Flour butterflies are a fairly common problem in homes, but obviously they can also proliferate in food industries, production rooms, mills, silos, warehouses and pantries. They mainly infest cereals and derivatives (pasta, flour), dried fruit, dried legumes, dried mushrooms, baked goods, chocolate, milk powder, fruit juices.
