Indian Meal Moth

The moth is distinguished by the wings being gray colored at the base and outer portion being reddish brown. The moths fly in the evening and usually take short flights. The caterpillars are about inch long and colored yellow to pale green; they may be found among webs in the infested food, or wandering away from the food. 

Removing and discarding all infested food material is important to eliminating this pest. Vacuuming spilled flour, meal and other food material from sites will be more effective than washing (which make a paste in cracks) and applying insecticides. Keep potentially infested foods in sealed containers
