What is a Meal Moth?

Meal Moths or “Pantry Pests” are insects that feed on flour, dry pasta, powdered milk, spices, bird seed, cereal, etc. The Indian Meal Moth and Cigarette Beetle are the most common Meal Moths found in the pantry and home. The moth and beetle can be brought into your home in prepackaged food products or from outside, entering through cracks and crevices in your home. Cleanliness is not necessarily a factor on how these bugs find their home. All it really takes is a particular food source that is habitable.

Meal Moth Treatment

Before Arrow Pest Control can treat for the Meal Moth infestation, a trained technician will perform a thorough inspection of the infested area to determine what treatment plan is necessary to exterminate the pantry pests. You as the homeowner play an important role in the pre-treatment role as well! Infested pantry products need to be disposed of and the pantry needs to be cleaned out before treatment takes places. After disposing of the infested pantry products and cleaning the pantry, we suggest placing cereal and grain products in sealed containers. Arrow Termite and Pest Control will treat the pantry with insecticide and place Indian Meal Moth traps on the highest area of the pantry. This treatment can only commence after the pantry has been cleansed of infested pantry products. Furthermore we shall not begin treatment if consumable cereals and grain products are not paced in plastic containers or are removed from the immediate area.


I shopped around a decent amount before choosing a pest control company. These guys are very competitively priced, but also have amazing service!
