    Wash your cabinets with liquid hot sauce. Mix 1/4 cup of hot sauce, with 2 cups of warm to hot water. The smell might be a little much, but it won't harm you. I'm sure you cabinets are lined with contact paper, so dip a rag in the water and hot sauce, squeeze excess out and wipe. When the moths are gone, clean with straight vinegar. Good Luck!

    They come in from paper products either as eggs or as moths. Use to get them all the time until I stopped buying the plastic bags, paper products and boxed foods from certain low cost stores. They get in the products at either the packager or the warehouse. Clean cabinets and transfer the products to containers with good lids on them. have done this and it has been years since we have had any. Check it out. Think about recent purchase the last time you had them, then open the boxes and pull out the product to see. They kept coming in from the plastic baggies. Good luck.

    Have you figured out where they come from? Are you using sealed containers like Tupperware canisters and double sealed plastic bags? Anything that comes into your house in paper or cardboard needs to be in a sealed container. Is the wood rotting and you have termites that are hatching? You need serious professional help for termites. Call a real exterminator to check it out. Be careful yourself with all treatments, and ventilation and cleaning gloves help keep you safe.
