Signs of Stored Product Insects

Stored product insects are so small that you may not notice a problem at first, but always look out for the following tell-tale signs that indicate these pests’ presence in your premises. They are commonly found in food storage areas, beams, windowsills, food processing machinery, packaging and food products.

  • Damage - can be found on raw materials and foodstuffs

  • Live or dead weevils - emerging and leaving visible exit holes in grains

  • Infected grain - will appear as damp, mouldy and even grain germination when it is warmer

  • Floury dust - created as adults move from one food source to the next

  • Moulded goods - insects such as flour and grain beetles can cause discoloration of goods and make them prone to moulding

  • Holes in packaging - inspect for any cracks and gaps between the packaging
