Thursday, Nov. 6, 2014 - Mason County Journal - Page A-21 MASTER GARDENERS he Master Garden- clinic has been receiving many samples of larvae and adult stored- food insects from homeowners. It is not uncommon for these insects to find their way into our grains, dog food, cereals and other foods stored in pantries By JEANNE and cupboards. REHWALDT Some common pest descriptions and management op- tions follow: Carpet beetle and hide beetle (Dermestidae): These closely related beeries are about one-eighth of an inch long, brown and oval-shaped. They feed on a variety of stored prod- ucts, such as cereals, seeds, spices, tobacco, dried fruits and nuts, dried skins, feathers, and preserved animal prod- ucts. Management: Lo- cate and destroy the source of the infesta- tion. Place infested materials in the freezer for three or four days to kill pests, then discard them. Thoroughly clean shelves and storage areas. Attachments for some types of vacuum cleaners are useful in removing food particles that might have be- come lodged in cracks. Clean surfaces with soap and water. Where freezing and vacuum- ing are not appropriate or adequate, treatment by a qualified profes- sional might be re- quired.
