Ick!!! The moths are back. [moved from General Chowhounding Topics]

I know this has been discussed at length but it's pantry moth season again and they're back with a vengeance at my house! This year in January, before they make their return debut, I did a major cleaning with bleach/water. Pretty much tossed everything and started fresh. Put everything new in clamp down cannisters..even my spices. I filled the support holes for my shelving with silicone caulking and still they came back. I saw them a month ago in my local grocery store. I don't hesitate to tell the store manager in any store if I happen to see them flying around. Here locally, I've seen them in almost every supermarket. I don't know how I'm every supposed to be rid of these pests if the stores have them. I put out Safer Pantry Traps and that helps but it's still nasty.

I'm just venting.
