The Birdseed Moth Trap by Spring Star 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 birdseed. 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 Birdseed 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 moth trap. Removing male moths prevents mating and egg laying.
Long-term use of the Birdseed Moth will reduce troubling infestations without the use of toxic chemicals. Place moth traps near where moths have been seen. The moth traps are disposable and extremely effective and safe around food products. Replace moth traps every 3 months or sooner if full of moths. Use two traps at a time; they will cover up to 2500 square feet. Using more than two traps at a time tend to confuse the male moths making the traps less effective. Box contains two traps.
Note: This trap is for birdseed moths. This lure will not attract Clothes moths. You will need to use the clothes moth trap to take care of those moths.
