I grew straw flowers and brought them in the house... Now there are moths all over my house. How do I get rid of the moths and prevent this from happening again... I really liked the straw flowers but have thrown them all out... Thanks

Based on your description, it is possible you have an infestation of that small moth that becomes a pantry pest in addition to being a nuisance. You might want to verify its identity with your local county extension (350-2540) and see what methods of control they suggest, but many people have success using the pantry moth traps such as that available from Gardeners Supply ( web site: http://www.gardeners.com/defau... ).
