Sometimes we open up food products to find the surprise of uninvited guests wiggling in what we had hoped to consume. These insects and their larvae are grouped into what is called “pantry pests” and they inhabit flours, grains, pastas, nuts, pet foods and much more.
What to do about these unwelcome visitors? And how to evict them after they have spread into the home? Your local Cooperative Extension Service can assist you with identification and control options. Start with our fee publication titled, of course, Pantry Pests.
Your local Cooperative Extension Service is your year round resource for a variety of topics, visit us today at: http://www.uaf.edu/ces/districts/kenai/ to find this publication and more or stop by and see us in the Doors and Windows Building on Kalifornsky Beach Road between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
We are “Learning for Life.”
