What are food moths ?

Food moths are small flying insects that can become real invaders in our kitchens. Also known as food moths, they belong to the Pyralidae family and are attracted to a variety of stored foods, such as cereals, flour, dried fruit, nuts, spices and even chocolate. Food moths can become a source of frustration in our kitchens by contaminating our food and causing economic losses. By adopting simple preventive measures and acting quickly in the event of an infestation, you can keep your kitchen clean and free from these unwanted pests.

 

Food moths in your home ?

The food moth is a small butterfly measuring around 2 cm. You can spot them if you see them flying around as soon as you open a packet of flour, semolina or pulses. Female food moths lay their eggs directly in the packets. The caterpillars of the food moth produce silky threads that make the food unfit for consumption.

At this stage, you will need to throw out contaminated food. You can protect yourself by repackaging your food in airtight tins, jars or vacuum bags. Once the invasion has been declared, insecticide treatment is advisable. We offer several natural products to combat food moths: pyrethrum-based liquid insecticides, aerosols, sachets, traps and fumigants. Any means is good for eradicating this insect, which can really infest our food supplies.

 

Why use natural insecticides ?

Getting rid of food moths is one thing, but wouldn't it be even better if you could also protect your health and the environment ? Did you know that some particles of conventional insecticides remain in your treated rooms for several months? Fumigants are the worst because the particles fall back onto all the objects, textiles and surfaces in the room. Unless you wash each item thoroughly, you'll inevitably end up with chemical substances. Opting for natural insecticides will not only get rid of food moths, but also, thanks to the composition of our products and their low persistence, ensure that you can continue to live in a healthy environment.

Principle of operation of this trap

Pièges anti-mite alimentaire Aries

The operation of this trap without insecticide is very simple: it uses the very fine sense of smell of insects to attract them to a sticky surface. The pheromone (hormone secreted by the female) incorporated into the glue attracts the male moths which remain stuck on the leaf. Without the male, reproduction is stopped. This method offers a considerable advantage in greatly slowing down the proliferation of food moths.

This principle is widely used in organic farming for the protection of orchards against butterflies which cause worms in fruit.

The pheromone spreads through the atmosphere and inevitably attracts male moths looking to mate. They are thus no longer available for reproduction and this greatly slows down the proliferation of moths.

Advantages of this food moth trap

+ Actively fights food moth
+ Odorless
+ Natural, ecological (without insecticide)
+ 12 weeks of action
+ Food safe, non-toxic
+ It can be placed anywhere in the house

Usage tips

Remove the 3 sticky strips from the cardboard backing. Take a strip and remove the protective film, then put it back in the cardboard support: the sticky surface must be on the cardboard side with the holes. Then place the support near the infestation area: the duration of action of the trap is about 12 weeks. Put the other 2 strips in the fridge. Store the other 2 traps provided in the refrigerator. Once the trap is full, replace the sticky strip. When the 3 strips are used up, you can only take back the refills, either in batches of 3 or 5 traps : see here.

Our bonus tips against food moths

- Equip your windows and possibly your doors with mosquito nets to prevent an invasion from the outside.

- Regularly check your cereals and dried fruits. Put foods likely to be infested in airtight jars and place them in the refrigerator. Switching to cold will eradicate food moths as they cannot tolerate low temperatures.

- Immediately discard any food containing traces of cocoons or insects.

- Check gaps, cracks, back sides of cupboards, false ceilings and false floors, etc.
