This group is mostly made up of different species of beetles and moths. Feeding on natural or organic materials in clothing or stored food, these pests can be very destructive to our everyday way of life.
As with many destructive insects, it is the larval stage that does most of the damage. Some beetles, such as: Carpet Beetles, Drugstore Beetles, Merchant Grain Beetles, Granary Weevils, Flour Beetles, and Cigarette Beetles can attack pet foods, spices, grains, pastas, beans, cereals, even prescription-type drugs or toxic materials.
The Mediterranean Flour Moth and Indian Meal Moth will attack mostly grain products as well, like cereal, flour, corn meal, nuts, and breakfast products. Case-Making Clothes Moths and Webbing Clothes Moths feed on many natural animal fibers such as wool, fur, feathers and hides. Most of these Pantry Pest Control activity can be seen in jackets, sweaters, shoes, and expensive area rugs.
The level of destruction is dependent upon the population and how long the larvae have been feeding. Many times a problem with these pests is not noticed for many months or possibly years due to infrequent use of clothing or not rotating stored food stuffs often enough. These pests are often brought into a structure in a bag of pet food or by a bird nesting in the attic. They could even find their way into an old yellowjacket nest or rat nest in the crawlspace, feed on the remaining organic material and then start invading the house. This is why a thorough inspection is absolutely mandatory with these pests.
Pantry Pest Control Process
Usually pesticide treatments are preceded by the removal of infested materials. We can help in determining what items need to be discarded but typically the more potentially-infested items you discard, the better the overall outcome will be. Unless the infested items have significant monetary or sentimental value, we will recommend that they be thrown out.
