The Flour and Pantry Moth Trap attracts and captures adult moths such as Indian meal moth, Mediterranean flour moth, almond moth and raisin moth. These insects occur almost everywhere, and are attracted by grains, flour and pastas. The moths lay eggs in cracks and crevasses near food, such as in shelving, cupboards and pantries. Adult moths emerge and fly about seeking mates. The Flour Moth Lure uses the same chemical messenger (pheromone) that female moths use to attract male moths for mating. Male moths are drawn by the scent and are caught in the trap. Removing male moths prevents mating and egg laying.
