The first thing we need to do is identify what type of moth you are dealing with.

There are many different pest moths and each has a specific food source and control strategy.

Two categories of pest moths

Most pest moths follow into two categories and are either stored product pests (pests that eat pantry foods) or clothing pests (pests that eat clothing and other materials made from natural materials).

Stored Product Pests

Stored product pests can ruin food and damage your reputation. Correct identification is critical in order to know what treatment and next steps will look like. Knowing the correct identification will also help us find the food source for the pest. Thorough inspections will help clarify where the problem areas are and how large an infestation might be. Like the Indian Meal Moth pictured here, stored product pest control can include pheromone traps in order to gain control of the population.
