I finally tracked down the source of our pantry moths!

Some time ago, it was a sandwich-size zipper-lock bag full of wheat germ and oat bran mixed together. Yesterday, it looked like a katamari ball.

They also got into the sushi rice, TVP, and a bag of jasmine rice. I tossed a few other items in nibbled outer bags for good measure.

Lesson learned: dry goods MUST go into an airtight canister or FoodSaver bags before going into the cupboards.

I've never had pantry moths before anywhere I lived! My mother identified the moths for me before I found the source because she'd seen them when my parents lived in California.

Everything in canisters and bulk spice jugs was fine so we lost much less than I feared. We still have enough oatmeal to constipate a small army. (:
