The confused flour beetle can’t feed on whole kernels, or undamaged grain. It will feed on grain and grain products, peas, beans, shelled nuts, dried fruit, spices, milk chocolate, drugs, snuff tobacco and cayenne pepper. When confused flour beetles infest flour, they often will leave it smelling and tasting foul, but non-toxic.
Inspect the above-mentioned items for confused flour beetles or other pests, keep your kitchen and other areas clean, store items in Tupperware-type containers or sealed glass jars in a dry place, and rotate products, using your older goods first. If you think your confused flour beetle problem is escalating, call Clark Pest Control. Our highly trained technicians have the expert knowledge to solve your pest problem quickly.
