Psocids (booklice)

Description

  • Also known as booklice
  • 1 - 1.5 mm in length
  • Generally greyish in colour
  • Squashy soft appearance

Facts about psocids

  • They feed on yeast, moulds, mildews and algae
  • Live in damp humid conditions
  • Can produce a tapping noise most clearly heard on paper
  • Sometimes found in large numbers in dried food cereals

Control

  • Decrease humidity by drying out affected areas.
  • Remove food source.
  • Treat with sprays/powders.

We do not treat psocids. You can find other professionals that are able to treat an infestation online or in a local directory. Preparation treatments are available from larger D.I.Y stores for self-treatment. Always read the label first.
