Treatment for grain moths is very similar to that of other grain insects. In a residential setting, we suggest focusing on prevention by practicing good sanitation. If you do get an infestation, you need to find the source, throw away all infested food and protect susceptible foods from infestation. Vacuum the empty shelves to remove any insects and food particles and store new food products in tightly sealed glass or plastic containers.
Even after this course of action, you may still need professional help through a moth removal service. In some cases, grain moths can perpetuate themselves on food that has been stashed away by mice. These problems are difficult to solve on your own. Braman can send a moth pest control expert to implement targeted applications of insecticide, insect growth regulator and pheromone traps.
In a commercial setting, a pheromone trapping program will enhance sanitation efforts similar to those used in residences. If a problem is discovered, a careful product inspection can help identify the specific offending product, which can then be removed, before problems get out of hand
If you suspect that you have a moth problem in either setting, contact us right away.
