In Asia, chili not only serves as a delicacy, but as a crude but effective insecticide. The Asians would hang the chilies under the hot sun and dry them deliberately. It is generally believed that by putting the dried chilies onto uncooked paddy, it could keep the rice weevil away effectually. Other usage includes hanging the chilly on fluorescent lights to chase away fireflies.
