Insects destructive to food in the home
"The continued loss of foods in the home due to the work of various household insects amounts to willful waste. When there is a food shortage it is just as important to protect available supplies from loss by insects as it is to produce more food. Millions of dollars worth of foods in American homes are destroyed every year by insects, due largely to food spoilage. These losses can and must be prevented, and this report has been prepared to help Missouri housewives reduce such losses in their homes. Of the various pests attacking food in the home, cockroaches, ants, Indian meal moth, flour beetles, bean weevils, flies, meat skippers, larder beetles, cheese mites, vinegar gnats, and a few others are most important."--Page 1.
