Moth Traps : FAQs and Guide

Locate Traps Near Activity

The best way to trap the indian meal moth is to place the moth trap and lure near the young moths. That means placement in pantry areas near where infested food has been found.

Check Traps Weekly

Moth control is not an overnight project. Yes, many reviews tell you that indianmeal moths came from the pantry and flew into the traps as they were being set, but that really only happens in extreme infestations.

Most of the time, checking the trap once a week for activity and over crowding is enough.

Replace Moth Traps every 90 Days

For maximum effectiveness you will need to replace moth traps and lures every 90 days, or when the trap is over crowded with moths.

Once the infestation is under control, its a good idea to maintain a sentinel moth trap. Locate the trap in the back of your pantry , and replace it every 90 days…
