Who Else is Eating Your Cereal?

Pantry pests are a real thing and can in fact be a real big problem. At Sureguard Termite and Pest Services, we want you to be aware of these pesky insects, how you can prevent them and how you can treat them.

Often found in flour, cereal, herbs and spices, pantry pests are most often weevils, a type of beetle. How do they find their way into your pantry? Most of the time, these insects are brought into the home from outside and can originate at the food packaging facilities, warehouses or retail stores.

These insects have 4 stages, egg, larva, pupa and adult. The adult phase is when we often see them but the other stages are more than likely there if you have seen the adults. You will want to eliminate the food as soon you recognize it and call your Sureguard Termite and Pest Services representative to treat the area. While routine service from Sureguard certainly helps prevent these types of insects from making their home in your pantry, as stated above, you can’t control bringing them inside from outside sources however we can certainly help eradicate the the problem if it does find its way inside.
