About Food Moths

The Mediterranean Flour Moth and the Indian Meal Moth are both common pests in larders, pantries and kitchens across Europe. Our adhesive traps for food moths are an effective solution to preventing new infestations.

Female food moths typically lay around 200 eggs and it is the grubs that emerge from these eggs that cause damage, eating food and contaminating it with their cocoons and excrement. Poor food hygiene is obviously a major attractant to food moths and they typically have 2 to 4 breeding cycles per year where allowed unfettered freedom to breed in the pantry or food cupboards.

If you need more information to help you identify food moths, see our Food Moth Identification Guide.

The food moth traps work in a similar way to the clothes moth traps with pheromone bait to attract the male moths and break the breeding cycle. Locate in your pantry, cupboards or similar locations where food and meal moths and their larvae are found after you have destroyed infested foodstuffs and treated the surfaces of your cupboards and pantry with an effective moth killing spray.
