Saw-Toothed Beetles


Saw toothed beetles are usually around 2.5-3 mm long and their bodies are flat. There are six different projections on each side of their bodies in the back of their head. These different projections give this particular beetle its name. You would need a magnifying glass to see them.


Saw toothed beetles are not attracted to light and they don't fly. Its flat body allows it to enter in tiny crack and infest in broke grains. It can also enter its way into homes and businesses. They feed on grains, flour, pet food and birdseed.

Infestation and Control

You can usually identify an infestation when you notice these beetles in your pantry feeding on products or on open surfaces such as counters of shelves. Cleaning out cabinets and making sure every package in your pantry is closed is a good prevention method. Make sure all pet food and birdseed is stored properly. Insecticide application is also extremely important. Call Critter Control of Seattle for beetle control to help with your saw toothed beetle infestation today!
