Mini Kitchen Moth Trap
Pest: Kitchen Moth
Species: Ephestia spp., Plodia spp.
Sector: Home & Garden
Packaging: 12 x inner cartons of 2 pairs of traps per outer box
The ready to use (RTU) Mini Kitchen Moth Trap has a triangular (delta) cross section when assembled and is made of laminated card. All three inner faces of the trap are coated with glue to maximise catch. The trap also contains a pheromone lure of liquid appearance that hardens when cooled in production to provide a waxy like deposit on the trap surface. The trap is designed to be stuck to the insides of the kitchen cupboards using the adhesive strip on the rear of the trap; hung up using the euro hook; or free standing when folded.
Three different trap sizes of Kitchen Moth Trap are available; this Mini Kitchen Moth Trap comes as a pair of traps which are perforated down the centre to give 2 small traps. A larger Kitchen Moth Trap is also available in single fold and delta versions.
The ready to use Kitchen Moth Trap is designed to be positioned in and around kitchen cupboards. Male Ephestia/Plodia moths are attracted by the pheromone lure, enter the trap and are caught on the non-drying glue on inner surfaces of the trap.
Fold and carefully separate the traps. Remove the protective paper and then push the tab through the slot to assemble. Ensure the trap location is accessible by moths, avoiding draughty areas. Replace after 12 weeks or when the trap is covered with moths. The traps can be disposed of in the domestic waste.
