The Drugstore beetle, also known as the Bread beetle or Biscuit beetle, is a tiny, brown beetle that can be found infesting a wide variety of products. They have a worldwide distribution and can be more commonly found in warmer climates.

The most effective method of ridding your home of these pests is to try and discover the source of the infestation. Bird nests are the main source for these beetles to reside.

These beetles feed on prescription drugs as well as flours, dry mixes, breads, cookies, chocolates and other sweets, and spices. Non-food material includes wool, hair, leather, horn, and museum specimens.
