Drugstore beetle (Stegobium paniceum), coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The drugstore beetle is a pest of stored products, including prescription drugs. A symbiotic yeast living in its gut enables the beetle to supplement its diet and therefore live on foods that are poor in nutrients, such as pharmaceutical drugs.
