Indian Meal Moth Traps

Pheromone Traps represent a simple and effective solution for getting rid of Indian Meal Moths and other product pests in kitchens, pantries, bathrooms, warehouses, and food processing plants.

How Indian Meal Moth Traps Work

Indian Meal Moth Traps and pantry pest traps are generally constructed of cardboard or paper lined on the inside with pheromone impregnated glue strip. Insect sex pheromones powerfully attract the male moths, trapping and killing them. Thus, mating is disrupted to the point of eventual control. 

We recommend ProPest Pheronet Pantry Pest Trap or Revenge Pantry Pest Traps  

Trap Set-Up

Both of the above traps are very simple to use. Simply remove the release paper on the trap to expose the glue. Form the trap into a box form and hang it in areas of moth activity. The trap can be hung with a hook or hanger or secured to a wall or other surface with double-sided tape. Each trap has an active life of 4 to 6 weeks.
