Bummer city--pantry moths!

After our wonderful vacation I have come back to a horrible infestation of pantry moths. I have cleaned out the cabinets, bleached them and (yikes) spraided Raid in them. I know the Raid is bad but I was completely freaked out.

Here is the problem. I have a lot of canned goods. If I give them a good rinse in bleach can I put them in a box for a few weeks and see if anything happens before I put them back in the cabinet?

I also bought some traps and will put them up. Any other suggests for a really sad poor old mama?
