  • Put some Bay leaves in their on every shelf they don’t like the smell look around for any nests they have on the ceiling of the cupboard take everything out if you have rice put it in the freezer to kill the moths if you have cereal they will probably be in it check you probably bought home will be in flour also.

  • I regularly bug bomb my home, it keeps all the creepy crawlies under control but it needs to be done on a regular basis to keep them away

  • I thought I had gotten rid of mine months ago but they have just come back. It’s awful!

  • I’ve got them too and am trying to get the motivation to do something. I have thrown out all the open containers (there weren’t many as I use Tupperware). I have heard that you should put flour etc in the freezer as that kills the moths, then throw them away. I am just going to pull everything out of the pantry, spray with insect killer, then wipe it all over. Keep everything in sealed containers and you should not have a problem again.

  • I don’t know how to fully try rid of them but my mum used to do 2 things: buy these cardboard triangles from the supermarket, they had sticky stuff in the middle and all the moths would get stuck.
    She also out open flours in the freezer, Apparently it killed any eggs laid and stopped a cycle of breeding.
