Indoor Moth Identification

Pantry Moths
Pantry Moths, or Indian Meal Moths, infest dried fruits and grain products including rice, pastas, flour, beans, etc. Adults are about ½-inch long and fly. Moth maggots can eat into unopened packaging. Only sealed glass or plastic containers can keep these predators out. Larvae leave white silken cocoons and cocoon webbing. Prior to treatment, customers must discard or freeze all grain products.

Clothing Moths
Shiny white larvae eat and destroy fabrics and furs. The adults are white, about a half inch long, and flee from light. All wool and fur clothing will need to be dry-cleaned before treatment.
