We haven't seen any moths yet, but I do see tiny black beattles and many, many of those evil worms/larva.
ARG!! do they ever go away?? we moved into this house 2 years ago and DF and I were thankful that we didn't have to deal with them anymore. (As my dad had a bad infestation of worms and moths for months before he was finally able to get control of it.)
But, like stupid idiots...we brought all our food from the old house into the new house and infested our pantry.
It's been slow, but after 2 years, it's finally getting to a point where they are starting to get out of hand. Before it was like 3 or 4 in the bottom corner of a drawer, but now I see dozens and their webs and skins everywhere! plus beattles so we're sure we have all stages surviving in our pantry.
I guess being pregnant pushed me into not being able to take it anymore lol. I've taken everything out of the pantry but I'm dreading throwing it all out, I'm thinking about throwing it in the freezer for a few days, I know that kills everything. anything that looks badly infested though is going right in the trash.
I'm scrubbing the pantry with bleach water but I know I'm not able to get into all the tiny cracks (and the cheap wood of this pantry is full of cracks, let me tell you) I'm thinking of taking the vacume to it once the wood dries.
I hear they can get through plastic? like the plastic bag that cereal comes in and zippy bags? It just seems it would take up so much space to have everything in a glass container or a pastic rubbermade-type container.
On the plus side now we have a reason to throw out all those cake mixes we haven't used in 2 years because of our lifestyle change.
anyone have this problem before? How did you deal with it?
