Pantry Pests

General Food Pests – “Are they livining in your pantry?”

There are many types of insect pests that infest foods. They may be found inside food and its packaging, in cupboards, or on counters. Although control can be difficult, prevention is relatively simple.
These pests can be organized into groupings, such as Beeetles, Weevils and Moths. One of the most common is the saw-toothed grain beetle, a tiny brown beetle about 3 mm (1/8 inch) long. Other problem food pests include , drug-store beetles, granary weevils and several types of small moths.

Foods Attacked
A wide variety of foods can be attacked by these insects. These foods include cereals, crackers, dried fruits, nuts, flour, cake mixes, dry pet food and spices.
