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.

Fight against the food moth

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 Kapo 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

- The traps can be placed in all places where foodstuffs are stored: kitchen cupboard, warehouses, attic, etc.

- 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

- Remove the protection from the glued part.

- Replace the trap after 6 weeks or as soon as the surface is covered with insects

Some recommendations

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

- In order to check if you are really infested, place a first trap (between March and September)

- In case of infestation, clean the cupboards well and throw away the soiled foodstuffs if necessary. Close cupboards and storage rooms. This product should not be used in areas where unpackaged food or feed products are kept.

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.
