Signs of Stored Product Insects

Many of these insect species are so small that you may not notice a problem at first, but always look out for the following signs of stored product insects:

  • Damage to raw materials and foodstuffs.

  • Emerging adult weevils leave visible exit holes in grains.

  • Infected grain is liable to become warmer which can lead to damp, mould and even grain germination.

  • Insect tracks through floury dust created as adults move from one food source to the next.

  • Webbing produced by the larvae of Warehouse and Mill moths as they feed and spread.

  • Flour and grain beetles can cause discoloration of commodities and make them prone to moulding.

  • These pests can also taint goods with their waste materials.
