How to Get Rid of Stored Food Product Moths

There are several Stored Food Product Moth species that can be found in the home or business. The most common are the Mill Moth or Mediterranean Food Moth (Ephestia kuehniella), Indian Meal Moth (Plodia interpunctella), Warehouse Moth (Ephestia elutella) and the Tropical Warehouse Moth (Ephestia cautella). These moth insects can be a major pest of food manufacturing premises as well as being a nuisance pest in a household or in a catering business, as they can contaminate a wide range of dried stored food products including flour, cereals, grain, fruits, nuts and cocoa beans etc.

Food Moths known also as Pantry Moths are most likely to be found in an area where there is poor housekeeping or where there is old food debris, which will encourage these insect pests to live and breed. In kitchens, attention should be paid to more inaccessible sites such as under and behind cookers, fridges, cupboards and kitchen plynths etc. Stored Food Product Moths can also be regularly found in old food stocks of dried foods such as flour and cereal products.

Mill Moth or Meditarranean Food Moth (Ephestia kuehniella) - The adult moth has distinctive grey fore wings and whitish hind wings. This moth is endemic to the UK and prefers cereal products. It is a major pest in flour factories as well as being regularly found in supermarkets and bakeries.

Indian Meal Moth (Plodia interpunctella) is very often found in imported foods such as peanuts, cocoa beans and dried fruits. The adult moths are creamy in colour at the front of the wings and reddish brown at the back, making easy identification. These moths can survive cold winters and can cause serious damage to processed foods.

Warehouse Moth (Ephestia elutella) - The adult moth is 8-10mm long and has pale buff coloured wings with a variable banded pattern. The damage caused to foodstuffs is by the larval stage only, which is up to 12mm in length and whitish-brown in colour.

Tropical Warehouse Moth (Ephestia cautella) - Very similar to the Warehouse Moth but may not survive severe winters in unheated warehouses as they need warmer conditions to survive.

All of these Stored Food Product Moths can be found in food factories, warehouses, supermarkets and kitchens of the home or business and it is only with a combination of Stored Food Product Moth Pest Control Products will you fully eliminate and stop an infestation of food or pantry moths.
