Can you send me a sample or picture of the moths? Put them in a small vial and do not crush them. I need to know exactly what species they are before I can give you an easy ways to kill them.
Foggers will only kill the exposed adults. You need a strategy and control plan. Since you have had them for over a year, the infestation has probably grown. We need to get on this as soon as possible.
Let me know what you can do as far as samples or pictures.
