Indian Meal Moth Control & Treatments
Recognizing the Indian meal moth
Present across Canada, this Indian meal moth, which can reach about a dozen millimeters, finds shelter in warehouses, food stores, restaurants, and residential environments. It can be identified by its bicoloured wings: grey on the back and tinged with reddish-brown on the ends. The presence of Indian meal moths can also be guessed from the strands of silk that they leave in places where dried food is stored. This insect has the ability to chew through food packaging, which can give you another clue that your kitchen is infested.
