The Indianmeal moth, Plodia interpunctella is a very common household pest, feeding principally on stored food products. In fact, it has been called the most important pest of stored products commonly found in our homes or grocery stores. The larvae are general feeders and can be found in grain products, seeds, dried fruit, dog food, and spices.
