Sawtoothed Grain Beetles


  • The sawtooth name come from the tiny projections behind the head that create a saw like appearance
  • These beetles may lay dormant over the window, only to reemerge in the spring
  • These beetles usually require chemical treatment to remove effectively

The sawtoothed grain beetle is a major pest of food products within the home and commercial spaces. It is one of the few beetles that can not fly. The sawtoothed grain beetle lays eggs in ground flours, such as flour which the larvae feeds upon. If you see these beetles within your home please consult a pest control expert immediately. Creating a clean environment devoid of food will help eliminate the infestation.

I just moved to the area and called Horizons for a quote. The office staff were very helpful in assessing my needs and getting me set up with an appointment. Horizons Professional Pest Control sent a technician the same day to take care of my problem. My technician, Chad, was very knowledgable and took so much time talking to me about what I needed and telling me how he was going to address those needs. So happy with my choice.
