Merchant grain beetles are dark brown and have six saw-like teeth on each side of their bodies. They can grow to be one-eighth of an inch long and have very flat bodies.

The merchant grain beetle’s body shape allows it to crawl into packaging to eat, live and have babies.

Merchant grain beetles are found in pantries or in food processing areas or warehouses.

Merchant grain beetles can infest stored food products and can contaminate food.

Merchant Grain Beetles can be found in All 50 States

Discard infested packages. Clean spilled grain and food sources.
