Detection and prevention
The confused flour beetle is a pantry beetle and although it moves quickly, it does not have wings. Thanks to its small size and crushing jaws, it can even tear into sealed packages. Adults and larvae feed on anything floury, including grains, cookies, oatmeal, rice, etc. They can be found in food warehouses, bakeries and even sometimes in our kitchens. It is important to immediately eradicate this type of beetle as they have a very quick reproduction cycle. If you have an infestation in your pantry, contact the specialists at Guet-Apens Extermination immediately.
