Yellow Meal Worm Beetle (Tenebriomolitor)
The Beetles are robust, black and nearly 18 mm long, resembling many ground beetles in size, shape and colour. The larvae are distinct, being yellow in colour with a smooth, highly polished hard, cylindrical (wormlike) body about 3 mm thick and up to 28 mm long at maturity.
Meal Worm Beetle Removal
To control these pests, the infested area should be thoroughly cleaned to remove the debris on which the larvae fed (bird nests, food etc). Application of a broad spectrum residual insecticide will normally control the problem.
