Mediterranean Flour Moth


  • These moths are pests of dry food products such as cereal and flour
  • The adult moths don't eat but instead lay eggs within the food

Mediterranean flour moths are a common pest of dry food goods. They are small to medium sized moths that lay their eggs within the food to provide their caterpillars with a food source. The adults do not actually eat the food. The caterpillars contaminate the food and spin silk threads as they do so.

Any food that these pests have gotten to should be discarded. All food products should be properly sealed in plastic or metal containers with tight fitting lids. A clean environment is often effective in eliminating these moths but  chemical applications are often required. Talk to a Horizons technician today to discuss pest control options for these moths that is kitchen safe.

I just moved to the area and called Horizons for a quote. The office staff were very helpful in assessing my needs and getting me set up with an appointment. Horizons Professional Pest Control sent a technician the same day to take care of my problem. My technician, Chad, was very knowledgable and took so much time talking to me about what I needed and telling me how he was going to address those needs. So happy with my choice.
