Food moth traps with pheromones – Aries
Check out the Aries Rechargeable Food Moth Monitoring Trap. The principle ? an insecticide-free and odorless strip that uses pheromones to attract moths, with a sticky part that sticks small insects. Support supplied with 3 traps.
Principle of operation of this trap
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.

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.
