How to Successfully Treat Your Home for the Pantry Moth
There is a bit of a process to successfully treat your home for the pantry moth. You have three things to consider
- Food source
- Moving Larvae &
- Adult Moths
Food source – systematically working through your pantry, you need to find the food which the moth is growing in. Typically, food containing items such flour, cereals & grains. Opened packets are at high risk. You are looking for a *silky Cobweb inside the packet. If in doubt, throw it out.
Larvae – Larvae can be clearly seen, moving around the pantry. They are looking for a good place to spin a cocoon and become an adult moth. You commonly see the cocoons along the back of the pantry, along the corner of the ceiling etc. They do however sneak into any gap or crack they can find. This makes them hard to locate. They are best treated with the Sumiblast spray
Adult Moths – Commonly known as the Indian meal moth, these small moths are looking for a good food source to lay more eggs. The best way to catch them is with the Pheromone traps
- Empty out your Pantry of all foodstuffs, locating affected food along the way.
- This is a perfect opportunity to wipe the pantry down.
- Open some windows & put on your face mask for the next job, this product is quite stinky. Less is More.
- Lightly apply the Sumiblast Spray along the back walls, under the shelves, corners etc. Along the ceiling edge & any other places, you have seen the cocoons. Note well: They can travel some distance.
- Step away and let it all settle down
- You may now put the unaffected items back into the pantry
- Open up the Pheromone traps & position them around & on top of the pantry. Leave them there to catch any adults still flying around.
