These little guys seem to have taken up residence in my home Springfield, VA. Mostly in the kitchen but they show up in the bathrooms etc too. Seem to be coming form within the house but I am not sure. I have brought some old firewood in this winter. Any help on an ID is greatly appreciated.

This is an Indian Meal Moth, Plodia interpunctella, a species with larvae that infest stored grain products, including flour and corn meal. Check your pantry to see if you have a forgotten container of oatmeal that has become infested. You can read more about the Indian Meal Moth on BugGuide.
