Can Demon WP kill red flour beetles?

Bought a fairly new rv, great condition. Seem to have a red flour beetle battle on my hands. No signs of food/grain, even in floor ducts. Cleaned, vacuumed every cabinet, floor, surface, nook, cranny and duct. They come back a day later to no avail. Rv is in new location so local infestation/infiltration not relevant. Is it possible they are in the interior paneling?? How do I eradicate these buggers without ripping my rv apart? Help!


Demon WP is not labeled to control pantry pests, although it would likely kill any that contacted it. For the best control of a stored product pest such as the red flour beetle, it is really essential to keep looking for and to locate that initial source to get full control of the infestation. You can then vacuum and clean infested areas, treat cracks and crevices with a residual insecticide, and use traps for the adult insects. Gentrol Complete is a great spray to use since it includes both insecticide and Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) in one product. You can use GreenWay Pantry Patrol Traps for a pheromone trap.
