I have an insane pantry moth issue that has been ongoing for months. I have replaced everything in the pantry with high end sealable Tupperware, set up dr killington traps everywhere, sprayed different bug sprays, had an exterminator come. I can never find the source and a day doesn’t go by that I don’t see at least 3 of these annoying things. Please help! Is there something I can do or a product that is a god send for this? Attaching a close up photo I got of one of the little buggers. Thanks in advance for any help!

We had the same issue.

Took a year to get rid of them.

No pest guy as they said we could the same as them.

You have to take EVERYTHING out of the cupboards and wash them out and wipe down EVERYTHING in the cabinets.

Also you will likely have to throw out anything packaged as the critters can get in mfr packaging.

Traps work great but be careful having too many of them too close together.

We use food grade glass storage jars w/screw tight lids. The other containers we use are Neoflam.

Other folks i talked with had issues with tupperware containers.

Be persistent and keep ALL dry goods in high quality air tight containers.

Good luck.
