over the Giga-Cicada and the Mega-CottonSweater. This card will delight teenage Yu-Go-Oh! players while sending shivers up the spines of involved parents, which is what self-respecting Yu-Go-Oh! players want anyway.

Kitty's Critters 3-Inch Weevils Figurines

Stock up on Barbie Dolls and weevil figurines: you'll have hours of fun playing house. Barbie can phone up Exterminator Ken and put him on retainer.

These glossy ceramic figurines are the perfect gift for someone extremely special. We recommend putting them under the bed for Orkin to find: those guys love a ceramic weevil practical joke.

Red palm weevil - Light Switch Covers

Again, someone really feels strongly regarding the marketability of red palm weevil-branded products. The trend continues. Should you continue to shop, you may identify red palm weevil cookware and perhaps red palm weevil energy drinks. We suggest stopping to locate an online support group.

Londons Times Funny Society Cartoons - Lesser Of Two Weevils

Proudly display your love for all things weevil by wearing this classic London Times cartoon on your outerwear. Surely no one ever thought of this insect pun before the good folks on Fleet Street. Don't even consider appropriating this epic instance of wordplay, lest a plague of red palm weevils infest your date trees.

Hot Wheels Evil Weevil

It's fast and it eats cotton. On the other hand, it's fast and it looks like a Volkswagen Beetle. Certainly you can tell them apart. The Hot Wheels interpretation zooms down a track to glorious model racing victory. The bug hides in farm fields and nibbles away profits. You probably can't order the bug on eBay.


Scads and oodles of weevil-related products cam be ordered online. Whip out your credit card. Stock up on all things buggy.
