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.

Now say goodbye to food moths in your home. This large-format trap is an ecological and effective way to prevent and control infestation by food moths in storage and processing areas.

Principle of operation

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 will attract the male moths which remain stuck on the leaf. Without the male individual, reproduction is halted. This principle is widely used in organic farming for the protection of orchards against butterflies which cause worms in fruit.

Usage tips

Remove the protective film to activate the trap. To be placed or hung in exposed places: pantry, cupboards, food storage places (including for animals), proximity to cereals, dried fruits, etc... You will be surprised at the quantity of moths trapped.

The effectiveness of the trap lasts 6 to 10 weeks, depending on temperature, air movement and its dust load. It will then need to be replaced. Do not place near an open window, or in a draught, or in the sun. The surface coated with glue must be easily accessible to moths and preferably placed horizontally. Experiment to find the right spot. If it's very hot, you risk attracting moths from the outside. Therefore, it is preferable to provide mosquito nets at the ventilation windows.

It is advisable to use the trap throughout the year, as certain factors can accelerate the development of pests (storage in heated places, imported materials, etc.). Unused traps can be stored for up to 1.5 years in a dry, dark place (ideally in the refrigerator).

Parfait

Par méconnaissance du « sujet », les mites alimentaires ont colonisé tranquillement un espace de rangement « ouvert » dans ma cuisine (pas de placards fermés, donc) et depuis plusieurs mois je lutte contre cette infestation... les produits Penn’tyBio, notamment les grandes plaques, attirent vraiment bien les mites. En complément des autres produits (les bombes fumigènes et l’insecticide dilué), c’est vraiment efficace. Il y a encore quelques résistantes, c’est infernal, mais je persévère... Je recommande donc ces produits, en puis ils sont bio...
