Preserve your commodity
The coffee beetle (Araecerus fasciculatus) is a typical storage pest, which spreads easily during the relatively long periods of storage. Infested coffee beans show circular holes. Coffee may also be infested with the warehouse beetle (Trogoderma variabile).
Fumigation is generally carried out in the countries of origin. Fumigation chemicals are often incorrectly applied to the product and residues with a carbide-like odor are left on the product, which may taint the coffee.
The b-Cat Controlled Atmosphere technique effectively controls the insects, does not use toxic chemicals, does not leave any residues and does not affect the quality of the product in any way.
Common commodity feeders:
- Drugstore beetle (Stegobium paniceum)
- Coffee bean beetle (Areacerus fasciculatus)
- Cockroaches (Family: Blattodea)
- Tropical warehouse moth (Ephestia cautella)
- Warehouse beetle (Trogoderma variabile)
