Flour beetles like grain products and are often found in empty warehouses where they eat food waste from flour, bread, beans, pasta, spices and cacao in cracks. They prefer warm climate around 30 degrees. They attack food and make it mold and smell bad.
How to avoid them:
- Keep clean in the larder.
- Reseal flour bags after use.
- Store dry goods in temperatures below 20 degrees.
Suitable treatments: cleaning and in special cases chemical treatment.
