Also known as stored product pests, pantry pests include a wide variety of insects, from ants and pillbugs to Indianmeal moths and confused flour beetles. They target flour, grains, sugar, dried fruit, nuts, and more, making them a real threat to warehouses and food facilities. Read on to learn about Isotech’s top tips for preventing pantry pests.

Pantry Pests in Commercial Buildings

There are a lot of types of pests that can be considered pantry pests, including beetles, ants, earwigs, and pillbugs. Most pantry pests won’t pose a major health risk, but they can become a major nuisance when they infest warehouses or other commercial buildings. Their presence can lead to failed inspections, shutdowns, and more. Flour, grains, cake mixes, candy, chocolate, and other pantry staples are just a few of the things they will infest. Worst of all, these pests infest quickly and can spread, which is why it’s so important to know what you can do to prevent them.

How to Prevent Pantry Pest Problems

Preventing pantry pests in commercial buildings requires thorough methods. It’s always recommended to team up with a professional pantry pest exterminator.

A few things that are important when preventing pantry pests include:

  • Securely store all goods. Damaged packaging or open packaged goods are more susceptible to being infested by pantry pests. Make sure to properly store all goods.
  • Regular inspections: Routinely inspect your products for signs of an infestation to keep problems from spreading unnoticed.
  • Cleanliness & sanitation: It may go without saying, but making sure your facility is clean at all times plays a big role in pest prevention.
