what do indian meal moths prey on the most? vegetables, dried food products…etc? And, can they bite or sting!? I am nervous for my 4 year old! Do they prefer lighted areas of dark areas!?
If you read our MEAL MOTH CONTROL ARTICLE, you’ll learn this insect feeds as a larvae stage and not as an adult. That means the little white larvae are in boxes of food like cereal, pasta, rice, etc. feeding and only emerge after they get their fill and are ready to molt and emerge as an adult. So to answer your questions and concerns; you and your child have nothing to worry about from the adults you see flying. They won’t bite you or your baby. But if you want them gone, you’ll need to set out some MOTH TRAPS to help collect the foraging adults. Next, you’ll need to locate the infested food and get that removed and if needed, you may even have to treat with some of the products we have listed in our article.
