Red Flour Beetle
Red flour beetles are pests found in stored grain products around the world. Although they do not cause damage to buildings or furniture, and are not known to spread disease, they can cause loss to stored food products and may cause allergic reactions in some cases.
How to Identify a Red Flour Beetle Infestation
Red flour beetles can be found in many stored food products such as flour, dried fruits, chocolate, nuts, spices, and even drugs. They are reddish-brown in colour.
Dealing with a Red Flour Beetle Infestation
Any food products that are found with red beetles in them should be discarded. Be sure to also vacuum and wash cupboards to remove any traces of food that may have spilled. Contact a specialist to inspect the infestation site and apply pesticides to ensure that the source of the infestation has been eliminated.
