Several species of Beetles infest packages of whole grain and grain products, the most common being the Saw-Toothed Grain Beetle and the Weevil.

A wide variety of foods may be infested, including flour, cereal, dried fruits, dehydrated vegetables, shelled nuts, chocolate, spices, candies, pet foods, and bird seed. Eggs, larvae, pupae, and adults of the beetles may occur in infested foods.
