DESCRIPTION:

Flour Beetles infest flour, breakfast food, baking powder, beans, peas, dry pet food and other starchy materials. Hundreds of flour beetles can live and reproduce in a small box or bag of infested food. The adults can migrate throughout the kitchen and infest any other attractive foods in open containers left undisturbed for long periods.

CONTROL ADVICE:

Discard all infested foodstuffs and place all newly purchased flour, sugar, breakfast food and similar products in canister-type containers. Thoroughly clean the cupboard and storage bins with soapy water. For a serious infestation, contact a professional technician.

ACTIVE SEASONS:

Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter
