I'm not sure what you mean by rice moths, but I had a moth problem form some bunny pellets a couple years ago. OMG once you get them it's almost impossible to get rid of them! Someone told me to clean out all cupboards and wash everything down inside and out.
They don't just lay eggs in your bird seed, I think they lay eggs everywhere and get in to most any dry foods. Thorough washing and getting rid of some dry foods helped quite a bit, but I swear even now I see a few of those damned little moths flying around.
I had found the larvae in the bunny pellets..after that I was sure to put them in the freezer for a day or 2 to kill any larvae that just MIGHT be in them.
I don't think you are finding more moths because of the NEW keet seed, I think they have laid eggs everywhere and new moths are just poppin up all over.
Good luck! It's a major pain in the butt. I washed all walls down too.
Where do you keep your bird seed? And is it in an airtight container? I wouldn't switch them to all pellet..I think they need seed in their diet. Besides-pellets can get them too! ICK!
I think I remember someone else here having a moth problem some time back. Can't remember who tho
