Biscuit beetle (stegobium paniceum)

A recent pest control job in the Essex area found us treating a loft, and the seals around the upstairs windows for this fairly common pest. On inspection of the loft we discovered the owner had been leaving large amounts of mouse bait in trays on the loft floor.
