Stored product pests, also known as pantry pests, are a group of insects that feed on flour, cereals, and dog food as well as other dry, stored food items. Stored product pests that are common in Gainesville, Tallahassee, and throughout Florida include:
In many cases, beetles, moths, and other stored product pests get into your home or business through items that have already been infested because of damaged packaging or during the transit process. Because many of these insects lay their eggs inside the grains, it takes time for the pest problem to develop. Once it does, however, it can get out of hand quickly
Stored product pests don’t cause damage to your home, but they do contaminate food products and render them unsafe to eat.
Most homeowners have trouble getting rid of stored product pests on their own because they infest a wide range of items. The first step is to throw out all contaminated food; then, contact us to help evaluate the extent of your pest problem and to give you an estimate on treatment.
At McCall Service, we take all pest problems very seriously and are committed to providing you with relief as soon as possible. In most cases, we can respond the same or very next day.
Stored product pests can wreak havoc on pantries and warehouses if the infestation is allowed to spread. For homes, it’s best to inspect products at the store before taking them home. The best way to stop stored product pests from infesting your products is to use trustworthy vendors and ensure good supply line relationships. Most importantly, contact McCall Service at the first sign of a pest problem to stop the issue in its tracks.
