Feel like you’re being eaten out of house and home? If these pests have come calling on your Bradenton property, you very well could be! Pantry pests are vile home invaders that are in no great hurry to vacate human households. Some species of pantry pest, including cigarette beetles, Indian meal moths, and sawtoothed grain beetles, are more prevalent than others. Here in Bradenton, we can experience all three! Infestations generally start when adult pests lay their eggs in food products, giving their young a chance to grow and thrive. As you might imagine, this leads to rooted infestations that are as dangerous as they are long term. Fight back against pantry pest activity with these helpful prevention tips.
Bradenton Homeowner’s Guide To Pantry Pest Prevention Tips
Professional pest control companies like Rodent Solutions have dealt with pantry pest problems time and time again. When it comes to keeping these pests out of your home or business, limiting potential exposure is key. Here are some ways to identify pantry pest activity in food items, storage spaces, and warehouses:
- Look for small egg capsules inside your store-bought food
- Feel the container or package for rips, tears, and other signs of infiltration
- Do not purchase the item if it has expired
How Are The Pantry Pests Getting In Your Home?
There is no way to be sure that pantry pests have not followed you home from the grocery store. If the signs and symptoms of their activity slip past you, it will be important to enact separate prevention measures that will take all aspects of control into account. Such as:
- Storing all food items properly after purchase, and using glass or plastic containers to store grains and other cereals.
- Cleaning the home often, especially pantry areas where crumbs could build up.
- Checking screens and other potential entry points for signs of damage or cracks. Seal these with patches and caulking, or by purchasing new materials.
Not all pest prevention techniques catch infestations before they start, but they do serve as excellent measures of protection in Bradenton homes.
