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.

La mite alimentaire - Ephestia kuehniellaIf she's not dangerous, food mite is a real parasite. A female can lay up to 200 eggs that hatch in only 3 to 4 days. They delight in flour, cereals, rice, pasta etc. In short, all the dry foods you can store in your pantry. They are even able to pierce thin packaging.

Say goodbye to food mites in your accommodation. This large-format trap is an ecological and effective way to prevent and control infestation by food mites in storage and processing locations.

Principle of operation of this trap
The operation of this insecticide-free trap is very simple: it uses the very fine smell of insects to attract them to a gluing surface. Pheromone (hormone secreted by the female) incorporated in the glue will attract male mites that remain stuck on the sheet. Without the male individual, reproduction is stopped. This principle is widely used in organic farming for the protection of orchards against butterflies that are at the origin of worms in fruit.

 

The + of this food mites trap

+ The amount of mites trapped measures the degree of infestation,
+ Stop reproduction,
+ Action period from 6 to 10 weeks
+ Field of action : 70 m2
+ Offensive for man and pets.


Use and recommendations
Remove the protective film to activate the trap. To be placed or suspended in exposed places: pantry, closets, food storage places (including for animals), proximity to cereals, dried fruit, etc. You'll be surprised at the amount of mites trapped.

The effectiveness of the trap is 6 to 10 weeks, depending on temperature, air movement and dust load. Then he'll have to be replaced. Not to pose near an open window, not in an air current or in the sun. The coated surface of glue should be easily accessible to the mites and placed preferably horizontally. Try to find the right place. If it's very hot, you risk attracting mites from the outside. Therefore, it is best to have mosquito nets aeration windows.

It is advisable to use the trap throughout the year, some factors that can accelerate the development of pests (storage in heated locations, imported materials, etc.). Unused traps keep up to 1 and a half year in a dry and dark place (ideally in the refrigerator).

How do I spot the food machine?

It's dusty and nocturnal insects. It is therefore rare to cross them in the middle of the day. They stand calm and discreet, wings folded on themselves.

Food mites fly and resemble small butterflies of beige, cream or gray night, about a centimetre, malhabiles, moving in zig-zag rather slowly. Their population grows especially in spring, summer and autumn when it is hot (25°).

In if you see to fly in your kitchen sorts of butterflies at night or, if you open a bag of flour you see filaments resembling small silk threads woven by spiders, worms or flying insects: then it is most certainly pyrals, other name of food mites!

 

Additional measures against food mites
- Connect your windows and possibly your mosquito net doors to avoid an invasion of the outside.
- Regularly control your cereals and dried fruits and keep them in hermetic containers.
- Immediately drop any food containing traces of cocoons or insects.
- Check cracks, cracks, back faces of closets, fals and fals, etc.

Composition:Pheromones (sexual hormones), cardboard strips imbibed from an adhesive substance, protective film.

Packaging: 2 traps - format 20 x 18 cm
