    Ah, I'd probably spray, then let it air a bit before putting stuff back. The stuff you have to put back will probably be fairly indestructible anyway!

    They hate bay leaves. Clean out everything, throw the infested things away and clean the cupboard top to bottom, then scatter a few bay leaves. We did this and never had a problem again.

    I had to chuck everything then I gave the cupboard a good wipe over with some vinegar then put bay leaves in and have never had a problem since.

    As everyone has advised, it's best to clean out and start again and then put Bay leaves everywhere, I have bay leaves all throughout my pantry and never have an issue with moths/wevels etc some in your flour containers, etc. Also doesn't hurt to wipe out your pantry with some Eucalyptus Oil as well. Good Luck!

    I have tried EVERYTHING and they keep finding their way back in. Although we have greatly reduced the numbers (only see one every now and then) I hate the little critters with a passion!

    Love my tupperware modular mates . I pretty much threw everything out and started again, putting everything into the Tupperware and haven't really had an issue since ( I need more MM and open stuff got attacked)

    All my flours and rice go in the fridge or freezer and everything else is sealed as well as it can be. I still have an issue with them at the moment but that's because I haven't had a chance to go through and do a big clean. The biggest cause for infestation is them already being in the flour or something else when you bring it home form the supermarket. Putting it in the freezer kills them, even if you then put them in the cupboard after a day or so.
