Silver Spring Pest Control: Moths
The Indian meal moth is a common pest recognized by its pale gray or coppery brown front wings. Similar to a small pinkish caterpillar in its larval stage, this moth hides within and feeds on stored food products.
Moths get inside a home or commercial location via open windows, doors or accidentally from infested plants or items such as rugs, clothing or linens. A potential problem for residential homes, bakeries, restaurants, grain industries and warehouses storing grains, cereals and flour, moth infestations are also easily spread worldwide through commercial trading.
Outdoor lighting during the evening hours is also a significant factor in attracting moths to residential or commercial location. The Clothes moth is considered to be a serious pest since they derive their main source of nourishment from natural fibers and dry food products that include all grains and pet food stored anywhere in homes or businesses across the Silver Spring region.
