Let Us Take Care of Your Pantry Pest Problem in Miami

Native Pest Management, a family-owned company founded by third-generation Florida natives, offers complete residential and commercial pantry pest control services to homes and businesses throughout Miami.

During our initial visit, we use long-lasting bait and insect growth regulators inside your attic and behind kitchen outlets to eliminate existing pantry pests. We then strategically place insect monitors and treat the exterior foundation with granular bait to prevent pantry pests from returning.  This comprehensive approach eliminates current pantry pests and keeps new ones out, letting you enjoy a pantry pest-free home.

FAQ

How can I prevent pantry pests?

How do I get rid of pantry pests in my home?

The key control method is ALWAYS finding the source of the pantry beetles in your home and throwing it away outside of the home.

No amount of spraying will resolve this issue if you cannot locate the source that they are feeding on and breeding within.

Since many pantry pests can fly, you may think the source couldn’t possibly be in your pantry since you see so many in a different area of your home. It is important to go through every stored food product as well as pet foods to find where the activity is coming from.

Once the source is removed, the remaining pests in your home will be the adult pantry pests that will be busy looking for a food source to deposit their eggs at.

So that they do not re-infest other food products in your home, make sure all food items are in air-tight, hard plastic containers or jars. Even unopened items may be infested so be sure to check everything.

The remaining pantry pests in your home can actually be removed via vacuum and do not require the use of pesticides to control them. Make sure to also do a deep-cleaning of the cracks and crevices in your home and underneath furniture and appliances as best as possible to remove any potential food particles they may be used to deposit eggs in.

Be sure to dispose of the vacuumed contents outside of the home when you are done.
