ProPest Pheronet Pantry Pest Trap unopened will last indefinitely.
Once the Pro-Pest Pheronet Traps have been opened, they are active for 4-6 weeks.
No the ProPest Pheronet Pantry Pest Traps are not toxic to humans. They are constructed of cardboard or paper, lined on the inside with a pheromone impregnated glue strip. The insect sex pheromones powerfully attract the male moths, trapping and killing them. Thus, mating is disrupted to the point of eventual control.
Unfortunately, the ProPest Pheronet Pantry Pest Trap is not labeled to be used for carpet beetles. We would recommend using a product like Talstar P. Also vacuuming is th best way to ensure there is minimal food for the larvae to feed on, and helps to remove the larvae and adult beetles already in your home.
ProPest Pheronet Pantry Pest Traps are only going to attract male pantry pests. Rodent mites may feed on humans if unable to find a rodent host, but they will evenually die off as they cannot reproduce without that host. That is why finding and eliminating the source is the first step in treatment. You can try on glueboards that have no attractant such as the Trapper Max Free Glueboards.
