Effective Methods to Get Rid of Beetles
The most effective method of ridding a home of moths and beetles is to try to discover the source of the infestation. Drugstore beetles often enter a home in bulk items like birdseed, grass seed, or dry pet food, where several generations of beetles can develop unnoticed until some of the adults eventually leave to infest new locations.
Telltale signs of infested items are shot-like holes puncturing the outside packaging of food items and pockmarking solid items like crackers and pasta, as well as loose powder at the bottom of storage bags. While adult beetles do not feed, they are adept at chewing holes.
Once inside the home, the adult beetles can spread to other food sources, particularly grains, flour, rice, seeds, beans, pasta, cereals, and spices. While they are highly adept at chewing out of cardboard, foil, and plastic film to escape the package in which they have undergone metamorphosis to adults, they are somewhat less likely to eat into a sealed, airtight foil or plastic bag.
Ideally, all open packages should be discarded in an infested home; however, it is also effective to freeze items if the entire contents can be brought below -20 C (-4 F).
Food storage areas like pantries and cabinets need to be vacuumed thoroughly, including the crevices between floorboards, the corners of cabinets, and areas where mice may have hoarded things like dry dog food.
A bird nest within a home can also provide a haven for drugstore beetles, and a professional may need to be consulted to address this.
Lowering home humidity levels can be helpful as well. While the use of chemical insecticides may be undesirable in food storage areas, diatomaceous earth can be useful sprinkled in corners or even mixed into bird seed (diatomaceous earth is edible, but inhaling it should be avoided).

“They were so nice and got the job done. After one spray and I can already tell the huge difference it made on my property. I now have them come once a month. The men were very great at explaining everything that needed to be done and the whole team was very friendly. I now finally have my plants back. Extremely happy!”
