Pantry Pest Facts: Pest Control Guide for Homeowners & Tenants

Pantry pests are brought into your home
in flour, oatmeal, cereal, and other dried products. Often times they will get into the food during the manufacturing process, and are enclosed in the packaging. The two most common pantry pests are moths and beetles. The Indian meal moth is the usual suspect among moths, while the most common beetles include the warehouse beetle, saw-toothed grain beetle, and the merchant grain beetle. To help prevent infestations, avoid purchasing food products that are opened, or in damaged packaging. Store food and containers with airtight lids that have rubber gaskets or a screw top, and routinely clean areas where spilled flour and other bits of foods tend to accumulate.
