Signs of an Indian Meal Moth Infestation
The first sign most people experience when their home is infested with Indian Meal Moths is seeing these insects flying around in the kitchen or pantry area. They are small and look like regular moths. If you see one pantry moth, there are likely to be many more. If they have not yet all become adults, they are in the form of eggs in your dry goods. These moths are extremely persistent and can get into containers that most insects would not be able to penetrate. This makes it very hard to protect your food from them once they are established.
Unchecked pantry moth infestations can be very expensive since, once they are established in your home, they get into many food containers and contaminate the contents. Repeatedly throwing out full boxes of cereal, bags of dog food, or bags of flour can add up to a large expense quickly, and the problem will continue to get larger the more time passes. Addressing an Indian Meal Moth infestation fast is important if you want to get things under control fast.
