Indian Meal Moth
This moth has distinctive dual coloured wings that are light at the front and dark at the rear. They are often found in domestic kitchens (where dried foods are stored), and also in commercial premises that store and /or use dried food products.
- Check all dried food packets to find the source of the infestation. i.e. Check for visible damage to packets and webbing throughout the food.
- Destroy all contaminated food to prevent the infestation from spreading to other foods.
- Wherever possible place all dried foods in sealed containers.
- Where an extended infestation has developed with numerous webbing/nests found throughout shelving and ceilings, thorough cleaning is required to remove these nests. It is often difficult to remove all the eggs (if there are in cracks and crevices) and so it may be necessary to spray with an insecticide to fully destroy their lifecycle.
