Hi annealonso

Since the question was asking for a specific product, I have found it
but I have also included some other solutions since "DeBug" is
actually an insecticide meant for crawling insects rather than flying

It is available from 

Tangent Insecticide Solutions


Additional Links
There are several other products on the market that are more
commercially available.

A brand name you may have heard of called "Raid" make a number of
products that you may find useful and most will be available in your
local supermarket.

A list of raid products can be found here at Bug Free Living.

You can buy these products online as well. 

Grocery Express

Altra Easy Shopping

Mothballs can be effective as well if the problem is really bad but
they have to be hung up in a cupboard or wardrobe so that the fumes
can become concentrated enough to kill both the moths and their

Madsci Network

As a final piece of advice, moths are attracted to the light because
they believe it is the moon. So if you leave a light on and the door
open, they will come in the house. If we leave our door open in the
summer, we hang an insect zapper over the point of entry, because this
itself contains a light, they are attracted to it and 'poof' no more
moth. You can buy these zappers from most garden and hardware stores.

How stuff works

Search Strategy

Moths "DeBug" "getting rid of" "insectides" and "moth" "flying
insects" "online fly sprays"

I hope this helps
