EENY-026: Indianmeal Moth, Plodia interpunctella (Hübner) (Insecta: Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)

Figure 5. Remains of a pupal case of the Indianmeal moth, Plodia interpunctella (Hübner). The larva pupated on the side of a stack of paper cups in the senior author's kitchen. All pantry goods must be examined carefully to eliminate the next generation of adults which can fly and thus distribute the infestation further.
