Fast and effective beetle control for London & the South East

Stored product insects can enter the food chain at any point, during the manufacturing cycle, in warehouses / stores or inside your home. They not only eat the food but breed and complete their full life cycle in it. If you are seeing beetles inside your food cupboard, chances are you have an issue with stored product insects. Removing adult insects is unlikely to get rid of the problem. It is critical to find the source and remove it. If you are still having issues get in contact and our expert technicians can help you find the source and eradicate any beetles in the area.

How do I know if I have a SPI problem?

If you think you’ve spotted signs of a stored product insect infestation, you’re in the right place. This quick guide to SPIs will help you determine if it is in fact mice you are dealing with.

There are a number of tell-tale signs that you have an SPI infestation:

  • Damage to packaging: small holes in packaging are a red flag. 
  • Track marks: you may see tracks in flour from adult beetles.
  • Discolouration: SPIs will contaminate the food and can cause the food to discolour.
  • Sightings: you may see adults or larvae in the food itself. 

The range of stored product insects worldwide is pretty vast. The most common beetles are:

  • Rice weevil
  • Biscuit beetle
  • Grain weevil
  • Confused flour beetle
  • Saw toothed grain beetle
  • Larder beetle

There is also a variety of SPI Moths.

Stored product insects will infest an incredibly wide variety of stored products; flour, rice, oats, cereals, dried fruits, pasta, crackers, nuts, dried herbs, spices, dry dog food, fish food, cake mixes, tobacco and bird seed.

At Beaver we practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This is a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools in a way that minimises economic, health, and environmental risks.

We follow the following 5 steps:

  • Inspection – In line with the CRRU guidance, ensuring a thorough survey is carried out is essential. This will be a full environmental assessment identifying: pest infestations, access points, sources of food, water & harbourage, proofing options, and any external factors which could result in pest infestations i.e overgrown vegetation.
  • Exclusion – Proofing recommendations will always be given by our technicians when identified. 
  • Restriction – Restricting the sources of food, water and harbourage will make your home less appealing to pests and can be an effective way to prevent re-infestation.
  • Destruction – This is what it says, destroying pests that do manage to find their way into your home. We use commercial-grade insecticides safely and in accordance with the label to ensure full control. 
  • Communicate – Communication is perhaps one of the most important parts of the process as a whole. At every stage of this process, our technicians will be communicating their actions and importantly the reasons for their actions to you. Explaining the importance of exclusion and restriction will in the long term benefit you as you will reduce the risk of repeated infestations. It is very important that the recommendations the technicians provide are followed to support you in having a pest-free home.
