My house is full of moths! Does anyone know how to get rid of them?

If they are what is called pantry moths, you can get rid of them, but they are difficult. They usually come in on bird seed so if you have any of that in the house anywhere you should get it outside or in garage. Then, you might have to throw some foods away in your kitchen/pantry where you see the infestation. They spin tiny little webs in the packages. They can even burrow through plastic. You usually find them in dry goods like macaroni, spaghetti, and other dry goods.
Yes get rid of anything in boxes like pancake mix, cake mixes, flour, bran cereals, any powdered foods, etc. and wash your cabinets down inside and out with bleach water. Kill any worms or webby like things. Get rid of all cleaning cloths and trash. This worked for me. One cycle of moths can produce up to 400 eggs! You can bring them home from the grocery store also.
Hope this will work for you!
