One common beetle is the Drugstore Beetle. The adult beetle is about 1/8 inch long and is brown with a dense covering of short yellowish hairs and grooves on the wings. The immature stages are yellowish brown, C-shaped and with a dark head.

The adults do not feed, but the larvae attack a variety of food materials, including cereals, flour and meal, spices, and drugs. The larvae can penetrate food packaging. The life cycle lasts 3-7 months.

Controlling Beetles

Remove and discard all infested material, and vacuum the infested areas. Pheromone traps may be used to monitor and or reduce infestations in large food storage areas.
