Christmas And The Stored Product Pest

First of all, what is a stored product pest? These are bugs that don't generally work their way into your home. These creatures, or their eggs, are already inside the food you purchase from the store, and are carried in when you bring your groceries home. What makes these pests such a big pain around Christmas? They are often found in the dry stored food items we use to make Christmas dinner. If you plan on using flour, rice, wheat, spices, dried soup mixes, seeds, cereal, and other dried goods, you may be off to the store to stock up on these items.

They are so creepy looking with those huge pinchers hanging off the end of them. Almost prehistoric, you think as you try to decide what to do with the big mess you created when you dropped that plant pot in your panic. As you look around you realize that the ‘billions’ you saw have quickly vanished; but where did they go? All of a sudden you feel as if they are crawling up your back, and you run for cover brushing at your skin every step of the way.
