Have you noticed small pin holes in packages of dry food products in youy pantry? Maybe you have noticed small beetles of moths in your pantry? You may even find bits of silk clinging to your food packaging. These are signs that you may have a problem with Stored Product Pests.
Stored Product Pests are a group of insects that feed on and/or lay their eggs in dry packaged grains such as flour, corn meal, rice, cake mixes and pasta. These include pests such as cigarette beetles, confused flour beetles, drugstore beetles, indian meal moths, red flour beetles, warehouse beetles and rice weevils. The adult insects lay eggs in the packages of dry goods. The eggs then hatch and the larva feed on the dry goods, eventually transforming into an adult insect and chewing though the packaging to escape.
In order to eliminate stored product pests in your home, it is important to identify and discard any infested packages as well as perform a thorough treatment of the infested area.
