Indian Meal Moths

Indian Meal Moths (Plodia interpuctella)



Indian Meal Moths have a distinct copper reddish colouring on the outer part of their wings. From wing tip to wing tip, adult moths measure from five-eighths of an inch to three-fourths of an inch long.


These moths like to feed on dried fruits, grains, seeds, nuts, chocolate, candies, bird seed, dog food, powdered milk, dried red peppers and sugary foods.

Attracted to the light, Indian Meal Moths are found throughout the world in locations where food is stored, such as grocery stores.


Indian Meal Moths do infest foods and can contaminate food products.

Indian Meal Moths Prevention:

  • Dried food products should be inspected thoroughly for signs of Indian Meal Moths infestations.
  • Discard infested foods in outdoor bins.
  • Clean infested cupboards thoroughly with a vacuum and soap and water.
  • Store food in sealed containers.
