How did you get ride of them? I got them from spices I bought in
England. They are called Indian Pantry Moths, a hell to be rid of
them. We called the fumicide company thrice, they fumigated the
closets and the cupboard. All the food we had on the closets are gone,
spices, flour, sugar, salt, tea, coffe. But they are still there, each
time we open a closet they fly to the roof of the kitchen and are
I still don't understand how can they survive almost one year without
any scrap of food, now we keep everything in the fridge and the
kitchen bank is so sterlile as a NASA spaceship.
Any advice?
