Our excellent Pantry Pest Service
Confused Flour Beetle
Indian Meal Moth
Sawtoothed Grain Beetle
There are many types of beetles, weevils, moths, and silverfish that commonly infest cupboards. They find their way into your pantry by hitchhiking on food products, or in storage bags and boxes. In most cases the adults lay eggs in cracks and crevices of shelving, boxes and rims of canned goods.
Corky’s Pantry Pest treatments are sold by application. This treatment includes infested areas especially cracks and crevices. (Heavier infestations may require additional treatments). It is not uncommon to see a few of these pests after the initial service. Identifying the type of Pantry Pest will aid in finding the source of infestation.
Preparation for Indoor Services
It is necessary for you to prepare for our arrival and a succesful treatment of your home. Here is what you do.
- Prepare all occupants and animals to leave the premises for up to four (4) hours or until the treatment materials are dry.
- Prepare birds and reptiles to leave the premises for ten (10) hours minimum.
- Remove and examine all items from the pantry or areas of infestation.
- Throw away any infested items in a sealed bag and dispose of in the outside trash.
- Inspect and clean all canned goods.
- Remove all shelf paper and wash cupboards with hot soapy water.
After treatment is completely dry, you may return the cleaned uninfested sealed products back to the cupboards. Do not clean the treated areas after the treatment, this will remove the materials used to combat your problem and will leave your pantry unprotected.
If you are uneasy about having your food stored in close proximity to the materials used in treatment, shelf paper may be used as a barrier.
Pantry Pest Video Script
Hi this is Corky of corky’s pest control.
Getting rid of pantry pests requires a cooperative effort between the homeowner and the pest control company. Eliminating pantry pests requires that you take all the products out of your pantry. Go through each one of your products and throw away the ones that are infested. We will provide you with pictures of pests that normally affect your pantry so that you can recognize insects of concern. If you have a question, our technician can tell you which pantry items you can keep and which ones you should throw away.
As a rule of thumb, anything you’ve had in you pantry longer than 6 months, can be thrown away. The chances are that’s where you’re infestation came from.
After your pantry has been emptied, wash down the cupboards. Once we’ve finished putting our product into the cracks and crevices, if you’d like to put a shelf paper down to protect your pantry items, please feel free to do so. It’s not necessary, however, since our product will not affect items you have in the pantry.
