I have had these moths for months now; picked them up in something at the grocery store. We have cleaned out the infested rooms, threw away everything that could possibly be infested, i sprayed with pyrthrine spray and powder, left the affected rooms empty for about a month, and they're now back. I have the pheromone traps out, and am catching several males a day, killing some flying moths. I ended up bombing the attic yesterday after placing a pheromone trap in the attic and catching a lot. But, today, it seems that the ones that escaped have come down from the attic. I'm spraying again, vacuuming, although i'm not seeing the eggs/worms. What do i do, short of calling an exterminator? We can't really afford that, but by the time we put more money into whatever it takes, i guess we might as well. But what would they do that's different than what i'm doing?
