There are specific Phermone traps available that are specific for stored product pests, these traps are usually glue traps with a sexual attractant to capture the moths. These can be used for monitoring as well as control.
They do require replacement and that the glue stays clean and dust free.
Cold treatment is another option for products; they can be kept in refrigerator or freezer until needed. Temperatures in your deep freezers of 0 degrees F will kill insects if the cold is allowed to penetrate all areas of the package.
Fumigation is the only product that can penetrate through packing, but is not something that can be done by a homeowner. You can apply a direct contact insecticide, that is applied on the surface of the pantry or where the food is stored as a crack and crevice treatment. This can be in aerosol form or liquid concentrate. Use of an IGR is usually advisable if there is an ongoing infestation that is not quite under control.
