Pest Control

Pest Control

Pscoids are common but harmless household pests, smaller than a pinhead, that are attracted to dry powdery type foods. They do not like the light and prefer to live in dark, warm, humid places e.g. folds of packaging in food cupboards. They can live for about six months and in that time a female will lay up to 200 eggs.
