Effective Stored Product Pests Control Solutions

Stored product pests, commonly known as pantry pests, are a frequent nuisance in households. These insects infest stored dried foods, posing a threat to the integrity and safety of your pantry supplies. At ECO Global Pest Control, we understand the importance of keeping your home free from these pesky invaders.

Types of Infestation

Nearly all dried food products can be susceptible to infestation by stored product pests. Cereal products like flour, cake mix, cornmeal, rice, spaghetti, crackers, and cookies are common targets. Seeds such as dried beans and popcorn, nuts, chocolate, raisins, dried fruits, spices, powdered milk, tea, and even cured meats can also fall victim to these intruders. Additionally, non-food items like bird seed, dry pet food, ornamental seed and dried plant displays, ornamental corn, dried flowers, garden seeds, potpourri, and rodent baits are at risk.

Infestation Sources

Stored product pests can infiltrate both opened and unopened packaging. They possess the ability to chew through materials or find their way into packages through folds and seams. Once inside, they begin to multiply rapidly, spreading to other stored foods within the same area and even to other rooms in your home. Infestation can occur at any stage, from production to the arrival of the product in your home. However, it is most likely to happen in stores or residences.

Identifying an Infestation

Detecting a stored product pest infestation is crucial for prompt action. Look for the following signs:

  • Presence of live or dead insects in your stored food or packaging.
  • Webbing or silk-like threads in the corners or crevices of your pantry shelves.
  • Small holes or tunnels in food packages.
  • Discoloration, clumping, or foul odor in stored food.
  • Larvae or pupae in food items.
  • Sudden appearance of moths, beetles, or weevils near your pantry area.

Protecting Your Stored Products

Prevention is key when it comes to protecting your stored products from infestation. Here are some essential tips:

  • Inspect packaging before purchasing and avoid damaged or open containers.
  • Store dried foods in tightly sealed containers made of glass, metal, or thick plastic.
  • Regularly clean your pantry and shelves to eliminate food residues and crumbs.
  • Rotate food items, using older products before newer ones, to prevent prolonged storage.
  • Check expiration dates and dispose of expired products promptly.
  • Consider freezing or refrigerating susceptible items for extended storage.
