The Safer Brand Pantry Pest Trap
Protect Your Dry Foods From Moth Destruction
The Safer Brand Pantry Pest trap lures and traps meal moths, grain moths, flour moths and seed moths that infest kitchen cupboards, dry food pantries and other food storage areas. This safe and hassle-free system helps pinpoint breeding moths and feeding larvae so you can quickly and effectively get rid of an infestation.
Easy-to-Use Traps Provide Weeks of Protection
The Pantry Pest Trap features a convenient triangular shape that easily fits into hard-to-reach nooks and corners. Equipped with two traps and two time-released pheromone lures, this natural pest control solution offers 400 sq. ft. of cost-effective coverage that lasts up to three months.
How it Works
- Time-released pheromone lure attracts adult males
- Moths enter trap and stick to the glue inside
- Trapped moths indicate a potential infestation
- Eliminating adults helps break the breeding cycle
How it Works
Drop Lure into Trap
Open lure packet and drop pheromone chip into the hole on the bottom of trap. Lure will stick to the glue inside.
Position Trap in Vulnerable Area
Place the baited trap in areas where dried foods are stored, like cupboards, garages and basements. Ensure the trap receives ample air circulation while remaining undisturbed from swinging doors and foot traffic.
Replace Every 12 Weeks
Monitor traps on a weekly basis, replacing them once they’re full or after 12 weeks of use.
Pantry moth larvae contaminate pantry foods during the feeding process. Identifying adults is the first step in targeting and eradicating these destructive larvae.
About Pantry Moths in Your Home
Identification, Habits and Behaviors
Adult pantry moths are approximately 3/8 inch long with distinctive markings on their brown-bronze wings. The cream-colored larvae have dark brown heads and feed on stored foods until they develop enough strength and nourishment to spin their cocoons.
From eggs to adults, all stages of pantry moths can be found in your home. Females lay their eggs near food so the larvae can nourish themselves as soon as they hatch. Larvae feed on dry foodstuffs for up to 6 weeks before constructing a cocoon – usually in the edges and corners of cabinets. Typical foods larvae feed on include:
- cereals, grains, rice and pasta
- flours and meals
- dried fruits and dehydrated vegetables
- candy and chocolate
- nuts and seeds (including bird seed)
- dry pet food

2. Eradicate Adults

4. Sanitize Surfaces
Thoroughly vacuum, scrub and sanitize all surfaces – including reusable containers and cookware – that may have been exposed to the infestation.

I have had great results with this product. Those who say they work for a while and then quit need to remember that the traps are only meant to catch flying stages of the insect. I use these traps once or twice a year, whenever I see a moth or two, once the infestation problem has been solved.
1) Use Pantry Pest Traps to eliminate all ADULT moths.
2) Next, go on a larva hunt (in the early stages they look like caraway seeds -- dark little crescent shapes about 1/8" long). Check all the food in your cabinets. Take it all out. Anything can house larva. Look in the flour, cereals, boxes, bags, anything with a seam or crevice. Think like a mother -- she is trying to hide her young so that they will survive!
3) We have a pantry cabinet with adjustable shelves. When moths kept coming back, I got a flashlight and discovered that there was larva in every single hole for the shelf brackets. Swabbing the holes with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol produced mixed results, so I finally placed a piece of tape over each hole. If the larva survived the alcohol, they starved to death in their little cell.
Using this method, I buy traps when moths come in with the groceries. I use canvas shopping bags that I wash every now and then so that the bags from the store (especially paper bags) don't bring in larva.
Today, the product is already folded into a triangular house for the moths to fly into. The interior is coated with adhesive so the moths become trapped after entering the house. Users must removed a pheramone-infused tab from a sealed package, then insert the tab into a slot to get it inside the housing. But almost always, the tab falls out of its intended spot and is stuck to the interior. I've used it this way and it seems to work fine, but the manufactuer can help users by making three changes in the way they package the product.
1. make the little pheramone-infused tab already correctly positioned and attached to the interior so that users don't have to open the sealed package and handle the tab.
2. They should cover the whole item, including the sticky paper, with wax paper, score where the folds go, and indicate how to fold it into the housing shape. Then users would just have to peel the whole wax sheet off to expose the sticky paper and the pheramone tab, fold it up, and voila, done!
This way, the manufacturer can also save on packaging by shipping the items in a flat envelope rather than a mostly empty box.
3. Make the sticky housing attachable to something so it doesn't knock around my pantry. This can be as simple as a hole to hang it on a nail, or a weak adhesive like that used on Post-it notes to attach the trap to a wall.
It is compltely ineffective. Moths fly all aroound the pantry. infest boxes of food, and never go near the trap. If you trap a moth in there yourself, it doesnt stick to the glue, and flies right back out.
I have made this known to the Safer mfg. co. as soon as they changed the bait but they have done nothing.We have wasted about $100 on these traps in the past year. Have found nothing to replace it since other companies are using the same kind of bait.
