Pest Library - Indian Meal Moth

Indian Meal MothThis species of insect obtained its title, when an early American Entomologist by the name of Asa Fitch observed it feeding on Indian meal or corn meal. 


The ubiquitous Indianmeal Moth, Plodia interpunctella (Hubner), is a “stored product pest” found in both homes and grocery stores. That next bag of birdseed you purchase may be feeding more than just your backyard birds.
