Recognizing the grain beetle
The grain beetle is characterized by the six tooth-shaped appendages on its thorax, which earn it the name “sawtoothed grain beetle.” This beetle is brown with shades of rust. Small and flat, it infiltrates the smallest spaces without difficulty. In your pantry, it attacks food made from grains: pasta, bread, cereal, etc. The grain beetle is particularly harmful, since it contaminates all the food with which it comes into contact and makes it unfit for consumption.
