Kim from Clifton, Nj writes,

Can the Pantry Pest Kit be used for "drugstore beetle"?

I'm not sure if flour beetle and drugstore beetle are one and the same. I had a minor infestation in one cupboard inside old pasta boxes and spices (tiny, brown bug). Would this kit be useful? I am still seeing one or two here and there.


The glue traps in the Pantry Pest Kit are not labeled to attract drugstore beetles, however the Cy Kick aerosol would kill any beetle that came into contact with a crevice it was sprayed into. You may want to get a can of the Cy-Kick by itself and Gentrol IGR Aerosol as well to help stop the reproductive cycle of any larva and adults in the infested area.
