To kill insects in a package that you intend to throw out, place the package in an oven at 125 to 140°F and heat for 30 minutes to fully penetrate the package. Other means of destroying the pests is to place the package in a freezer at -20°F for a week, or spray with an insecticide. Only then should you discard the infested package. This will keep the pest from spreading.

Larder Beetle Facts Description & Biology Larder Beetles, as their name implies, prefer meat or meat by-products. This could be decomposing animal, poultry, insect or other non-plant materials. Mounted animals may also become infested. However, Larder Beetles can survive on other organic materials too. Infestations in homes most likely come from infested dry dog and cat food or bird feed. It is not unusual to find new infestations where rat or mouse baits have been used. The beetles can infest the baits and also the vermin carcasses. They will also feed on accumulations of dead cluster flies. Grease from food preparation and cooking also attracts Larder Beetles. Any food that is not in a tight container, and has not been used for a month or more, should be checked for infestation whenever beetles or larvae are found. The adult larder beetle is about 3/8 inch long, black with a lighter stripe across the middle on which there are six small black spots. A full grown larva is about 5/8 inch long, somewhat fuzzy, with two distinct spines on top of the back end that curve backward. When mature, the larvae can become even more destructive by chewing holes into wood, in which they pupate.
