Is Your Food Pantry Safe?
The drugstore beetle was most likely named as such because it was found infesting early pharmacies where dried herbs and other plants were used to compound medicines. Today they are known as pantry pests eating almost any dry foot product consumed by humans. Unlike many other food pests (excluding moth species) these robust tiny beetles are excellent fliers and move about our homes with ease.
So if you find drugstore pests where you story dry food products be prepared to throw them away. Even then you will likely need the assistance of a professional pest management firm to control and/or eliminate these pests.
