Q. Indian Meal Moths
Help it's an infestation. They are flying around and we can't rid of them. They were in the food pantry and we emptied and cleaned the pantry thoroughly. I put in two Tents to trap them by Springstar Inc. They are still in there even without food. I've discovered them also in the garage which is far from the pantry as well as in my new car that I park in the garage as well. We've kept the food out of the pantry and gone through it thoroughly now for two weeks. Please advise. Would it help to have an exterminator out?
A.   An insecticide with a longer residual is more effective than just a regular glue board. For food handling areas, Pro Citra DL Botanical Insecticide is a botanical-based insecticide thats good for crack and crevice treatment and also spot treatment in both food and non-food handling areas.

If you are looking for a stronger insecticide with heavier chemical content, Cy-Kick Aerosol Spray is also ideal for places like in your car. Do not apply on areas where you will be directly sitting, rather, treat areas like under the car seat or on the flooring of the car.

Also, the 4 Allure Moth Traps will more effectively attract the moths because it includes pheromone and is effective in all areas, especially areas like the pantry that you are concerned about.

Q. Pantry Moth Trap
I wanted something for my pantry. So would be interested in that a the kit for clothes moths.
A.   If there are moths in the pantry near dry food areas, you are probably dealing with a different kind of moth than the clothes moths. The pheromone kit for clothe moths would not be effective. However, the 4 Allure Pantry Moth Trap and also the product Pantry Patrol will be effective.

Customers Testimonials
It is not the fault of PestMall, but my package arrived and was all but destroyed by the carrier/post office.The entire package had been crushed(looked like it was run over by a truck). The bag was split wide open from end to end and half of the contents had been spilled.So it was basically a waste of time and money.
