Protect Your Home and Business From Beetles.
Beetles Found In Washington State
Beetles—commonly pantry pests or stored product pests—are insects that can attack your household or business inventory of stored grain products or dried goods. Once these beetles burrow themselves inside a food product, their population can explode and move throughout the rest of your commodities without notice, contaminating your food supply and costing you money.
Stored product pests often enter homes, warehouses, or businesses through cracks and crevices as they scavenge for food. Additionally, these pantry pests can be directly transferred via infested products, finding their way into shipping and receiving containers directly from food manufacturers.
Although these beetles aren’t aggressive, they can ruin your dried goods in a short period of time, so it’s imperative to understand the ins and outs of these bugs to help with infestation identification.

The most common beetles found in dried goods infestations are:
- Drugstore beetles
- Saw-toothed grain beetles
- Merchant grain beetles
- Cigarette beetles
- Flour beetles
- Spider beetles
- Rice weevils
- Granary weevil
- Carpet beetle
