moth pests-help


Recommended Posts

Bran substrate can lead to some serious pest outbreaks, especially if not kept dry. Grain moths, however, can take very dry conditions. The life cycle takes three months to a year depending on the species so changing out the substrate should make a big difference as they have to start all over again. You may have to change out the substrate a few times over months to get rid of them. If you use a bran substrate you may want to change it on a regular basis every few months but even a relatively inert soil substrate may need to be changed every year or two if the moths continue to be an issue.
