Pantry Pest Extermination


Pantry Pests include Flower Beetles and Indian Meal Moths. Usually when moths or beetles appear in the kitchen it’s due to old expired grain products in your cupboards.  This includes nuts, flour, oat meal, corn meal, cereal, pasta, cake mixes or bird food.  Inspect all these items and look for bugs, webbing, larvae, or pupa.  Discard infested product and then vacuum cupboards to eliminate spilt food and bugs.

Most often this is all it takes to solve your problem.  It can take several months sometimes for the pests to progress through their life cycle and hatch into the adult before getting 100% control.  We typically don’t get too involved with treatments for these pests but are here for advice.
