Stored Product Pests: Control And Prevention

Stored Product Pests can wreak havoc on your inventory, destroying property and costing you money. They are common in grocery stores, mills, processing plants and bulk storage facilities throughout Boulder, Salt Lake City, and the Pacific Northwest.

These bugs come in a variety of shapes and are typically found in slow-moving products, or inventory that is not moved often. The ideal temperature for their development is at 900 F. They develop poorly around 700 F. -- all the more reason to store products at cooler temperatures.

Practicing good sanitation, properly rotating inventory (first in, first out) and keeping storage below 600 F will help in the fight against Stored Product Pests.
