Food mites at home?

The food mite is a small butterfly of about 2 cm. You will find it when you see it fly from the opening of a package of flour, semolina or dried vegetables. The female food mite come to lay directly in the packets. The caterpillars of the food machine produce silky threads that make the foodstuffs unfit for consumption. You will then have to dispose of contaminated food at this point. You can protect yourself by repacking your food in hermetic boxes, jars or vacuum bags. Once the invasion is declared, insecticide treatment is recommended. We offer several natural products to combat food mite: liquid pyrethre-based insecticide, aerosol, sachet, trap, smoke. All means are good to eradicate this insect that can really infester our food reserves.


Why natural insecticides?

Ending up with food mites is one thing, but if you could also preserve your health and your environment, wouldn\'t it be better? Did you know that some conventional insecticide particles remained for several months in your processed parts? Fumigen is the worst because the particles fall on all objects, textiles, parts of the room. Unless you carefully wash each item, you will find yourself inevitably with chemical substances. Opting for natural insecticides will allow both to get rid of food mites but also, by the composition of our products and their low remanence, to continue living in a healthy environment.

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.


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

marie christine H


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.


Très efficace !

Au bout d'une semaine, un des pièges que j'ai mis est déjà couvert !
J'avais acheté 2 paquets, mais je vais devoir en commander à nouveau je pense.

Pièges efficaces contre les mites alimentaires.



très efficace



Aucune bêtes



Plus de petites mites et très simple d utilisation. Qualité prix très raisonnable.


Efficace mais..

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


piège anti mites alimentaire

je met toujours ces pièges régulièrement et j'en suis très satisfaite


mite alimentaire

Très bon produit. Avec mes bocaux de céréales en vrac, j'en ai toujours un lot d'avance.


Peu efficace

Pas grande efficacité chez moi! Je préfère le piège Kapo Vert qui, lui, remplit sa mission.

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.
