Insect Limited's Indian Meal Moth Traps
No Survivor Indian Meal Moth Pheromone Traps catch Indian Meal Moths and Mediterranean Flour Moths; both of these moths are found around pantry items. These diamond shaped traps have a very sturdy design that can be hung. If you hang the trap, hang it about five feet above the ground. Each trap comes with a pheromone bullet lure. This lure is a pheromone lure that contains a powerful female sex attractant, capturing the male moths. The female will look for food sources to lay her eggs.
The Indianmeal Moth and Mediterranean Flour Moths feed on grain, grain products, flours, cereals, oats, seeds, graham crackers, dried fruits, dog food, powdered milk, nuts, chocolate, etc. The key to pantry moth control is finding the infested food sources. You can discard or freeze the infested food. Because of the variety of foods that they attack, it can be challenging. Also, look for pupal cocoons in corners and cracks and crevices. Crack and crevice and spot treatments can be applied in areas where infested items were located to help control newly emerged adult moths.
Packaging: (1 No Survior Hanging Trap + 1 Pheromone Bullet Lure)
- Adult moths flying around grains, dried food, pet food, bird seed, etc.
- When the worm-like larvae feed, they produce a silk like a web on the food's surface. Many times, larvae are found feeding below this web. The larvae will remain in the food stuff until it begins to pupate into a cocoon. Often, it will crawl to a protective area like a corner of a wall or joint of the ceiling to make its cocoon.
- Inspect these areas looking for the signs.
These traps should be placed where there is pantry moth activity or could become a pest. Never use more than 3-4 traps per 1,000 square feet. Two traps are plenty in a typical home kitchen. If you place too many traps out, the male moths will be confused and not know where to land on the trap. In a typical home kitchen, two traps are plenty, for a larger space, use 3-4 traps per 1,000 square feet. In larger areas, space traps around 15 -25 feet apart. Replace the trap every 2 months or when it becomes full of moths.You can use these traps year around, but the warmer spring/summer months bring in greater numbers.
