Pantry Moth Infestation Sydney

Pantry Moth Infestation Services Sydney

Pantry moths are tiny little insects with nearly invisible eggs and small white larvae. These moths are often found in areas where food is stored, and can contaminate the contents in the pantry. Even a single pantry month flying around in your storage area is a cause for concern because you might have a full infestation without even realising it. At Knock-Down Pest Control, we encourage clients to call us immediately if you see signs of a moth infestation. The longer you ignore the problem, the harder it’s going to be to eliminate all the moths in your pantry.

Where can you find them?
Pantry moths, often known as Indian meal moths, draw nutrition from certain food items. You won’t find them hiding in walls and crevasses but in the food ingredients. The moths are commonly present in:

  • Bird seed
  • Candy
  • Cereals and grains
  • Dried fruit
  • Dried herbs
  • Flours and meals
  • Pasta
  • Pet food
  • Powdered milk
  • Nuts

If you purchase and bring a contaminated bag of any of the above mentioned items, you’re likely to get a full pantry infestation.

What are the signs of infestation?

Adult moths flying around aren’t the only sign of the infestation. In fact, they’re the last sign of the problem. You can find other signs well before the larvae develop into adults and cause more problems. Here are some things you need to be on the lookout for:

Knockdown Pest Control Sydney Webbing

These moths do produce webbing like spiders. Most people assume they’re spider webs and don’t take them seriously enough. However, it’s a good idea to double check if you have pantry moths if you have these webbings on your kitchen utensils and pantry boxes.

Knockdown Pest Control Sydney Grain Based Items

Look for small white and grey larvae in your food items. You’re more likely to find them in grain based items like pasta, cereal, flour, and baking mixes. These larvae are designed to blend in with the flour but if you look closely enough, you can spot them easily.

Knockdown Pest Control Sydney Pet Foods

These moths and their larvae are found in pet food so check them as well. Some people store pet food and human food separately and fail to check the former for signs of infestation.

Knockdown Pest Control Sydney

Attempted to organise an inspection and service for my mother's house. Multiple businesses were unable to fit her in with an average waitime of a week. Andrew took the time to assess the problem and that she was an elderly person. He was very responsive and thorough and accommodated the service inlight of the distress, discomfort and anxiety the mites were causing her. She got a good nights rest- bite-free. Many thanks for your compassion and care.

Jamie came and did such a great job at our apartment block. He found the source of the mites, removed their nests, blocked up the holes, sprayed the apartments & ceiling all in record time. He was being bombarded by all the neighbours and he was friendly and professional. We will be requesting him again in the future.

Jed was so calming from the moment he arrived and mind you I had emailed at around 4am worrying about a swarm of insects. He was a true professional and talked me through everything clearly from start to finish. The whole service, from the early morning call to follow up my enquiry was effortless and super fast. Highly recommend - thanks Jed, Andrew and team!!
