Pantry Pests

What are pantry pests?

Pantry pests are what their name suggests, a group of pests that breed in and feed on dry stored food products. Flour, cereal, dry pasta, dry pet food, powdered milk, crackers, spices, breads, bird seed, nuts and dried fruit are all examples of common food for these pests to invade. Indian meal moths, beetles, and weevils are common types of pantry pests found invading homes.

How do pantry pests enter my home?

Pantry pests are most often introduced into homes by purchasing dry goods that are already infested with eggs or nymphs. Adults can be attracted to lights and may enter into homes through cracks and crevices found around exterior windows and doors.
