Stored Product Insect Pest Control

These pests, such as weevils and other insects in flour, have the ability to survive for long periods on small sediment left behind after cleaning or enclosed within the cracks and crevices in buildings and packaging.  We advise that identification and treatment of stored product pests is always left to the Prokill pest technicians, as rapid multiplication to epidemic levels is possible within a very short period of time.

Import and export laws to different countries are very complex and stringent so as to limit/attempt to eradicate the transference of stored product pests: whether it is Beetles (Coleoptera), Moth (Lepidoptera), Booklice (Psocoptera) or Mite (Acarina), due to the potentially catastrophic detrimental effect they can have on such a wide variety of food products.

The range of commodities that may be affected is quite extensive: cheese, tobacco, wheat, rice, peas, beans, currants, nuts and coffee – in fact nearly all types of cereals, dried fruits, spices, pulses and all processed foods made from this extensive list.

  • Insects – whether dead or alive

  • Tracks, left by beetles – double row of footprints, Larvae – solid line, Moth – footprints
