Pantry Pest Infestations
Just as their name suggests, pantry pests (also known as stored product pests) are insects and bugs that live in and feed off of dried goods. Whether you own a food storage facility or a grocery store, pantry pests can be a nightmare in a commercial setting. The best form of pantry pest control is prevention, which is why it’s important to learn how to keep them away in the first place.
How to Get Rid of Pantry Pests
Stored product pests aren’t as dangerous as other pests, but they can still be a real nuisance to deal with. To prevent a pantry pest infestation:
- Ensure all dried goods are stored securely. To keep pests out, always store food and baking ingredients in airtight containers.
- Properly store seasonal items. Dried foliage, Indian corn, and other seasonal items should be kept in sealed containers while not in use throughout the year.
- Inspect your groceries. At the grocery store and before bringing them indoors, check your purchased goods for damage.
- Check expiration dates. Before you use your ingredients from a year or two ago, make sure to check the expiration date and toss any expired items.
- Get pest control from a professional. A pantry pest control expert can identify & eliminate stored product pest threats in your facility.
