Can somebody tell me what kind of insect this is? They are driving me nuts. They seem to be nocturnal. I killed about 20 of thos little critters last night and tonight there are more. Please help. I live in NYC and recently we planted some nectarine and peach trees in the front yard. Could this be the culprit?

Nevermind I found out the info. They are called Indianmeal moth. They live on rice, grain, flour, etc. They're a pain in the neck.

Put dry bay leaves in your flour, rice, etc. They will repel these critters and won't leave a taste or scent.
