Angoumois Grain Moth Health Concerns

Angoumois grain moths are no reason for concerns by themselves, but the feeding activity of the larvae give a variety of molds and bacteria an entry into stored grain. It is also possible that the presence of a population of Angoumois grain moths raise the temperature of stored grains, allowing pathogens to spread more rapidly.
