Tip from the manufacturer: Do not use more than 2 traps in your home at a time. Using more than the recommended number of traps can make your home oversaturated with the attractant and the moths will become confused and will not enter the traps.
ProPest Pheronet Pantry Pest Traps lure moths by using special moth pheromones, or sex lures, that excite male moths. These traps attract and kill male moths, disrupting mating. This product is best used in conjunction with a crack and crevice aerosol to treat under and around baseboards and door frames in the infested area. We recommend Cy-Kick Aerosol to treat these areas. We also have a Pantry Pest Kit.
Pantry Pest Traps protect grain based foods such as cereals, flour, meal and pasta, pet and bird food, popcorn and more.
The traps are designed to capture pantry moths including Indian Meal Moths, Mediterranean Flour Moths, Almond Moths, Raisin Moths and Cigarette Beetles.
To use this trap simply remove the release paper on the trap to expose the glue. The trap is already pre-baited with pheromones, so all you need to do is 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.
The ProPest Pantry Trap really works. I don't know where the pantry moths come from, but this is the second time in the past year I have had them and the traps are the only thing I have found to get rid of them. They are wonderful!
I was swarmed by the moths while assembling the trap to hang it up! We've been bugged by these pantry moths for two-years. We keep spray insecticide cans all over the kitchen but have had no result. Finally had a Nolan $500 estimate to professionally treat the pests. We're trying to eliminate the source, but in the meantime, this is really clearing the air for us! (I've read placing more than one trap can confuse the moths, so we are starting with one, although I bought 6.)
How many of the ProPest Pheronet Pantry Pest Traps can I put in a 2500 sqft house?
Some info says don't put out too many of these, one 1 or 2 at most as more will confuse moths. But the package says one every 100 square feet. I have 2500 sqft and am seeing these moths everywhere
Per the manufacturer you should not use more than 2 ProPest Pheronet traps in your home at a time. Using more than the recommended number of traps can make your home oversaturated with the attractant and the moths will become confused and will not enter the traps. You can place one per floor but putting more out would not be recommended.
