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.

Fight against the food moth

Kpro Green food moth trap

Food moths (also called food moths or moths) are tiny lepidopteran butterflies listed under several subspecies based on their preferred food.

The most common mites in our regions attack, depending on the species, dry foodstuffs : cereals, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, dried fruits, pasta, semolina, chocolate products, tea, spices, animal feed, etc.

At the time of reproduction, females secrete an odorous substance (called a pheromone) which attracts males. It is precisely this principle that the Kpro trap uses. Thanks to a synthetic pheromone integrated at the level of the encolated part, the trap attracts the males who remain prisoners of the encolate part and can no longer fertilize the females. The risk of a new infestation is then greatly reduced.

The principle

- Male moths are attracted by a sex hormone (pheromones) die stuck on the trap.

- Without a male, reproduction is stopped, the risk of a new infestation is then greatly reduced.

How to use these traps ?

- The best time to use these traps is from March to September

- Arrange 1 trap per cupboard, 2 or more for large volumes

- Hang or secure the trap vertically on the bottom wall of the cupboard or near the food storage area

Some recommendations

- The presence of winged moths in the kitchen or the deterioration of food are signs of infestation (zigzag flight).

Parfait

Piège à mites qui se colle facilement sur la porte intérieure du placard de cuisine, afin de récupérer les mites alimentaires dès leur premier envol. Grande surface pour attraper un maximum de mites. Sans odeur, chouette ! Attention : la surface collante colle énormément (tant mieux pour les mites), donc il vaut mieux éviter d'y coller un doigt ou ses cheveux par mégarde...

Parfait

J'utilise les pièges à mites depuis assez longtemps !
Malheureusement le problème ne vient pas que de chez moi !
Rapportant des courses du super marché et en les rangeant, dans un pli de paquet, je me rends compte de la présence d'un papillon mite.
Vous devriez proposer vos produits aux grandes surfaces !!!
Très efficace, néanmoins. Merci.

Adieu les mites

Ces plaques sont bien efficaces et attirent les mites pendant plusieurs semaines

Très efficace

Quatre pièges répartis dans ma cuisine (face interne des portes de placards) permettent de contrôler le problème - ce qui n'est déjà pas si mal! -, sans le supprimer... d'où la nécessité de renouveler les pièges régulièrement (2 fois par an).
Plus chers, et sans doute d'une composition moins naturelle, que les pièges Aries, mais nettement plus efficaces chez moi.
