    Dried should be fine. It's what my mother always used and it seemed to work.

    Thank you everyone. Will be going down tomorrow to buy bay leaves and traps. Will try anything.

    Just when I thought I had cleaned out my pantry I thought I should check the little holes where the hooks to hold the shelves go and surprise surprise they are all in there too! Soooooo disgusting!

    Will let you know how the saga of the multiply larvae and moths turn out!

    I'm not sure if they are back because I didn't get rid of them properly the first time or if it is a reinfestation.

    I've just bought some pantry moth traps. Not sure if I need to spray the cupboard as well. I really don't like doing that near food.
    I had mine come back too and I pulled everything out of the pantry and threw out almost everything. Washed every surface and pulled shelves out to wipe them down. And went right around all the cornices and skirting boards of the house and wiped them down. Massive job but that was several weeks ago now and I haven't seen them since.

    We had only just moved here when mine appeared so I didn't wipe down again (I'm talking been in a week) just threw out open packets and used the traps. They would have been here as I hadn't had a problem in my old house ever and I use Tupperware for just about everything. I've kept traps out since and haven't had a problem. But keeping traps out means any new ones will hopefully die before they breed!

    We just had them as well, you have to be so thorough with what's in the pantry, any moths/larvae/webbing inside has to go. We found them inside brand new and sealed packets it was insane where they were able to get to! Unopened cereal, pasta, sultanas the works. I also vacuumed them off the ceiling every day whilst getting rid of the contaminated food as I didn't want to spray.

    Ours seem to have gone now thanks to the bay leaves I've put all through our pantry. Amazing
