Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:229 EcoTip: If you discover you have little moths flying around in your pantry – they are probably grain moths (also known as flour moths or pantry moths). If you see these moths it means you already have some form of grain or cereal that has their larva which are little worm-like creatures. To prevent grain moths try popping your grain based food products in the freezer for a few days to kill the eggs and larva. Once the moths are flying around, you should search out the source. Attractant bait traps can be used to catch and control the male moths until you discover the source. This will help reduce the female moths ability to breed and lay eggs.
