    This product is similar to the sticky tape but it's made specifically for these pests. I keep it in the cupboard with my dry goods and haven't had a problem since.

    Thank you Bunny! I thought it was the fresh veggies but after your post I did some major cleaning and you are absolutely right. I had to toss a big bag of whole wheat flour and some Jasmine rice but I think I got it. The moths were also in our hamster food which I think was the original culprit. They were all over in that bag. I think I caught it early so there's no damage to my rice-a-roni but THANK YOU, thank you, thank you! If I hadn't followed your link I would've just kept up with the tape and not cleaned out the pantry. You saved me lots of money. I hate being an adult sometimes. Remember when you were a kid and you never thought about this stuff?? Grr, I'd never heard of pantry moths. Stupid bugs.
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.

    I've never heard of pantry moths, either. You've taught me something. See??? There can be advantages to not being a wizard in the kitchen! I'm feeling better and better about my lack of kitchen abilities.....now, if I could just stop buying kitchen gadgets!

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    We grilled out with friends last night for my birthday. My cruel daughter managed to get photos of me falling out of my chair and rolling down the hill.
    Because I have NO shame, I will post a couple of them.

    In the first one, you see my friend Carroll and I am in the background going over.





    Let me just say that the party had JUST started and I had only had 1 beer at this point. I was not hammered. Just klutzy.

    Oh, MRD, that did make me chuckle. I've had that happen to me, too, with a chair - no one took a picture though! Sounds like you had a fun day.

    I was wondering that, too.

    I'm wondering how big that 1 beer was! Glad you had a good time!

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    My friend Carl who passed away in 2006 has the birthday the day before mine. One year we gave a surprise party for him and everyone had his face on a stick. It was on the cake, on t-shirts, etc. It was a scream. It became such a funny thing over the years after that and it kept showing up places that we used that at his memorial service in 2006. Since he and I always celebrated our birthday's together, I always get out his face on a stick so we can continue to celebrate together. Since my daughter was trying to take a picture of me and my friend and Carl together, I have said it was all Carl's fault. And it was a regular size bottled beer.

    It was funny. I've laughed about it since then. I'm always falling down and there was one other time that Carl was ordering me around at a 4th of July event and I fell down, so it's appropriate to say it was his fault this time too.
