Pantry Pest Identification & Prevention

What are pantry pests?

Pantry pests are small insects known for invading dry goods and packaged foods. Pantry pests range from beetles to moths. Adult pantry pests will lay their eggs inside stored flour, pasta, grains, and other packaged items. The eggs then hatch into pantry pest larvae which feed on the items and continue the lifecycle into pupa and then adult pantry pests.

There are several different types of common pantry pests, and the species you will need to look out for in our area include rice weevils, drugstore beetles, Indian meal moths, confused flour beetles, and sawtooth grain beetles.

The pantry pest control experts at Explorer Pest Management can help you identify the type of pest you are up against on your property and suggest ways to keep them out.

Why do I have a pantry pest problem?

Pantry pests most commonly find their way to properties after being transported in dry goods and packaged items bought in a grocery store. It's important to check for signs of pantry pests in the items you buy to avoid accidental infestations.

Additionally, some pantry pests may be attracted to lighting around your property or the aroma of food and will slip inside any cracks or gaps in your home's exterior in their pursuit of food.

Where will I find pantry pests?

Pantry pests are most commonly found in and around dry goods such as bags of flour, rice, grains, and sugars. They may also inhabit packaged items like cookies, pasta, and bread. You are most likely to see pantry pests in kitchens, food storage or preparation areas, food processing and storage facilities, and grocery stores.
