Flies and ants are usually considered common kitchen pests, but there are other pests that NJ homeowners should be aware of. Pantry pests, which can invade food supplies, are making a comeback in NJ.
These pests aren’t a health threat to humans, but they can cause significant damage to food supplies stored in pantries and cupboards in a short amount of time. Homeowners who see any of the following pests should seek help from Monmouth County pest control services.
- Confused flour beetle: These reddish brown beetles tend to feed on flour and related products rather than whole grains.
- Drugstore beetle: These dark reddish-brown beetles typically feed on drugstore products, pet food, breads and spices.
- Indian meal moth: These pests, which have reddish-copper markings and white wings, feed on corn meal, beans, spices, grains and several other food products.
- Rive weevil: These dark brown pests use their long snouts to poke holes in packaging and lay one egg inside. They tend to feed on cereal, beans, nuts and bird seed.
- Sawtooth grain beetle: These brown beetles are tiny, which allows them to easily get into packages of cereal, flour, grains and other food products.
