Drugstore Beetle Print E-mail
drugstore beetle Description
The Drugstore Beetle is similar to the Cigarette Beetle in appearance but is slightly larger, more elongate, and has distinctly striated wing covers. The last three segments of the antennae are like a saw. Its food is even more varied than that of the cigarette beetle, and it is said to feed "upon almost anything except cast iron."

Habitat
Anywhere around food

Type of Damage
Pantry pest

Control
This is one of the few household bugs that may be controlled by the diligent "do it yourself pest control" person. Control of this pantry pest begins with the location of the infested food. A thorough clean up, using a vacuum cleaner to get into the cracks and crevices, will control this pest.

Interesting Facts
Its peculiar diet includes such odd materials as strychnine and books as well as flour, oatmeal, spices, and other foods.
