Angoumois Grain Moth Facts

  • ½ to ⅝ inches in length.
  • Yellowish-white in color.

Angoumois grain moths were first discovered chomping through grain stores in a former Provence of France known as Angoumois, but quickly spread across Europe and into the rest of the world with grain shipments. Because larvae feed inside of grains, it can be difficult to recognize an infestation in the field, causing entire grain stores to be tainted.
