If you ever had whitish worms crawling up walls and across the ceiling in a kitchen or food storage area, chances were excellent they were indianmeal moth larvae, one of the more common stored product pests. Often an infestation is discovered when the full grown larvae (about 1/2 inch) leave their food source and wander around looking for places to pupate.
Grain moth larvae can be found in any type of grain, nut,
fruit or cereal product.
Infested products can include bird seed, peanuts, pecans, dog food, candy, macaroni, breakfast cereal, corn meal, dried beans, etc. It is common to find beetles and weevils in the same infested food as the moth larvae.
GRAIN MOTH CONTROL
Eliminate the source. All potential sources of food
for the moths should be either discarded, cooked, frozen, or placed inside
an air tight container (ziplock bags are not airtight).
