Just bought a 10KG bag of rice husks to serve as mulch for a supersoil grow. Turns out the bag is full of small dark-colored tiny beetles, I asssume rice weevils. I already decided to not use it but the bag was open in my growroom for about 20 mins so let's assume some of them made it out the bag. I was wondering if they pose an actual risk to cannabis plants.
Thanks!

Not from what I read about them that said I wouldn’t use the soil.
They might well eat seeds planted in it and cause other unforeseen problems.
Apparently they’re pretty prolific so you might want to do a clean of the tent.

You could bug bomb the tent before use ( not with anything in it ) bleach it / use peroxide
