Booklice can become a nuisance if left unchecked, they can reproduce quickly and lead to infesting and contaminating stored food.
They need high levels of moisture to thrive and won’t survive if the moisture levels are low. They require the presence of mould because that’s their primary source of food and also tend to feed on starch present in book bindings.
Based on the temperature and humidity of the surrounding environment, booklice can take anywhere between 1 month to 3 month to hatch and grow into adulthood.
These pests are usually found in books and old papers. These booklice don’t consume book material, but rather eat any microscopic spores of mould present in the books. That’s one of the reasons why you’ll always find booklice and mould in the same location.
