Drugstore Beetles


Drugstore beetles are around 2-3.5 mm in length and are oval-shaped and brown in color. They have wing covers that are lined with parallel rows or punctures. Adult beetles can fly and are attracted to light.


Drugstore beetles infest multiple food material such as, sugar, grains and spices. They also infest many nonfood products including, old books, leather and fur. Because they can be a nuisance to so many different materials they can often be a problem in the home.

Entry and Damage

Drug store beetles are easy to identify if there is an infestation. You can see them buzzing around or simply resting on surfaces. Other signs you may notice are holes in clothing, books or in food packaging. If not treated immediately, the infestation will get worse and move to other areas of your home.
