Can Betta eat Indian Meal Moth?

I have a few Indian Meal Moth flying around in my house. I was wondering if it would be harmful for my betta to eat them =/
One Indian Meal Moth dropped into his bowl (I'm not sure how) and he ate it... Haha

Those are kinda big for him...If he ate one, let his system cool down and have him poop it out.

For now, get some saran wrap,poke holes in it, and place over the tank to have no more moths get in.

It probably would not be very harmful to him, but it is alot of food. PewPewPew is right, let him digest it and place plastic wrap over the tank. Since bettas are mainly insectivores, the moth was probably a tasty treat for him!
