I hope you don't start seeing little moths fluttering all of the place.

I drink tonic water with a twist of lemon during the week. Well I just found a moth floating in my glass.  >:(

We always have fresh fruit on the counter so constantly fight fruit flies. Tried red wine and ACV under plastic wrap and several store bought traps but they come back.

Try lots of frogs for the fruit flies

Our dog has taken to chasing moths. He isn't very effective but it's highly amusing!

My two dogs (Border Collies) like to chase flies.  One is really quite good at it and can catch them.  The second one just started and, even though she is much more intelligent than the other, she doesn't quite get it.  The fly will go out of the lit area and she will follow.  She misses that it turns right around and comes back.  She continues to the other end of the house wondering where it went.  Over, and over and over again... :-\

I'd need a double barrel bug-a-salt. They are small!

Buy two, tape them together with a dowel across both triggers!  Double barrel!
We've had pantry moths for about a year now.  Started with them in a bag of whole corn we bought to grind up for cornmeal.  Very hard to get rid of.  We'll need to get to the cabinets here soon.

A whole year! That is bad news. We have everything outside while we are away for two weeks. Hope we can starve them out. If not, I may buy about a hundred frogs as suggested.

Why frogs, I remember MagicMan posting last summer about the geckos that he has at his house. They should work much better then frogs, just kindly ask him to mail you up a few.

Talked about this with my wife last night, she said the ACE store she used to work at actually had pantry moth traps.  Didn't know if you knew this or had tried them.

I sell them in the hardware store that I work at too.
google Safer pantry moth traps.
They also make a caterpillar spray that works great on those tomato hornworms.

Thanks thecfarm. Google will find anything and Amazon always has it for sale. Yesterday we went to Big Lots, Walmart and CVS looking for a simple wall-mount coat rack for dad's apartment and a new cane. Unbelievably, we found zero coat racks and unsuitable canes. We get back here and I go to Amazon and the mission is accomplished in about a minute. Like I told Patti, it's no wonder that one-line shopping is putting brick & mortar out of business.

It seems a shame in some ways, but makes sense in other ways.  I'm a big fan of Amazon Prime.  This year at the end of the year after we joined they sent us something saying we saved around $800 in shipping this last year getting stuff.  I don't believe that because I don't think we ordered that much at ALL, but we definitely saved the $100 sign up fee.  How do they make enough money to stay in business?  I've noticed that at least some times the price that has prime shipping is a bit higher than the same thing on ebay, but still not high enough to cover all the charges.  Beats me, but I'm happy to have found it.  I've bought tools, hardware, birthday and Christmas gifts, etc. on there.  Better than going to real stores and suffering having to walk all over and dealing with the public! 
Just ordered two pantry moth traps and we'll see how that works.  So far we only see a few a day.  It's amazing how we can never see where they come from.  Like I said before, someday we'll get to the cabinets when we're not so lazy.

Patti got a pack of Dr. Killigan's moth traps  and set them out tonight. They are sucking up moths like all get out. I looked in one it it had 13 moths trapped. I guess they are all males but they will stop the dynasty.
