I set up one at each end of the pantry and then do nothing. Over the months the moths accumulate in the sticky trap, Once it is full I toss it and set up another. I'm bad on paying attention to the recommended replacement timing of every three months. I have left them for 6 months and they still seem to work. How do I know they are effective? Before I started using the traps I would find the cocoons of the larvae at the corner of the ceiling and wall of the pantry. I haven't seen one in probably 5 years since I started using the Pantry Pest Traps. I ordered extra and gave them to my kids for Christmas.

Wanted to get some traps asap and heard that this company had a good product for the price, so I ordered right away. They were delivered in no time. Am happy I did.Date published: 2016-10-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Ugud2me from Best on the Market I've used these Safer brand Pantry Pest Traps for many years and they are fantastic. You don't know you need them until after you've used them for a couple of months. Then you take one down from wherever you put it and take a look at all the dead moths inside the trap. When my favorite hardware store decided to carry a different brand, I was shocked to find out these new-on-the-market traps do not come with a lure and even more shocked to learn they don't attract the moths. So I'm now ordering the Safer brand on-line since I can no longer purchase them in the store.Date published: 2016-10-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Northe from Pantry Pest traps do the job Had an infestation of moths. Wasn't sure whether they were clothes moths or pantry moths. Purchased both types of traps, which definitely showed that most were pantry moths, and allowed me to tell where the infestations were centered. Still have a few moths, but most are tiny.Date published: 2016-10-16Rated 4 out of 5 by Johny D from These traps work great!!

Natural & Organic Controls
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.
Why Choose a Natural Solution?
Natural solutions break down quickly to their natural elements. They are preferable to chemical pesticides that leave residuals where they are sprayed causing long-term detrimental effects on the environment.
Some of the best methods of controlling these food pests is through control of the environment that entices the meal 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 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, rugs, 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.
