What do pantry pests found in New York homes look like? Pests that are found in your food come in a variety of different species. However, the most common insect found in New York homes is called the Indian meal moth. The Indian meal moth’s wings are typically bronze, copper, or dark grey in color. The adult wingspan ranges from 16 to 20 mm. It can be found in common household foods, including chocolate, dried fruits, bird feed, and dry dog food. Another common pantry pest is the saw-toothed grain beetle, which prefers to infest flour and cereal-type foods. There are many different species of pantry pests; however, each species is hard to identify and locate until their numbers become abundant.
A common question our exterminator team receives is how do these pantry pests get inside our home? Occasionally, pantry pests will make their way into your food from the outdoors. However, most of the time, the original infestation begins at the processing plant, the warehouse, the delivery vehicle, or the retail store. An important fact to remember about pantry pests is that the longer the food is in the retail store, the greater chance it has to obtain pantry pests.
