The problem is that these pests live in foodstuffs. the best way to eradicate them is to clear the kitchen and for the lavae use a standard pesticide.  Alternativley check out the web for home made varieties using garlic/onion and pepper sauce.

To avoid future infestation pheromone moth traps maybe used.

Bon chance

We are scraping them off the ceiling but wanted to know what to use to stop the eggs from hatching in the first place

We think they are Indian meal moths but just want to stop the things crawling on the kitchen ceiling!

When you say moth larvae, you could try looking up pictures of some household moths and larvae on the internet . I had a problem many years ago in UK , small brown moths and larvae cases appearing in many places in a room , not a kitchen . On investigation it appeared that they were carpet moths , it too several days and applications of variious sprays, carpet shampoos etc to eradicate them .
