The Sawtoothed Grain Beetle easily penetrates packaged cereals, dried fruits, and candies. It also attacks flour, meal, sugar, drugs, dried meat, and tobacco. Discard any packages where penetration has occurred. Vacuum and/or sweep your pantry carefully. Pack your products in air tight sealed containers whenever possible. Carefully inspect your cereals. Try to vacuum between cabinets to remove flour dust and scraps.
