Indian Meal Moth

The Indian Meal Moth is probably the most common stored products pest found in a home and in grocery stores. Adults with wings spread are about 5/8 to 3/4 of an inch. Wings are pale gray on the front third and reddish brown with copper luster on the back two thirds. Indian Meal Moths typically come from grain products that were not processed properly. The larva feed on products such as bird seed, powdered milk, dog/cat or most any pet food, crackers, cereals, flour, cake mixes, candy, nuts, chocolate, dried flowers, dried fruits and virtually all other dried foods around the home.
