I went through them for a bit when I was getting my seed
from a local Bird shop. I had a heck of a time getting rid
of them. i no longer buy any seed products or anything at
I ended up having to really stay on top of vacuuming and
cleaning to get rid of them.
When you buy seed put it in the freezer for 2 or 3 hours and
it will kill the moths.
They sell moth traps. I think though that a big zapper is
better especially if you have a bird room with many birds.
Make sure to keep any paper or fallen seed cleaned up and
spic and span around the cages as they can crawl in places
and nest and hatch out more of the little farts. My friend
had them so bad she took her birds outside in the summer
totally cleaned and shampooed removing all from her bird
room and then cleaning cages well and putting them back to
get rid of them.
