Indian Meal Moth

Dear Lyne,
This is not a Fly.  It is an Indian Meal Moth, a species that infests stored grain products.  We suggest you check your pantry for the site of the infestation.  Perhaps that corn meal you only use at Thanksgiving or that long forgotten oatmeal at the back of the cupboard.  They will also infest spices. The larvae feed on grain.  The adults do not.
