Project Description

Flour Beetle

flour beetle

SIZE: 1/8″

COLOR: Reddish brown


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.


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.
