All About Pantry Pest Control
Food in the pantry will attract pests more than any other item. After all, food is what nourishes humans and pests – survival is the ultimate motivator. But you simply can’t share all of your food with pests. They carry all manner of diseases and you need to secure your pantry against these pests.
The term ‘pantry pests’ can allude to many different kinds of pests. The common house mice is one of the most common, known to nibble on cheese, biscuits, bread, and other easily digested foods. Rats and ants are also typical pantry pests. The bottom line is to exhibit proper food hygiene. Clean your kitchen every night, wash the counters, and stow away all food in neat containers. Nothing attracts pests more quickly than fresh food out in the open.
There are some pests, however, that are very specific to the pantry. These include:
- Weevils (many varieties)
- Dermestid Beetles
- Sawtoothed Grain Beetles
- Flour Beetles
- Spider Beetles
- Cigarette Beetles
- Larder Beetles
- Flat Grain Beetle
- Indian Meal Moths
- Flour Mites
- Cheese Mites
The problem with many of these pests is that you could be eating grain, flour, sugar, or any other food types that have active pests like mites and beetles in them. There can sometimes be no obvious evidence aside from food that tastes slightly off.
