Moth Control Services
Schopen Pest Solutions, based in McHenry, IL, can assist you in eliminating Indian Meal Moths if you live within the Northern Illinois or Southeastern Wisconsin area. This insect is a troublesome pantry pest. Although small, these moths are resourceful and can be very hard to get rid of once you have them in your kitchen area or other food storage space. They are flying insects that feed on everything from grains to dog food and candy. It’s easy for them to get into containers and they contaminate the food once inside. These bugs spread quickly, so treating thoroughly for the infestation is important to getting them out of your home for good.
Our pest control team has handled Indian Meal Moth problems for many satisfied homeowners in the Northern Illinois and the Southeastern Wisconsin region. They are a common problem, but when addressed properly, can be eliminated quickly. Often, when people try to treat for these pests themselves, they are not able to get rid of them. This particular moth lays eggs everywhere and breed quickly. We understand the best methods for getting rid of these insects and can help you restore order to your kitchen area again!
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 in the kitchen or pantry area. They are small, tannish in color 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. You might see “worms” crawling on the walls. These are larvae. 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 quickly is important if you want to get things under control fast.
