Pantry Pest Control

A pantry pest is any type of insect, including several different beetles and moths that, true to name infests grains and other stored products, usually found in kitchen pantries. Most of these pests are very small, making it difficult to detect until you go to use your flour to make a cake and see these pests crawling around.
