Confused Flour Beetle

The confused flour beetle (Tribolium confusum) is one of the more common pests found infesting food in grocery stores and homes in the northern US. Unlike the granary weevil which only infests whole grain, the confused flour beetle is more of a general feeder. It will feed upon processed foods like flour, spices, shelled nuts, and dried fruits. Adult flour beetles are small, (1/8 inch long, reddish-brown) insects with distinct antennae that end in a four-segmented club. Full-grown larvae are segmented, yellowish white, and about the same size as the adults. These larvae are easily identified from others that infest food by a dark, two-pointed modification of the last body segment. If you suspect you have an infestation of flour beetles or other stored food insects, contact us @ 1-800-525-8084 for inspection, consultation, and treatment of your home.
