I found these tiny bugs in my kitchen drawers. Anyone know what they are and how to get rid of them? I have washed the drawers and everything in it, then sprayed with Raid. Two days later, I found another one in the drawer.
You have pantry beetle larvae.
Any specific suggestions? I have dumped everything in my pantry, literally. Vacuumed it out and washed every shelf down. Then did the same in the two banks of drawers. What remains in my pantry are canned goods and coffee. The bugs were in adjacent drawers, never saw anything in what I threw out.
You are doing the right thing. Dump everything and clean well. Spray Raid and wait a couple of days.
When you open food: Put boxed food, like bisquick or cereal into a gallon size zipper bag and close tightly. Throw away or recycle the original liner. These bags can be re-used.
Replace all flour, sugar and cornmeal bags with plastic containers with screw-on lids. I found these at Dollar Tree.
For smaller amounts, use tupperware that closes tightly.
Put all molasses, honey, syrup, etc. together on a washable tray. Wash occasionally to remove sticky drip buildup.
I also have these tiny coffee like bugs on my kitchen counter. Last year I bought dog bones from a bulk bin at a pet store. I took everything off my counter and washed with bleach and put out a small bowl with dish soap. I did not see any for maybe a month. Now they are back. Help.
The bugs may be coming into your house via your groceries-the most common reason. Unfortunately, you need to provide the bug's name or a better description for someone to help you remove the bugs.
These could be foundation ants and they come in thru the heat ducts in your home. Go to a hardware store & buy boric acid powder put some at the entire bottom of the sink cabinet and some on the counter top but be careful not to injest it or have it near a family pet. Leave it down for 3 months then sweep up and apply new powder. Good luck.
If these bugs are indeed "weevils" , I got a tip from a friend years ago that has worked for me. Add a few bay leaves to your container of flour. Just as an added precaution, i place a few bay leaves in my cupboards. Really works!!!! Good luck. I also scrub out my cupboards
a few times a year,and throw out expired items.
I have these tiny bugs allso that are hard to see washed with bleach sprayed raid and they die and when look again they coming back , looks like they are seeping up through the counter top, what can i do
I'm currently having the same problem I wish I had an answer. Once I ripped up the wet pressboard from under the sink that's when it started for the last week I've had thousands of tiny bugs I need 2 pairs of reading glasses just to see them. I don't know what to do. Some suggest they are wood mites some clover mites I'm leaning wood mites. My guess is they're searching for water I had thousands on the fridge and thousands in the fridge as soon as they get into the cold it looks like they perish. I spray bleach in bug killer and I'm not sure if it kills them or they drown I can't really tell they're so small. I've bombed them and it does no good. I walk around with a lint roller and that works good but it's like to get the whole area there's so many of them it's like painting your whole wall 6 times a day. I'm one step away from ripping a kitchen out
I have black bugs on the cabinets, occasionally on the counter or around my sink. How can they be killed? I how can I stop them from returning?
Try using diatomaceous earth. It is available from Home Depot or Lowes. Ask for the "food grade" type - which is non toxic and will not harm children or animals. Sprinkle it along the back of your counters and around the baseboards or anywhere you see the bugs coming from. It is very good for deterring all kinds of crawling bugs and you don't have to worry about poisonous fumes, etc. which you get from most insect sprays. Good luck.
