Pantry Pest Prevention for YOUR BUSINESS

Can You Prevent Pantry Pests Naturally?

Different pantry pest species have different preferences, but in general you’ll likely find them infesting whole grains, flour, rice, corn, beans, dried fruit, seeds, pet food, or other dried goods. Here are a few tips for preventing pantry pests:
  1. Check your groceries: Check packaging for signs of damage at the store, and again before you stock your pantry.
  2. Ward off pantry pests with bay leaves: Place a bay leaf inside canisters containing dry goods like flour or rice – many pantry beetles are repelled by them.
  3. Use airtight containers: Always store food and baking ingredients securely, ideally in airtight containers.
  4. Look at expiration dates: If ingredients have been in the pantry for a year or two and they’re past their expiration dates, toss them out!
  5. Properly store seasonal items: If you don’t anticipate using an ingredient anytime soon, make sure it’s stored in an airtight container – and if you have somewhere else to store it besides the pantry, consider doing that.
