Understanding Warehouse Beetles

Appearance

Commonly grouped together with other beetle species, warehouse beetles are closely related to carpet beetles. In fact, both pests have a similar appearance, being oval in shape and brown to black in color.

Damage and Diet

The larval stage of this beetle causes the bulk of the destruction. Warehouse beetle larvae are responsible for damaging many stored goods found in kitchen pantries.

From grains and cereals to pet food and candy, the pests feed on a variety of household items. Their eating habits contribute to loss of product and can also cause food contamination.
