The following photographs show
the commonest psocids found in British homes.
|Trogium pulsatorium female. Trogium is found most often in old slightly damp houses, it reproduces slowly and is rarely of any annoyance.||
Lepinotus patruelis female above male below. Lepinotus is found in grain stores and can be found in kitchens and other food storage areas. Although occasionally a minor problem in commercial grain stores, it is usually of little pest significance.
Liposcelis bostrychophila is the predominant psocid pest of domestic kitchens in the UK.
