We just mentioned earlier the first stage of development of an Indian moth, the eggs.
Let us describe successively the 4 stages of life of this house insect.
Inside cereals and other grain products are the eggs of the Indian corn moth. It will be an excellent food source for larvae.
The larval stage can be very short, around 14 days. However, it can be spread over a longer period of 287 days under ideal conditions. The Indian moth larvae mostly live in dry foods like grains and flour. The larva of flour insects may look different depending on what it ingests. Usually brown-headed with a cream-coloured body, the Indian moth larvae can also be white or pinkish.
After the larval stage comes to the stage of the chrysalis, the Indian moth hides inside a cocoon to transform into a butterfly.
The adult Indian moth
Rendered in the adult stage, the Indian moth turns into a butterfly in the house. Since she likes the dark more, you are more likely to see them flying in the evening and at night. Since adults do not feed on food, their lifespan is intended to be a maximum of two weeks.
