Indian Meal Moth
This moth is often called the ‘millers moth’ and can be found flying around the house in most rooms, but primarily in the kitchen and pantry. It is one of the easiest stored insects to identify because the adults have a colorful appearance and the larvae a yellowish color and leave a silken webbing trail wherever they crawl. The newly emerged adults are bicolored with copper & tan wings.
This pantry pest feeds most commonly on grain products such as flour, cereal, bird seed, pet food and nuts and dried fruits as well. It is our recommendation that you inspect all food products and dispose of infested or questionable items, clean the cabinets with a good cleaner and install & utilize one of our Indian Meal Moth Pheromone Traps to control this pest.
Webbing Clothes Moth
Clothes Moths and other fabric pest moths have become a problem all over the United States. These moths are becoming a pest in homes, warehouses, retail stores, gift shops, museums and manufacturing facilities. However, the increased incidence of fabric pest infestations may not solely lie with the loss of certain insecticides. Other factors that come into play are:
- A dramatic increase in imported susceptible goods, such as Oriental carpets, home furnishings, decorative items, clothing and antiques.
- Long term and temporary storage of household goods as the populace moves more frequently from one part of the country to another.
- An increasingly affluent society where both parents work and neglect the home or leave household cleaning in the hands of domestic workers. Often in areas of the home such as attics, closets, dressers and storage areas in crawl spaces and garages are rarely inspected or cleaned.
- The significant increase in overseas travel by business persons and tourists from all points of the globe.
- The virtual lack of long-term, residual chemical alternatives for the insecticides which have been removed from use in the US
For proper control clean all fabric items, vacuum all areas of closets and storage areas and utilize our Webbing Clothes Moth Pheromone Traps.
