The Safer Brand Pantry Pest trap lures and traps meal moths, grain moths, flour moths and seed moths that infest kitchen cupboards, dry food pantries and other food storage areas. This safe and hassle-free system helps pinpoint breeding moths and feeding larvae so you can quickly and effectively get rid of an infestation.
Easy-to-Use Traps Provide Weeks of Protection
The Pantry Pest Trap features a convenient triangular shape that easily fits into hard-to-reach nooks and corners. Equipped with two traps and two time-released pheromone lures, this natural pest control solution offers 400 sq. ft. of cost-effective coverage that lasts up to three months.
How it Works
Time-released pheromone lure attracts adult males
Moths enter trap and stick to the glue inside
Trapped moths indicate a potential infestation
Eliminating adults helps break the breeding cycle
How it Works
Drop Lure into Trap
Open lure packet and drop pheromone chip into the hole on the bottom of trap. Lure will stick to the glue inside.
Position Trap in Vulnerable Area
Place the baited trap in areas where dried foods are stored, like cupboards, garages and basements. Ensure the trap receives ample air circulation while remaining undisturbed from swinging doors and foot traffic.
Replace Every 12 Weeks
Monitor traps on a weekly basis, replacing them once they’re full or after 12 weeks of use.
Pantry moth larvae contaminate pantry foods during the feeding process. Identifying adults is the first step in targeting and eradicating these destructive larvae.
About Pantry Moths in Your Home
Identification, Habits and Behaviors
Adult pantry moths are approximately 3/8 inch long with distinctive markings on their brown-bronze wings. The cream-colored larvae have dark brown heads and feed on stored foods until they develop enough strength and nourishment to spin their cocoons.
From eggs to adults, all stages of pantry moths can be found in your home. Females lay their eggs near food so the larvae can nourish themselves as soon as they hatch. Larvae feed on dry foodstuffs for up to 6 weeks before constructing a cocoon – usually in the edges and corners of cabinets. Typical foods larvae feed on include:
cereals, grains, rice and pasta
flours and meals
dried fruits and dehydrated vegetables
candy and chocolate
nuts and seeds (including bird seed)
dry pet food
