Used for years!
Keep those grain moths under control with this easy to use trap. You still will need to clean your food storage areas to find out the source of what is attracting them or feeding them. Invariably these pests find their way into things such as rice, cereal, corn meal, nuts, or many other things.
Having a trap tells you they are near. You can tell how effective your job of cleaning your food storage areas, by how well the number of trapped insects goes down. If you have an increase of trapped pests, you know you have a food storage source of pest food problem.
If they have a choice of either eating or reproducing, they mostly choose the later(the trap) and DIE!

These little Moths are horrible and can be in the larval stage a long ...
Works well. Attracts the males to break the breeding cycle. I have also caught stink bugs and other pest in it. These little Moths are horrible and can be in the larval stage a long time, even years. Even if you have polyester clothes in your closet that are not clean, they will go after the spilled food, your hair, and body oils. They are attracted to the keritin so that is why they are bad with wool, silk, leather, feathers, etc. anything organic in clothes and oriental carpets. So you think they are gone and then you see one flying around. Once infested, it is a process to get them under control. Vacuum well your closets, crevices, fronts and backs of carpets (you may see a spidery web on the back and corners of your carpets - that is them!) wash and clean everything and even put in garbage bags and freeze for 3 months. Some things are so bad you just have to throw away or burn. These traps help tremendously to maintain the war against them. I still see them now and again, but I have no further damage to my clothes and carpets. I think I see the females looking for love, but their men are trapped.

which is nice if you are concerned about your health and that ...
Works exceptionally well to catch small pantry moths. The traps continue fill up even after they have been used for six months or more. I've even bought new traps and added them to the old ones already in place for a year. But to truly eradicate pantry moths you must eliminate their food source (rice, herbs, pet treats, etc), so eventually I began to use these traps in conjunction with glass clamp jars (Bormioli Rocco Fido) for food/pet food storage. You can buy jars and get free shipping at BTA-MALL. You need to look for free shipping if you don't have Prime, but it's there. Key is to "eliminate the food source" of pantry moths and they will disappear and these traps will certainly expedite the process. After three or four years of using these traps, I added the glass jars to the regiment, and no more moths! It has to be a concerted effort. This method of glass storage and these traps will work for you too, and you won't have to hire a professional exterminator/use toxic chemicals ($250+/-), which is nice if you are concerned about your health and that of your pets.

Works, but might need a few
I've ordered these a few times, and they always end up full of moths, I just wish they worked a little faster. We seem to have more moths every time we think we've gotten rid of them. This summer we're planning to order these in bulk and lock the house down for a week. They are effective but if the moths get established they are a real pain to deal with.

Will solve your pantry moth woes, whether you've just discovered 1-2 moths or have a full-on infestation
I've had the misfortune of having pantry moths twice. The first time, I didn't realize what they were at first. I bought these and caught a disgusting amount of moths and it solved my problem.
This second time, years later, I caught one sneaking out of a recently purchased bag of rice. Remembering the trouble from last time, I bought these right away and nipped that problem in the bud. I caught 3 adults and haven't seen any new ones in weeks.
Note: It goes without saying that you should throw away any flour/rice/grains where you've discovered these nasty things. Bag them up and take them out to the trash immediately. Their larvae have been living/pooping in your food, and even if you get past that, that's where they lay their eggs.

OMG YOU GOT MOTHS!!! These little Moth traps really work and get the job done!!! RECOMMEND
One day we noticed little moths soaring around our house and to our dismay discovered that we had PANTRY MOTHS!! EEEK
Turns out the little devils came in some bird seed and then got into all kinds of other grains etc.. Unfortunately we had to throw away a bunch of rice and crackers and other food and then we realized that we had better get on top of the problem quickly. We put up these pantry moth traps and within hours we were catching them. They multiply quickly and hide in the tiniest places. These things WORK!!! It will require a little other work such as tossing contaminated food and deep cleaning.. But they work good and for weeks. I recommend!!!!

I was very skeptical at first. The pheromones work very well. there were very few meal moths flying and a a few that were idle. after I opened the packaging, before I even open the pheromones packages, all of a sudden there were so many meal moths flying rapidly everywhere. I hadn't seen that many in days. so before the pheromones were even out of the package, it was attracting them. now i know that the pheromones only attract the male moths. but I must have had majority male moths, because it seemed like it attracted all of them. after I placed one pheromone square in the trap, i handled a package. I guess the remnants of the pheromones that was on my finger must have lingered and transferred to the package, because there was a moth on the package for several minutes. If for nothing else, you should get this product for the pheromones and maybe use them on a different trap (like sticky fly ribbon traps.)

It works, but it's not immediate
At first I was skeptical because I had the trap out for a few days, but nothing happened. Then I lost interest and did not check it for a week, and it caught 2 moths. And it's been working since. I think I have about 6 or 7 moths in the trap. So it's working, just doesn't seem like it's immediate. But it's good to have so that you don't have pesky moths in the kitchen.

They work - but won't solve your problem entirely
These traps work to kill male pantry moths, but note that they alone will NOT solve you pantry moth problem. The only way to do that is to clean out your pantry and examine absolutely everything in it for evidence of the moths (and throw it out when you find infestation). This includes checking under the seams or in the crevices of packages, where larvae often hide. Note that pantry moths can somehow get through thin plastic into unopened bags (for example, we had a bag of flour tortillas that was unopened and we found a tiny hole in the bag and lots of moth larvae inside). Once you've cleaned out the pantry and disposed of moth-infested goods, set a couple of traps to check on whether you got everything. Larvae will also hide in any crevices or wood or elsewhere, so even if you clean everything out some may emerge afterwards.

Don't forget to look inside package for the attractant, it can easily be overlooked
Search your cupboards first, inside flour, rice, nuts, dog food, cat food, and when you have completely found where these pantry moths are breeding and eating, then put up these traps to kill the last ones. READ instructions because there is a red small square inside that a lot of people DONT see that has to be opened and put INSIDE the trap, which is an attractant. I have my friend one who has them, he set them up and didn't see it, threw out the box and said they didn't work. I asked him about the attractant and he had no idea it was in the package, so be sure to LOOK inside to find it or these won't work.
