Drugstore/Cigarette Beetles 101

The Drugstore and Cigarette Beetles got their name because of the damage that they did to stored tobacco many years ago. These beetles are oval shaped and their bodies are colored in different hues of brown. They most often grow to be about 1/16-1/8 inches long and have grooving patterns on their wings. These two species feed on all different types of things such as flour, spices, and tobacco and are considered the most common stored product pests in homes and businesses. These beetles do not bite and don’t pose much danger to humans. Although they are not dangerous, an infestation could become extremely overwhelmingly especially because they are quick to reproduce. A female can lay up to 100 eggs in a just a couple of weeks. These pests are normally found in cupboards or other areas where there is something they can feed on. If you have an infestation, you want to be sure that you contact a pest technician immediately so that they can come up with a treatment plan to eliminate them.

Signs of an Infestation

If you have a Drugstore and Cigarette Beetle infestation, the number one thing you will see is an increased amount of these pests in your home. They most often hang around areas that have packaged foods, such as in cupboards. One way you can tell if you have an infestation is to take out spices or another item and place it in a clear plastic bag before putting it back in the cupboard. After a couple weeks check the bag to see if there are multiple beetles in there. If there are, it is likely that you have an infestation. The best thing that you can do if you have an infestation is to contact a pest technician who will be able to remove the beetles from your home quickly and effectively.
