The Indian meal moth is the most common stored product pest for our customers. Clients may see them fluttering lightly around your kitchen or resting on the walls. Another common sight is the larvae climbing across the walls or ceiling in search of a protected area to transform into adults. Indian meal moths can be recognized by the copper colored band covering the last third of their wings. They are scavengers and will feed on a wide range of foods including flour, meal, whole grains, cereal, dried fruit, nuts, beans, crackers, spices, dog food and bird seed.
Procedure - The most important factor is finding the source and removing it. At EHS, a Pest Management Professional will work with you to find and eliminate the breeding sites. We employ a low impact system which combines crack and crevice applications with insect growth regulators and adulticide. This method has provided our clients with guaranteed results.
