How to Get Rid of Indian Meal Moths

Getting rid of Indian meal moths is a fairly straightforward process: simply eliminate their food source. Even if you only found the moths in one bag of flour or box of cereal, you may want to discard other food packages, especially those that have been opened for some time. After throwing out suspect packages, be sure to sanitize the pantry shelves with soap and water to prevent a recurrence of the infestation, and store food products in tightly sealed containers.
