Pantry Pest Control
When you think of pantry pests, mice may be the first thing that comes to your mind. Unfortunately, pantry pests are often much smaller than these little mammals, and may be able to do more damage.
When we talk about pantry pests, we are speaking primarily of pantry months, pantry beetles, meal moths, and grain beetles. While pantry moths and other small insects of the sort do not typically harm your property, they do harm your food, often rendering it non-consumable.
Different pantry pests ruin your food in different ways. Some, like the Indian Meal Moth, have larvae that produce both webbing and excrement. The warehouse beetle can leave its hair behind in foodstuffs, which humans can then consume. These hairs irritate the mouths and intestinal tracts of those who eat them unknowingly.
Most of these pests are general feeders. That is, they will eat anything that they can get into; even your spices aren’t safe. These pests often lay eggs in your stored food, which then hatch and grow in your consumables. Some of these insects are so small that you never get a chance to lay eyes on them. In fact, you may even blame the damage to your food on something else entirely.
If you notice damage to your food or its packaging or have food that consistently “goes bad” for no good reason, it’s time to call a professional pest control team.
Pantry Pest Control Services Offered
We can get rid of pantry pests in your home. While none of these pests are dangerous to humans, no one wants to eat contaminated food. Along those lines, no one wants to get ill from eating contaminated food.
It can take a very focused and persistent effort to rid your home of pantry pests. Moths in the house can be a good indication that you have an issue. If you notice these insects, call us so that we can:
- Offer Advice—We will inspect your cupboards and pantries and offer advice for better sanitation and storage options. The containers that you are currently using may not be efficient if you want to keep pantry pests out of your kitchen. Our team will show you how to properly seal and dispose of any damaged food containers.
- Set Traps—Most pantry pest traps only attract a specific type of insect. This can be problematic if you have more than one type in your home. We will set the right traps for you and give you the knowledge necessary to maintain them.
- Chemical Methods—Chemical methods are typically unnecessary in all but the most severe of infestation situations. If we suggest chemical management, you can rest assured that we believe it is the only way to rid you of your problem.
