The Pantry Pest Trap uses a powerful attractant that has a strong effect on certain moths. It has been used in commercial pest control to trap a variety of moths. These include many different species: Indian meal moths, seed moths, raisin moths, almond moths and tobacco moths. All these moths are small and narrow (3/8” to ½”). They vary in color from a coppery brown to a mottled gray. These pests are found world-wide around dried goods and foods, including: wheat, cornmeal, dried fruits, seeds, crackers, biscuits, nuts, powdered milk, dried pet food, bird seed, chocolate, red peppers, tobacco and cocoa beans. Place the trap near the problem area, generally where dried foodstuffs are stored. The moths will find the trap when the trap is placed within ten feet of the infected food source. The lure should last at least three months. Check the trap weekly to determine if it is full or excessively dirty. Discard when full.
