Pantry pests include a wide variety of insects but the most common are beetles and moths. Most pantry pests are small and may go unnoticed until the infestation becomes large. Infestations may first be noticed as those brown specks in a bag of white flour. Once an infestation begins it can be difficult to control. Pantry pests generally prefer to feed on dry food products such as; noodles, flour, cereal, oatmeal, dry pet foods, nuts, dried fruit, chocolate and birdseed. Pantry pests are not considered a health threat but they contaminate food sources causing unsanitary conditions and waste.
