How we get rid of pantry moths > Professional Pantry Moths Treatment
- Locate all sites of infestation
- Discard all infested food from cupboards
- Remove food from cupboards and treat surfaces
- Spray any adult moths disturbed during the treatment
- Provide sticky pheromone traps to deal with any moths flying in
As with all our pest treatments we start with a thorough inspection to fully understand the nature of the problem. Finding all the infested food is the key step in eliminating the problem – they can infest a wide range of dried foods, including petfood and even rodent bait!
After throwing out the infested food, treating the surfaces in food storage areas will ensure any eggs and larvae that have been missed and any adults that land will be eliminated.
In addition to the various prevention steps (see below), the use of pheromone sticky traps to catch any new adult moths that fly in, help provide long term protection.
