Practical pest preventive practices for the pantry

Prevention is the most important thing in combatting pests in your cabinets and pantry. Pests in the pantry often mean that there are one or more stored food items that have become infested and, left unattended, the infestation may spread to other stored food items. When it comes to pest problems in the home, the kitchen can be a hot spot as there are three requirements for pests — food, water, and places to hide (shelter).
