If you read through our MEAL MOTH CONTROL article, you’ll learn that what you’ve got are undoubtedly Meal Moths. These will commonly infest kitchens and pantries and even if everything is removed like when someone moves out of the home, these moths will persist.
And that’s because their pupae will no doubt still be around and developing. So my guess is the previous residents left this problem and now it’s your’s to handle. The good news is you can win this battle yourself with the right products and application methods which are aptly explained in our article.
For starters, you’ll need to remove everything from the cabinets and pantry. Once removed, you’ll need to treat all cracks and crevices with DFORCE AEROSOL. Be thorough and don’t put anything away for at least 4 hours. And make sure anything you do store is bug free. Since you’ve had some activity we can’t rule out that something you brought into the home is the source of the moths and going through all your stored food products is the only way to insure this isn’t the case.
Next, set out some MEAL MOTH TRAPS. These will help by capturing any that hatch as adults and as our article explains, the less adults you have in the home, the less reproduction will be going on.
