How to Get Rid of Pantry Pests

Pests are never welcome in our homes. We don’t want them in our bedrooms, living rooms, or anywhere else. But, it is especially important to keep pantry pests under control. What are pantry pests? They are the pests that love to live in and destroy pantries.

Pantry pests are a huge nuisance. They can spread disease, destroy food, and ruin containers. Keep reading to learn more about pantry pests and how to keep them from your Waldorf, MD home. You should also contact Barefoot Pest Control to see what we can do for you.


What are pantry pests?

There are a wide variety of pantry pests. Really, any pest who lives in your pantry is a pantry pest. There are some pests, however, that are more likely to be attracted to your pantry. These include


  • Mice and rodents: Mice and all other types of rodents love to look for food in our pantries. Their sharp teeth make it easy for them to eat through many types of containers. Rodents will leave their droppings to contaminate our food as they eat. You definitely don’t want them in your pantry.
  • Fruit flies: Fruit flies are often not associated with pantries. These annoying little pests are found wherever there are old fruit and vegetables. So, if you store veggies or fruit in your pantry, you should take steps to remove fruit flies.
  • Ants: Ants are a huge problem anywhere there is food. Ants love sweet foods the most, but they will happily invade any open food containers. Once ants find your pantry they can be extremely hard to remove.
  • Cockroaches: Cockroaches can live all over our homes. But, they can often be found in pantries because they get in our houses by hitchhiking in cardboard food containers and produce bags.


How to get rid of pantry pests?

Any time you notice pests in your pantry, you will want to take immediate steps to remove them. Pests can cause a lot of damage, health problems, and force you to buy all new food. No one wants that. Here are a few ways to keep your pantry pest-free.


  1. Never put unsealed food in your pantry. Pantries are not the place for open food containers. It is much easier for pests to find the food unobserved, which can cause a huge infestation before you realize it. We recommend opting for non-toxic plastic containers. Mice and other rodents can gnaw through cardboard, mesh, and paper.
  2. Natural deterrents may work for small problems. Some people like to use “all-natural” deterrents. Common substances include vinegar, salt, and pepper. Leaving containers of these items in your pantry may deter ants or fruit flies. Just remember that these are not great solutions for a bad pantry pest problem.
  3. Contact Barefoot Pest Control. For the Waldorf, MD area, there is no better company for pest control. We provide same-day service within four hours at no extra charge. Plus, we offer a free, zero-obligation inspection and estimate. For the best in pantry pest extermination, contact Barefoot Pest Control today.
