The adults lay their eggs in various foods including grains and grain products, they can also be found in boxed cereal, nuts, flour, dried fruit, Taco shells, chocolates and pet foods. This is where the larvae comes in and does the most damage to your food products. Its appearance is worm-like and is generally an off-white color. This stage feeds in areas that are well protected. They can and do chew through paper, and cardboard and even low-grade plastic bags to reach their food source. Once at their food source they form an extensive amount of webbing over the food items they infest. One advantage, this webbing makes it easy to spot infested products. So look for the webbing in your favorite boxed cereal, pasta, grain products, nuts, seeds, pets foods, and yes they love your chocolates. Moreover, the list goes on. Just about anything in your pantry that is not canned is likely to become infested.
Now the Pupa stage forms a silk cocoon on its way to becoming an adult moth. It should be noted that while in this state they are protected from all chemical treatments. There are no pesticides that will affect this stage of its development. However, once they emerge as adult moths, they become highly susceptible to many available chemicals.
The cocoons are generally located in areas where the wall meets the ceiling. But most often they are in a protected area that is not visible. This is where professional help is needed as I know where they hide. It is their instinct to crawl to a hidden area where they make their cocoons to pupate. They are even found in areas far from the visibly infested foods. This is why the whole house and not just the kitchen and pantry must be treated. However, do not worry, all the materials I use are safe enough to be used in hospitals, they are also effective enough to solve this pest problem. So you can relax, I am here to help.
