Any food with obvious signs of infestation should be considered contaminated and thrown out. This includes pet food. Sawtoothed grain beetles do not carry diseases, but the damage they do to stored products and grains create harborage for fungi and bacterium.
Several types of weevils, including the rice, granary, maize and bean/pea weevils, can be encountered in your home and businesses. They are all pests of whole grain foods such as nuts, corn, flour, pasta, beans, cereals, fruits and seeds. If you have these in your pantry, contact us for help.
