Normally, it is the pantry area that is used for breeding. However, if that space is not available, the larder beetle will use the ceiling, walls, behind appliances, or various other voids in the structure. Adults usually do not like light sources and avoid them when mating or egg laying. For the larder beetle, it is the larvae that causes the most damage and contamination to stored foods, they bore into food sources and “plug” the entrance so they can molt.
