SO YOU HAVE PANTRY MOTHS
If you are reading
this, it is likely because your kitchen and peace of mind have been invaded
with a tiny flying nemesis known as the Pantry Moth. By the time you have noticed them, chances
are they have already set up shop in your pantry and in your food. If you see one, there are plenty more that
youhaven’tseen. The good news is that they aren’t poisonous
or disease-ridden. Gross as it is, if you
have accidentally eaten one, it won’t hurt you.
Question: Hi- can you tell me if thePantry Moth Spray
Kills Pantry moth eggs and larvae as well as the adult moths? And also, how do you use it/ how does it work? thnx
Aunt Norma: Yes, it will kill any larvae and
eggs that it comes into contact with. The problem with this, though, is
that because evenonefemale moth can lay up to 300 microscopic
eggs per day, it is practically impossible to get all the eggs. The
way to deal with this is through a system that I have developed that gets rid
of the pantry moth infestation permanently by interrupting their breeding
practices and keeping them away from any source of food.
Thank you for getting back to me. Last Friday
I took all food out of my pantry and threw about 70% of it away. Anything that
still looked okay I put in the freezer. All of my "other stuff" was
put outside (we live in the Midwest and it's pretty cold out). The stuff I put
outside was unwashable. For example, bills, paper towel, etc... Do you think
the stuff outside will be okay if it's been in the cold for a week? I washed my
entire pantry down with soap and water.
HOW TO GET RID OF PANTRY MOTHS
(These are the instructions fromAunt Norma's Pantry Moth Spray
... if you don't want to purchcase the spray- you can try filling a spray bottle with white vinegar and dish detergent in place of the Pantry Moth Spray)
Now that you are thoroughly disgusted and understand the
enemy, it’s time to get started. There
is a lot of work to do, and sadly, there is no shortcut. This is war.
You need to begin by removing
