Furniture Beetles in Kitchen Pantry

We found some furniture beetles inside an opened bag of old cat food. They were boring through the pellets. I looked thoroughly for other damage and found approx 30 beetle holes in the drywall ceiling of the pantry. No other damage anywhere in the house. What product(s) or suggestions would you recommend?


We would recommend using D-Force HPX in the pantry.  You should apply the product in all cracks and crevices around baseboards and on on the edges of shelves in the pantry.  Then, you should treat inside the holes in the drywall that the beetles bored.  Also, you should obviously discard of any food that was contaminated from the beetles.
