Fumigation for Moths in Warehouses - Moth Exterminator

Moth Fumigation & Fogging

How Western Fumigation Helps Get Rid of Moths

Cocoa moths, also known as tobacco or warehouse moths, are common pests in candy stores, storage warehouses, food processing plants, and restaurant pantries throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic region. When adult female cocoa moths lay their eggs on packaged items like flour, cereal, tobacco products, nuts, cocoa, or dried fruit, the larvae burrow into the containers and contaminate their contents with silk webbing and droppings. Cocoa moth larvae often infest raw materials like grain and cacao beans. During harvesting and transport, they end up in storage facilities like warehouses and retail stores via product deliveries. Fumigating your establishment is an effective way to prevent cocoa moths from spreading throughout your facilities and ending up in your customers’ homes.

A common pantry pest, the Indian meal moth feeds on stored grains, dried fruits, nuts, cereals, pasta, and a variety of processed foods. Mid-Atlantic and New England businesses that store or sell dry goods, such as grocery stores, restaurants, silos, and warehouses, are at high risk for infestation. Although Indian meal moths don’t bite or carry known diseases, they still contaminate products and cause revenue loss. Adult Indian meal moths lay eggs and leave droppings in grains and other stored food while larvae feed on it and spin webs that are dense enough to see in heavy infestations. Health and sanitation departments can penalize business owners for spoiled products, which can temporarily shut down a business. Before word gets out and hurts your reputation, it’s best to handle the issue immediately and fumigate to keep Indian meal moths out of your business.
