4614 I am infested with cigarette beetles in my Canadian home. My local exterminator sent a specimen off to Montreal for identification and the result came back as a cigarette beetle. After some time, I found the source (banana plant) and eliminated it. How can I get rid of the existing beetles and their egg?. Please help….
You should check all possible food sources for larva and throw out anything suspected to be infested. Sealed boxes (cake mix) could be infested even tho there is no visible entry point. More Information: Penn State University: http://ento.psu.edu/extension/factsheets/cigarette-beetle
