Finding creepy, crawly creatures in your foodstuffs is a sickening experience. There’s a name for this common problem – stored product pest infestations – and Blue Chip Termite & Pest Control has got the solution. We’ll eliminate insect infestations in your pantry and dried food goods. We’ll also identify why the infestation occurred and show you how to prevent it from happening again.
Pests in Stored Foods
Stored product pests include tobacco beetles, weevils, pantry moths and mites. They often enter the house in infested packets of dried foods such as cereals, nuts, grains, seeds and even tobacco.
Most stored product pests are tiny, so it’s very easy to be unaware of them at first. However, once an infestation takes hold, you often start to see moth larvae on cupboard shelves or small insects flying around the kitchen. Unfortunately, even the cleanest kitchens can suddenly become infested with stored food pests.
The main triggers for infestations are humidity and warm weather. Brisbane and surrounding areas are therefore especially prone to problems with stored product pests.
Some stored product pests can lay up to 400 eggs at a time. So if you think you may have a problem, it’s best to take action right away. Call in Blue Chip Termite & Pest Control, the professionals in stored food pest control in Brisbane, if you see any signs of an infestation.
