The best way to prevent a pantry pest infestation is by practicing good sanitation. If a problem develops, the source of the infestation is usually a forgotten food item in the back of a cabinet or dry pet food and bird seed.
If you do get an infestation, you need to throw away all the impacted food. Vacuum the empty shelves to remove any insects and food particles and store new food products in tightly sealed glass or plastic containers.
Braman will then send one of our highly trained technicians to your home to apply our grain insect removal methods. These include targeted applications of insecticides, insect growth regulators and pheromone traps. It is extremely important to have Braman’s experts manage your grain insect pest control problem because incomplete treatment will allow survivors to re-infest your home.
If a problem is discovered in a commercial setting, a careful product inspection can help identify the specific offending product, or areas where there is spillage or sanitation issues, which can then be removed or resolved. To eliminate the problem, we may use the previous stated methods.
Grain insects can be very difficult to eradicate without professional help. If you suspect that you have a pantry pest problem, contact us right away.
