Does CB-80 Aerosol kill indian meal moths?

I have removed all food sources and need to know the process for completely clearing these things out of my pantry - do I spray the CB-80 and then how long do i wait to vacuum/clean the surfaces? Help!

Answer:

The best way to get rid of an Indian Meal Moth infestation is to clean out all of your cabinets and discard any infested items. Seal all goods that could potentially become infested in air tight plastic containers. While all items are out of the cabinets you should perform a deep clean. Vacuum and scrub all shelves, paying special attention to cracks and crevices where insects may harbor. Using a spray product in the cracks and crevices will help eliminate the moth larva that has crawled away from the food products to pupate. Per the CB-80 Aerosol manufacturers label:  FOR INDIANMEAL MOTHS AND ANGOUMOIS GRAIN MOTHS: Close doors and windows. Direct spray CB-80 into all parts of room especially around stored food product containers, pallets and darkened areas. Spray 7 to 10 seconds for each 1,000 cubic feet of space. Keep area closed for 15 minutes following treatment. Repeat application weekly or as needed.
