Reproduction Patterns of Meal Moths
The life cycle of the meal moth can vary greatly in its length,
depending on temperature and environmental conditions, and can range
anywhere from a few weeks up to 3/4 of a year or more.
Adult female moths will deposit up to 300 eggs in or near food
products so that when the eggs hatch, the emerging larvae will have
food. Each larva will create a tunnel with its silk and droppings.
It will feed for up to 6 weeks on food products before crawling off
to pupate in a crack or along the edge of a ceiling or cupboard. It
will then construct a cocoon, pupate, and emerge as an adult winged
moth ready to mate and lay eggs (the adult moth usually dies about a
week later) and the cycle continues.
If conditions are ideal, there can be up to 5 generations in a year.
Meal Moth's Habitat
Meal moths may enter a home by flying through an open window, open
door or hole in a screen.
The most common method of entry for a meal moth, however, is by
hitching a ride in packaged foods and groceries.
Once there, the larvae feast on grain products, seeds, dried fruits,
animals foods and many other consumables.
