So I have just been looking out the thread from August “Worms in my Huel bars” as I now too have Indianmeal moth larvae in my kitchen. I haven’t seen any moths and I have now found around 50 of them. I’ve just had a new kitchen fitted in the last month so all the cupboards are new and clean.
Most of the larvae I’ve found have been in the cupboard where I keep my Huel or have been making their way from there across the ceiling. Apart from Huel there is only tinned soups, fruit pouches and protein powders from MyProtein in the cupboard. All of these foods have been in my house for months. I hadn’t seen the moth larvae at all until I put the pouches from my last Huel delivery in the cupboard. My last delivery was 28th September. Whilst my kitchen was being fitted I kept the Huel pouches in the delivery packaging in my lounge. I unpacked it into the new cupboards on 18th October. I first saw the larvae on 23rd October on the door of the cupboard. I haven’t put any new food in this cupboard until the Huel delivery. It’s my contingency cupboard of soups mainly, and nothing else since. Literally only the Huel delivery. Some of the pouches are still unopened. Should I parcel up the whole delivery and send it back for checking?
Like I said, it’s possibly a coincidence, but the Huel pouches are the only new food going into a brand new kitchen cupboard and the rest of the food in there is either sealed tins or pouches I’ve had for months. When I figured out where the larvae were coming from and emptied everything out of the cupboard and scrutinised it, I found most of the larvae on the Huel pouches (4-5 on each). I’m happy to send back the entire delivery so you can check it. I have picked off and squashed all the larvae I’ve found but they are definitely Indianmeal moth larvae. They look exactly like the picture below.
