Take one or two traps out of the plastic sleeve, fold trap into a triangular trap. Since pheromones are pre-loaded in the glue, it is ready to use! Traps can be hung or can be placed on a shelf.

Work Great, but only for the Male Moths! Aug 30, 2009
We've had problems with Indian Meal Moths for three years now, on and off. We have a parrot, and they first arrived in a bag of seed. Despite repeated attempts of thoroughly cleaning out all of my cabinets, throwing out food and spices, keeping the bird's cage clean, changing his food (and keeping it in the freezer), keeping the dog food in a closed container, vacuuming the ceiling multiple times every day, washing down canned goods, moving out appliances and many other attempts to try to finally get rid of these annoying pests, I am at the point of getting insecticides. These traps are great, with reservations. Yes, when you remove them from the package, you are swarmed, depending on how many moths you currently have, but they only attract the male moths. The females are not attracted. They also do nothing for the worms. There are four cycles to these little buggers: egg, larvae (worm), cocoon, and moth. We suck up those nasty worms constantly with the vacuum (don't forget to change the bag or empty the canister). Don't get the wrong idea, it's not like we have a million of them - they come in cycles. We get worms for a few weeks, with minimal moths, and we suck up maybe 10 - 15 worms in the morning then the same amount after work and a few more here and there during the evening. But we make sure none that we see turn into cocoons. Since we still get more moths, they are obviously turning into cocoons somewhere! Then we see just the moths for awhile, sometimes in fairly large numbers, then they tend to dwindle. Then the whole thing starts up again. We don't see any of them in the winter. At that point, I tear the kitchen & dining room apart and clean like mad, getting rid of all of their favorite foods in the cabinets, but somehow, it doesn't seem to matter, because they come back again every year. So if you have them, these traps are great, but if the infestation has recently started just get on top of it really fast. And get rid of their food source so their life cycle is interrupted. If you can do that, you can get rid of them. That's something I haven't been able to do. They like flour, pasta, cereals, cornmeal, spices, dry pet foods, especially bird seed, dried fruits and flowers (including decorative wall hangings), and even rodent bait, among other things. I have to go online and order more of these pheromone traps now, but I have also decided, reluctantly, after doing some research, to purchase an insect growth regulator (hydroprene - to take care of the worms) and an insecticide (esfenvalerate - for the egg stage). I don't know any brand names and I didn't want to go this far, but I've had enough. My infestation is too long running for just these traps, food source removal and cleaning. I hope you have better luck than I've had! These traps are a great first step, but don't stop here. Get rid of their food and clean, clean, clean!

They work for a time Aug 04, 2009
By R. J. Frere
My pantry moths originated from my birds and have spread from there. These moth traps work great. You must be ready to place the traps prior to opening the package. As soon as the plastic is removed, the moths began swarming around me! The traps do a wonderful job at catching the live moths. In doing so they prevent them from breeding. However, the larvae that have yet to hatch aren't attracted and may never be since the trap can be full and/or the pheromones could be faded by time they hatch. These traps won't work completely unless you buy enough to stop multiple life cycles or completely clean out all of your cabinets, bird seeds and "nesting" sites. Sadly, I've missed some and am starting over again! These are the only traps that I will use in my quest for moth freedom!

Great Product! Apr 04, 2009
By Danny K
Recently my wife and I noticed small white worms crawling on our kitchen ceiling and small moths flying around also. I could tell they were coming from the pantry. I took all the food out and found they were feeding on dog food that had fell into the pantry floor. I went to walmat and bought a food safe insect killer. I soon found these moths leave very small eggs in places you wouldn't believe. Dispite cleaning the pantry and throwing out any food in bags that could contain eggs,and spraying the food safe insect killer the months would still appear, morning or night on the kitchen ceiling or pantry ceiling. At wits end, I removed the molding in the pantry and found eggs there. Next I read the reviews on Pro Pest and purchased 1 package. It comes with a small bag with a red paper attractant which you place in the triangle housing (very easy to do) I set it on the floor and the next morning found 5 moths stuck dead in the trap. 2 moths the next day and 1 moth the following day. I reinstalled the molding placed the food back into the pantry, threw away the trap with the months, installed a new trap on the floor and kept it there just encase. So far its been 1 week with no moths and even if a missed egg hatches, I'm sure the pro pest trap will attract them. Great Product!

This one worked best Nov 29, 2009
By C. Gillis
We've had a problem with pantry moths for almost a year. I bought one kind of trap,and it caught moths, but there were still more flying around the house. We believed they couldn't all have been females. So we bought three different products at a time to test which one worked the best. This one trapped far more moths than the other two combined. I'm no scientist but I think that's because the entire inside of the trap is sticky with pherones instead of one little teeny square on one side of the trap. There's also a bigger opening--those little guys are clumsy fliers. So for our house,this one solved the problem.

really works Aug 17, 2008
This product really works. The moment I got the Pro Pest out of its plastic pack, moths started flying around its periphery. In one night one of the Pro Pest attracted more than 10 moths!
