How Do Pantry Pests Get in Your Home?

The pests often get into your pantry’s food in a number of ways. Some come in from the outside your home through cracks and crevices, but mostly, believe it or not, most of these pests are actually brought into your home in the very food products you are purchasing. The origin of the infestation most likely occurred at the food processing plant, the warehouse, delivery truck, or retail store. The longer the packaged food lingers in any of these locations, the most likely infestation can happen.

Pantry Moth & Pest Life Cycles

The beetles and moths that are contaminating your food have four life cycles they include; egg, larva, pupa, and adult. At any stage these insects can be ever present in your pantry’s food supply, but the eggs are generally too tiny to be seen. When these insects become larva, they are at their most destructive phase, but by adulthood is when they are typically noticed.
