Tribolium confusm, Confused Flour Beetle, Red Rust Flour Beetle


These beetle are easily confused as both are 3-4mm in length and a similar colour. They can be identified based on the length and amount of clubs on  the antenna and the Confused Flour Beetles are slightly longer. The adults are very active and females lay an average of 450 eggs and the larvae attack stored products such as pasta, grains, chocolate, nuts and many more.
