Directions for How to Get Rid of Moths in the Kitchen:
- Place the pantry moth trap near the problem area (generally where dried foods are stored) including the basement, pantry, kitchen or garage.
- Choose a location where the pantry moth trap will get the most air circulation but will not be damaged by swinging doors or foot traffic.
- The lure for the pantry moth trap should last at least 3 months. Check the pantry moth trap weekly to determine if it is full or excessively dirty.

Review RateGreat solution. Easy to place. Easy to dispose.
I've been using these traps for years... now purchase them by the case... I am amazed how many pantry moth's I catch each time I put a trap out. There are still a few still flying around. I suspect they are the females. Easier to control the situation. I place in the kitchen, and garage.
Review RateThey Work Wonders!
I haven't been let down by a single trap! Sooner or later they fill up, depending on the volume of moths roaming around. I haven't yet rid myself of them, but have cut down DRASTICALLY from coming home to a swarm all over to encountering a few here and there. These horrid things breed like crazy, so it's crucial to have a trap in every room to always be cutting down their numbers.
Review RateThey're GREAT!
In a word, they're "GREAT!" They attract and catch DOZENS of Pantry Moths! I keep reordering them when necessary! They REALLY work!
Review RateGreat items for pantry moths in the valley.Was so happy to find them online. Can't find them at local stores. Great product. Wish I had known they were available years ago!! Even Tupperware does not protect cereal and other dry food products. The Pantry Pest Traps are fabulous.
Review RateThese traps work great!!If you dont take care of these moths they can get out of hand quickly .These traps are your first line of defense! They work great!
Review RateLove the non poisiosous products!My sister in law referred me to safer@brand about out two years ago. I've been hooked ever since!!! The pantry moth traps and insect magnets are my favorites! I recently reordered the moth traps. I get the big batches so I can change them out as needed. I hate any kind of bugs in my house so I put the insect magnets in each corner of a room, it's amazing what it catches! Definitely no more spiders!!!! Recently also used the fungicide spray and it also worked like a charm!
Review RateI was hoping for more
I bought the 16 pack of traps for pantry moths. I had used another brand, and it worked fine, but I saw this and figured I'd give it a try. I set the traps up as directed, and felt hopeful, as we are overrun with so many of those darn moths! I set one up, with bait, and watched a moth fly in walk on the sticky part and fly out. They've been set up about a week, and the four traps I have set up have a total of two moths in them! I don't actually know why these aren't working well. But I will have to use these up ($56 spent), and then buy something that works better. I am very disappointedResponse From Safer Brand®Tara : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateA long term solutionI bought these several years ago when we first discovered the little buggers in our pantry. 4 kids and you accumulate a lot of old snacks. Got busy with both cleaning, elimination, re-sacking any grain or nut or food in plastic zip locks. They (the females) will get into very tiny places and the larvae even tinier. We have called these miller moths as they affect things that the miller once ground, but, .....they are not of that family. They are more aptly put into the weevil type family and grow entirely on harvested and dried grains. I am amazed at what they can get into. Called the Miller Moth (wrongly so, not a Nocturidae) pantry moths, pantry PESTS (with the emphasis on the word PEST) and more accurately Indian Meal Moths. The traps are easy, long lasting and effective. They only attract the males and do so VERY effectively with pheromones (isn't s_x great!) They do a darn good job on them. We have bought them locally for years. Price point is wildly variable so I went to the source, Safer. Great product. we are not so great at pantry management so these help us. Its a generational thing.
Review RateI only use products that actualy work!My title tells all , I had a terrible problem with pantry and closet moths. Nothing worked. I almost gave up, then almost as a last ditch attempt I took the advice of an employee at a hardware store and tried moth traps,It took app.3 months and finally no more flying critters at night. I renew the traps as directed and they seem to catch any new ones that might get into the house in new boxes of cereal ,or in new cloths as eggs or larvae . finally a product that does what it says.
Review RateWorks Perfectly!We've had a constant problem with moths in a pantry. Repeated cleanings never solved the problem. After installing these traps for just over a week, we've caught multiple moths & are seeing a decrease in their number.

Control Options for Meal Moths from Safer® Brand
Pantry Moth Controls in the Home
Moth pheromone traps, often called pantry moth traps, can help in controlling meal moths. Insecticides are not recommended because of the dangers that could result from contact with foods.
Moth pheromone traps, either pantry moth traps or clothes moth traps, can be used to alert you to moth problems and to monitor the level of infestation. Male meal moths are attracted to the pheromone in the pantry moth trap and enter the trap where it is caught and cannot escape.
Pantry moth traps should be placed near the ceiling or area where the meal moths fly. Carefully read and follow all instructions completely for safe and effective use.
At the first sign of an infestation, place a pheromone trap in the home to monitor the level of infestation. Remember for every one male meal moth caught in the pantry moth trap, seven others have avoided it.
Environmental Controls for Pantry Moths
Some of the best methods of controlling these food pests is through control of the environment that entices the meal moth, also called the pantry moth. Observation, sanitation, disposal and proper storage are all ways that help prevent and control infestations.
Observation: Check packaged food to make sure there are no holes or other signs of infestation.
Sanitation: Clean up food and liquid spills. Vacuuming powder and granular spills and any larvae that are present will go a long way in helping to control meal moths.
Disposal: Dispose of any food products if any signs of infestation are present in the food. In lieu of discarding any exposed food that does not show signs of larval entry or infestation, you can use extreme heat or freezing to destroy any undetected moth larvae.
To use the heat method, heat food in a 120-140 degrees F oven for at least 20 minutes. To freeze, place food in freezer for several days. You may want to then sift the product to see if any larva are present and if they have been killed.
Proper Storage: Store loose foods in airtight hard containers. Larvae can eat through plastic storage bags.
Check packaged foods before taking them into your home. Clean up any spills and vacuum cupboards immediately. Dispose of any food products at the first sign of infestation. You can heat or freeze certain food products that have been exposed to an infestation. Place foods in airtight hard containers when you have brought them home from the store.
Indoor Moth FAQs
Q: My “baking” cupboard has tiny moths. How did they get there? How do I get rid of them?
A: They are most likely meal moths (AKA pantry moths) which feast on cereal, flower, seeds, grain, pet food and dried fruit. The adult moths and their caterpillar larvae may have been carried inside your home in groceries. An open window may also be an entrance for an adult moth.
Once inside your home, they seek out food and lay their larvae inside food packages or in cracks and tiny spaces of the food cupboards, resulting in an infestation. Using a pheromone based pantry moth trap, you can readily be alerted to their presence.
To get rid of them, remove any food products and bags from the affected cupboard. Thoroughly vacuum your cupboard and caulk any cracks or similar small spaces of your cupboard. Either discard the contaminated food in a tightly sealed bag or container, or freeze the food for 1 week, thaw for 1 week, then freeze again for 1 week, killing both eggs and hatched larvae. Using our pantry moth traps, you can check if you have eliminated them.

Q: Why are moths attracted to my clothes stored in my closet?
A: It is the larvae of the clothes moths that cause the damage. They feast on clothing, particularly wool and fur clothing. They also eat the fabric of rugs and furniture. The female moth is attracted to clothing that has food stains or perspiration She lays her eggs on the clothing and when they eggs hatch, the larvae feed on the fibers in the clothes.
