Kitchen Pests [video]


Kitchens have always been a gathering place in the home; however, there are some unwelcome visitors' homeowners would rather not gather in the place where we store, cook and eat our food - pests!

Pantry pests can easily find their way into kitchens contaminating foods, spreading bacteria and ruining a "sacred" space in the home.  They tend to gather around food often stored in pantries and cabinets such as flour, dry cereals, spices, candies and chocolate. Some of the more common pantry pests include several types of beetles and Indian meal moths.
