Pantry Patrol Pheromone Traps, Does not attract Flour Beetle
By Christy on 09/23/2014
I purchased the Pantry Patrol Pheromone Traps after reading some of the reviews and though the reviews stated they were working to capture pantry moths, the description for the product states they also work for beetles. I have flour beetles and have taken the measures of emptying all of my cabinets and cleaning them. I have also bagged all food so they will cease to breed. I still see them so went ahead and made this purchase. I placed the trap where I see them most often and after several days, no beetles are in the trap ;(. After a week, still no beetles are in the trap but they are still on here. I would NOT recommend this product for flour beetles as it does not appear to attract them.
While these traps are labeled for a variety of common stored product pests, it is possible that you have a species not specified for this pheromone. When using traps, it is important to identify exactly what type of pest you have. We would also recommend using a residual aerosol such as Cy-Kick Aerosol in the cracks and crevices and in any voids around the cabinets: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/cykick-aerosol-p-43.html
I am so pleased that I purchased the Pheromone Traps! Someone bought bird seed for me that was not the brand I usually bought. Unfortunately, they bought the moths too. What a bother!!! ... that is until I bough Pantry Patrol. Those moths certainly do like the pheromone! Thanks to DoMyOwnPestControl!
Shipping was immediate! So far, none trapped, but none found alive after my thorough cleaning, disposal of anything or open, and spraying with an insecticide I had on hand initially. The Pheromone Traps give me piece of mind just having them out should any more flour beetles hatch.
What other products besides Pantry Patrol Pheromone Traps that are for drugstore beetles?
My kitchen is infested. Please help!!
We would also recommend using Cy Kick Aerosol. This product is to be applied to cracks and crevices like the voids behind and around kitchen cabinets and pantries. This product will help to kill larvae before they pupate and also beetles that have moved to cracks and crevices during the pupate stage.
