How Do I Know If I Have A Pantry Moth Infestation?
Detecting a pantry moth infestation early is crucial to prevent it from spreading and causing more significant problems. Here are some signs to look for if you suspect a pantry moth infestation:
- Moth Sightings: The most obvious sign is the presence of adult moths in your kitchen or pantry area. These moths are usually small and may have a brownish or grayish color.
- Larvae: Check your food items for small, white or cream-colored larvae or caterpillars. They may be crawling on the surface of food packaging or inside food containers.
- Webbing: Pantry moths often leave behind silk webbing in food packages or on shelves. This webbing is a result of their larvae spinning cocoons.
- Damage to Food Packaging: Look for small holes or chewed-through packaging on items like flour, cereal, grains, pasta, nuts, and other dry goods. Pantry moth larvae feed on these products.
- Cocoons: Pantry moth larvae create small, cocoon-like structures in corners, crevices, or on the walls of your pantry or kitchen. These cocoons are typically brown and can be a sign of an infestation.
- Pupae: As larvae mature, they transform into pupae, which are often found in hidden areas like cracks and corners.
- Strange Odor: An unusual, musty odor in your pantry area can sometimes be a sign of an infestation.

Protect Your Blissful Kitchen
Hotter weather and longer Summers mean more frequent infestations in your kitchen, keep the unwanted pests out of your home!
My traps haven’t caught any moths. What do I do?
To begin, keep in mind that the absence of moths in the trap does not always indicate an absence of moths within your home. These clever little creatures excel at the game of hide and seek, potentially lurking in concealed corners or deep within your kitchen.
Ensure that you have removed the protective sheet from the adhesive in the trap. In case it has skipped your eye. Dispose of items that are particularly infested. Vacuum your pantry and kitchen, wipe the infested area with a straightforward cleaning solution.
Verify the placement of your traps. The most effective locations for these traps are inside or near the affected areas, preferably within your pantry storage or wherever you have observed the most damage in your kitchen. To maximize their effectiveness, position one trap high on the shelf and another one down low on the table or lower shelf, as these cunning intruders tend to favor those areas.
However, it is also plausible that you may be dealing with a different moth species, or the moths could be in a different stage of their lifecycle that is not attracted to the pheromones (such as larvae). Conducting a thorough inspection of the area can assist in clarifying the situation.
Patience and persistence are of the essence. If you keep having difficulty do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com for further support.
How to differentiate between a pantry moth and a clothing moth?
The first of these intruders, known as the clothes moth, could be considered a discerning fashion critic. They possess a distinct preference for natural fibers such as wool, silk, fur, and feathers.
Typically, you'll discover them merrily cavorting in your wardrobe, indulging in your beloved woolen sweaters or treasured silk scarves. They don't show much interest in your kitchen provisions.
Conversely, the pantry moth, officially recognized as the Indian meal moth, is a culinary enthusiast but often in the wrong location. They make appearances in your kitchen or wherever you stash your food supplies. Their culinary preferences lean toward grains, cereals, nuts, dried fruits, and an array of other stored edibles. They steer clear of your clothing and concentrate on pilfering your pantry.
In terms of appearance, there's a noticeable contrast. Clothes moths tend to be smaller, measuring roughly half an inch, and come in varying shades of light gold or brownish tones. On the contrary, pantry moths are a bit larger, boasting a wingspan of around 5/8 of an inch, and feature a distinctive reddish-brown coloring on the outer edges of their wings.
Now that you possess this knowledge, you're better prepared to tackle these unwelcome guests.
Did any person or your pet touch the glue on the trap? How to get it off?
Do not worry or panic. Our traps are non-toxic. If you happen to get some glue on your hands, resist the urge to rub or scratch to avoid spreading the adhesive. You will need to summon a common household item: Vegetable Oil.
Apply the oil generously to the sticky area and gently rub it in. The oil should start to dissolve the adhesive. After a couple of minutes, wipe it off with a warm soapy cloth, then rinse with warm water. Repeat the process if necessary.
Patience is key in this operation, much like in our battle against clothing moths. Be gentle with your skin and give it time.
In the future, please handle the traps by the edges to avoid direct contact with the adhesive.
