In warehouses, infestations in stored products often start with the beetles feeding on dead insects in storage areas. So it is important to apply good hygiene measures to eliminate sources of infestation. It is also recommended you install a monitoring network of glue and pheromone traps and check the traps regularly.
If you have a warehouse beetle problem at home, you should check your food to see if it’s infested. All food should be put in airtight containers to avoid further contamination. It’s also a good idea to vacuum cracks and crevices in the pantry to eliminate any food residues and insects. Then throw out the vacuum bag to prevent the insects from multiplying. Lastly, apply Maheu&Maheu Crawling Insect Killer
or Maheu&Maheu Insecticide Dust
in cracks and crevices in the pantry and adjacent areas. Before treating with an insecticide, make sure you remove all food from the pantry.
