I’m not sure what our pantry pests are-they are too small to really tell, but they keep reappearing and I have cleaned all the cabinets, washed them and sprayed Raid. They might be flour beetles or rice weevils. I will order the D-Force Aerosol, but which type of pheromone traps should I purchase since I don’t know what kind of pest we have?
There are many types of pantry pests which can make their home in your kitchen cabinets. And you are right; you must know the species if you wish to get the right pheromone trap. Unfortunately, identifying the species is tough for us to do over the internet so here’s what we suggest.
First, see if it looks like one of the pests we have listed in our photo album. There are many insects to choose from and with any luck, you might find a match.
Second, give us a call on our toll free 1-800-877-7290. We’re open 6 days a week and it’s possible one of our technical reps will be able to get a positive id based on description. And if for some reason you’re not able to contact us, getting the D-FORCE AEROSOL and some PANTRY PATROL TRAPS would be the next best thing you could do. The D-Force is going to be needed one way or the other and the Pantry Patrol does a good job of catching a wide range of common pantry pests which invade cabinets.
