All corn has bugs in it, if not bugs then eggs. It is just a matter of how mature they are, how many, etc.

Not all corn has bugs in it if is treated when it is bagged. That treatment only lasts so long but it will keep bugs from starting. Humid weather/rain can lead to more problems. Brown Bugs are the most common and more of a PITA than what weevils are with corn. Clean the feeder out and spray it, let it air out and then refill it with clean corn.

Best place to store left over corn and keep the bugs out is a walk in freezer.

Pigs are Omnivorous they will eat the bugs.

We've had weevils a few times, always fed it and never seemed to have a problem. I don't like it but I didn't think it was a big deal.

If you got a fine powder around your bags or when you pour the corn out you've got weevils! Deer will still eat the corn. Had them bad last year let corn run out that was "infected" let feeders run dry for a month or 2 and the heat took care of them.
