When You Find Small Flying Moths And Beetles Scurrying In Your Pantry…
Among the most common home invaders is a pest known as the “pantry moth.” The term refers to a variety of pests that can take over your kitchen, turning it into a musty-smelling habitat for moths and beetles
What Do Beetles Eat?
This group of beetles and moths will consume almost anything including bread, pasta, cereal, flour, grains, and powdered milk. Without treatment, these pests will continue to multiply and infest your cupboards; they will leave no area of your kitchen untouched.
How Do Beetles Get Inside?
These pests usually sneak in through wall cracks but may also hitch a ride inside grocery bags. You may not notice an infestation at first, because the beetles and moths are small and easy to overlook. Their population, however, will soon grow as they lay their eggs and begin to systematically invade every food product in your pantry.
Can Beetles Hurt You?
Common beetles, including the Black Carpet Beetle, Varied Carpet Beetle, and Furniture Carpet Beetle, can wreak havoc in your home. They destroy food, fabric, clothing, blankets, leathers and hides, and even furniture!
