My apartment has pantry moths, aka Indian seed moths. I probably brought them home from the parrot shelter I volunteer at on Saturdays, or possibly they were in a batch of birdseed. It doesn't really matter. When I first noticed the infestation, I threw out everything grain-based that wasn't airtight, and I bought seed moth traps. (Unlike with wool moths, seed moth traps can supposedly end an infestation by killing all the males before they can breed.)
Since then, it's been a cycle: I'll go for a couple weeks with only one or two moths in the traps and have days where I don't even see any live ones. Then all of a sudden there will be moths everywhere and the traps are saturated. The first couple of times this happened, I found and threw away food sources that I'd missed; but this has been going on for months. I feel like I'm under siege, and I'm really frustrated.
I told my landlord early on what was happening and what I was doing to deal with it, and they were cool about it, thankfully; so at least I don't have to worry about getting evicted over this. But I'm at a loss here. I'm starting to think that ultimately I'll have to throw out everything in my pantry and scrub every surface in my apartment, and I can't even begin to imagine having the energy for that.
A further complication is that I have pet birds; and while seed is only a small part of their diet, there's always seed scattered around the cage.
Also, I've posted here before about sleep issues; well, I've been diagnosed with delayed phase sleep disorder, so now at least I have a reason for being exhausted all the time. The reason I mention it here is that, because of said exhaustion, I struggle to keep myself fed and presentable day to day, let alone keep up with dishes and laundry. Maintaining a state of cleanliness such that there's nothing for moths to eat is right out, at least for now.
