How do I know if I have food moths? Discovering small moths in kitchens or moths in kitchen cupboards may be a sign of a food moth infestation.
Although food moths are pests traditionally associated with food factories, bakeries or commercial foodstores, they are now becoming increasingly common in the home, with people often reporting finding tiny moths in their kitchen and wondering what they can be. Other signs that may suggest food moth activity are maggots in kitchens or on kitchen walls and ceilings. These maggots are actually the larval stage of kitchen moths.
There are several types of food moth: Indian Meal Moths (Plodia interpunctella) are a food moth pest often associated with nuts, dried fruit and grains (Indian Meal = maize). Warehouse Moths (Ephestia elutella) and Tropical Warehouse Moths (Ephestia cautella) are primarily associated with stored cereals, nuts and dried fruit, with the former also favouring cocoa and chocolate. Another common species is the Mill Moth or Mediterranean Flour Moth (Ephestia kuehniella).
Why should you eradicate food moths from your property? Food moths sometimes referred to as pantry moths, are the most common pantry pest and will live inside your food stores, consuming flour and other dry foods. It is important to kill these pantry moths as they not only are unsightly, but also unhygienic as the moths could be carrying different bacteria or diseases. A food moth infestation most likely begins from moth eggs laid into the packaging from the production or transportation of food before you purchase.
How do I identify which moth I have? It is not necessary to identify the exact type of food moth as this is not particularly important. Carrying out food moth treatments for a food moth infestation, whichever species you have is very much the same.
