From Pantrypest.com:

Inspect and Discard: First investigate the infested items and discard them. ...
Clean and Vacuum: Vacuum and clean shelves thoroughly. ...
Use Pheromone Traps: These traps have a sex pheromone in order to catch and trap male drugstore beetles.

From my entomologist husband:
Throw out ALL opened and UNOPENED (MOST PANTRY BUGS COME HOME FROM THE STORE WITH YOU!!!) flours, grains, cereals, nuts etc.
Clean the entire pantry to kill eggs.
In the future-place every new flour, cereal, nuts, etc., in the freezer for 24 hours-this will kill all bugs and their eggs inside the packages. Place all frozen and then opened cereals, etc., in storage bags, jars, plastic containers, etc.
