Pantry Moths are BACK!!!!

So, As many of you have noticed, as the weather warms up, Those darn pantry moths you thought you got rid of last fall are all of a sudden BACK!!  "What the heck is going on?", you ask, as just the sight of a single pantry moth flying around the kitchen brings back those feelings of disgust and panic you felt the last time you had to deal with this pest.
The truth is, that although you may not have seen them in awhile, these moths are probably part of the original gang that you were dealing with before.



It seems we may be just beginning our journey with pantry moths. I have read your website and a few others and looked at pictures. I appreciated your picture comparison of pantry moths vs. clothing moths. I am certain now we are dealing with the darker version, which is an Indian moth. And from what I've read, there's never just one.

What I can't seem to figure out from websites and comments posted is if we have an infestation, how many flying moths (approx) should we be seeing at one time?

Why are the pantry moths coming back??!

Aunt Norma,
Here is a picture to give you an idea of what I'm working with. I'm sitting on the couch in the main living room taking the picture. On the left is the sitting room/tv room. Middle is living room (where I'm sitting) and china cabinet area(where you see the picture of the dogs on the wall) , the doorway on the left of the picture is the kitchen. then you see the mirror and all the way on the right is the foyer and front door.

I have a trap in every room because I don't want them traveling the whole house to get the another trap.

Disaster Preparedness

I Just wanted to send a note out to everyone on the East Coast affected by the recent disaster of Sandy.  I have many friends, family and loved ones living on the east coast, and my heart is going out to all of you as I watch the terrible images on the news.  Living in Los Angeles, we have been blessedly spared of the impact of this disaster, but we HAVE had three earthquakes in the past 2 months, and i wanted to take this opportunity to remind ALL of us how important it is to be prepared for emergency situations like these.
