I set the baits late this afternoon, I just checked them then and already there are at least 25 moths trapped that I counted. I can't believe it!
Very timely thread, i have just spent the last hour tossing out my moth infested rice in the pantry and cleaning it out. So gross!
I didn't throw out all the open stuff (dried noodles, grains etc) bc I thought they looked ok but reading this thread I guess I better. Will need to buy those traps and bay leaves too.
I've got moths in my lounge room and scattered throughout the house. DF and I have been vacuuming them up but they keep reappearing.. They seem to be hanging around my bird, which leads me to believe they're eating his food.. Vacuuming them up doesn't seem to be having the desired effect, do you think the bay leaves will work in a larger area? They're driving me nuts!
He + Me, in October there'll be 3 <3
When I had a moth infestation I ended up having to chuck out pretty much anything that wasn't in a can. I couldn't believe they could get into sealed containers and unopened packets. It was crazy. I had to waste so much food which was so frustrating. I put it all in thick black bags and threw it all out then took everything else out of the pantry and gave it a really good clean.
I also couldn't believe how fast they can reproduce and get into stuff. We had only been in that house around 2 months and I had only noticed the moths flying around a week or so before. It was actually SO disgusting the amount if stuff they had gotten into! I had all these (sealed) containers of dried fruit and they were ALL through them with their eggs and cobwebby stuff ughhh it was so gross.
I found a couple of larvae in some rice and spent hours cleaning the pantry (it had been a loonnngg time since last done) and didn't find another larvae. It was pretty disgusting just to find one. I'm going to try the bay leaves too.
I just bought the traps from woollies. Gee they are expensive ! 2 in a pack for $12.
Any cheaper ones out there that work?
I'm wondering if they're coming in from bird seed
