Moths?

Asked April 5, 2014, 4:25 PM EDT

We have very small moths in the house - 2-3 at a time. I don't think they are clothes moths because no damage to anything. If they are pantry moths wouldn't we see them in the pantry around food? How do we get rid of whatever it is.

An accurate identification is important. Indian Meal Moths have become rather common pests in homes, so that would be my first inclination. You could invest in a couple of Pantry Moth pheromone traps from your local hardware store and see if they are attracted to them. For an accurate identification, contact your local U. Conn. extension office and ask if they accept specimens. For more information, see
