What are Pantry Moths?
Pantry moths are meal moths in Sydney and near Sydney that love to get into the food storage in your pantry. Specifically, they are tiny winged insects that appear to be brown or tan. Besides, the most common household pantry moths in Sydney are the Indian meal moths.
Sustenance isn’t the only goal of these creepy-crawlies in your food. Unfortunately, your food storage provides them with a perfect environment to reproduce. Hence, they lay eggs where their larvae, later on, will have enough to eat.
Pantry moth adults are usually one-half inch long with 6 mm to 20 mm wingspan. Generally, their wings are one-third gray and two-thirds reddish brown.

How Do Pantry Moths Breed and Grow?
Like other flying insects, pantry moths have four stages in their life cycle. Apparently, this includes the egg, the larva, the pupa, and the adult.
When they lay their eggs, it could be undetected. Specifically, their eggs are too tiny and look like whitish-grey in appearance. Hence, you may never see them joining your cereals or other food in the pantry.
After, around seven days, the eggs hatch, and the larvae come out. Now, this stage is the most disgusting that can last around two to three months. Unfortunately, it’s the larvae that cause food contamination and make it look gross.
To prepare for the pupal stage, the the larvae move away from their food source and hide. Generally, they hide in crevices, cracks, and other tiny hidden spaces in the panty. Therefore, you would certainly hardly find them.
Finally, after fifteen to twenty days in the pupal stage, the adults are fully grown. Surprisingly, their mouthparts are not functional, disabling them to eat. Hence, their only goal is to lay more eggs and reproduce.
From among the stages of the pantry moths’ life cycle, the adult stage is when you’d usually notice them. Unfortunately, the first three stages are discreet.
What do Pantry Moths Eat?
Pantry moths in Sydney would eat any dry food and condiments in your pantry. In fact, they love cereals, rice, bread, pasta, couscous, flour, spice, dried fruits, and nuts. Moreover, they would also target your supplies of chocolates, coffees, cookies, and even peppers.

Surprisingly, it’s the larvae of the pantry moths that become a huge problem in your food supplies. Like any other flying insects, pantry moth larvae are voracious eaters. Apparently, they need it to advance to their pupal stage.
Why Do You Have Pantry Moths in Your Home?
