The Pantry Moth Trap is designed to be used in and around kitchen cupboards and is free standing when folded.
The trap contains a pheromone presented in an extruded polymer lure loacted on the glue surface. Male Ephestia/Plodia moths are attracted by the pheromone lure, enter the trap and are caught on the non-drying glue on the inner surfaces of the trap.
Presence of pantry moths can sometimes be due to the infestation already present in pre-packaged food stuffs though they can fly in from outdoors and neighbouring homes. They can also breed continuously as they usually exist in favorable conditions. Often the first indication of the infestation is the appearance of small moths flying about or the presence of beetles in or near the food package. Do not purchase broken packaged food and to prevent infestations, when transferring don’t mix new with old products.
Using traps to capture the moth breaks the breeding cycle lessening continuing infestations.
There are several pantry pest insects which are Indian Meal Moth, Rice Weevils, Confused Flour Beetle, Granary Weevils, Grain Moths, Grain Bores, Drugstore Beetles, Tobacco Beetle, Red Flour Beetles and others.
