Flour Mite Treatment

Flour Mite Treatment and Prevention Specialists for Kent and the South East

A minute, slow-moving, white or pale-brown creature only a barely visible 0.5mm long, with eight legs. A pest of cereals and cereal products especially if they are damp.

Flour Mite also known as Acarus siro. These are  pale greyish white in colour with pink legs. If a person is bitten from a flour mite they might suffer a reaction called Baker's itch, vintage line drawing or engraving illustration.


Burn or otherwise dispose of infested food, remove all debris and thoroughly dry out the areas where the mites occur. The most important treatment is temperature and humidity control. This can be supported by an acaricidal treatment where appropriate. Preferably use a trained pest control professional, with experience of stored product pests.
