There are different pest control products that can be used in homes,
restaurants, warehouses to eliminate and control cigarette beetles.
Options include long term, odorless Suspend SC, Methoprene insect growth
regulators and crack and crevice aerosols. Mild beetle problems can often
be controlled by using just one of these items. Severe or reoccurring
infestations of cigarette beetles might require a combination of products.
Many people prefer to simply use an odorless product that will have multiple
uses around the home. Suspend SC has no smell and
can safely be sprayed on floors, carpets, furniture, on baseboards and in
cabinets or closets. When applying initial application, tank mix Suspend
SC with an IGR (one or two ounces will probably do for a
home) to give you the one-two punch of insecticide beetle kill and 3 to 6 months
control of immature insect larvae.
In tobacco warehouses and other large commercial
operations, the cigarette beetle infestations can sometimes be quite severe or
on-going due to products being stored.
Professional pheromone traps for cigarette beetles are
available. X Lure offers a complete line of
professional pheromone traps.
