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.

plus-produit.pngESSENTIAL POINTS TO REMEMBER

case-a-cocher.jpgSystematic trapping of food moths
case-a-cocher.jpgInsecticide-free and odourless
case-a-cocher.jpgNo risk to your foodstuffs
case-a-cocher.jpgComposed of pheromones and natural glue

The principle of this trap : the pheromone

La mite alimentaire - Ephestia kuehniella

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 spreads in the atmosphere and inevitably attracts the male moths which seek to mate. These then remain stuck to the sheet. Without a male, reproduction is stopped. Obvious, but terribly effective!

This method offers a considerable advantage in greatly slowing down the proliferation of moths.

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

This method makes it possible to assess the degree of infestation and to resort to the appropriate treatment.

Advantages of this food moth trap

+ Effectively fights food moths
+ Safe for your food
+ Odorless
+ Natural, ecological (without insecticide).
+ It can be placed anywhere in the house
+ Effective for about 8 weeks
+ Can be hung, folded (triangle) or laid flat

Limits of the trap

- It can only eliminate male moths.

- It can attract other male moths that are outside your habitat.

- Requires time for the total disappearance of the colony.

Usage tips

Place or hang the trap in the most exposed place (pantries, cupboards, food storage areas, near cereals, dried fruits, etc.). You will be surprised at the amount of moths trapped, which you had not noticed before (because they fly at night). To limit the sight of a sticky strip covered with dead and stuck insects, you can use this same trap, but supplied with its cardboard support: see here.

Our advice Penn'Ty Bio

- 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 food likely to be infested in airtight jars then install 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.

Its composition

Pheromones (sex hormones), strips of cardboard soaked in an adhesive substance, protective film.

Conditioning

 Each package includes 3 or 5 traps of 20 cm x 6 cm (depending on the version you choose when purchasing).

Certificate

je suis envahi de mites alimentaires. J'ai installé plusieurs pièges, je nettoie régulièrement mes placards encore des mites. Cet été je pensais que c'était dû à la chaleur en ce moment ce n'est plus le cas. Je surveille régulièrement.

Le film protecteur est parfois très difficile a décoller. On s'en met plein les doigts, sauf a utiliser des pinces. Un produit périmé ?

Efficace

Je l'utilise depuis plusieurs années. Au printemps, dès que je vois arriver les premières mites j'installe des pièges. J'en mets 2 ou 3 dans ma cuisine, proche des zones qui les attirent. Je suis toujours surprise de la quantité de mites attrapées alors que je pensais en avoir beaucoup moins. A chaque fois que j'ai utilisé ces pièges, j'ai stoppé leur développement et je n'ai plus été envahie, contrairement à de nombreuses personnes de mon entourage. Ca ne marchait pas aussi efficacement avec les pièges d'autres marques.
