Many of you may remember going into a carpet showroom in the past and
being confronted with that all familiar smell of moth balls. This
wasn't to the choice of the store owner, but to keep away the moths
from the precious rugs. Thanks to advances in pheromone technology,
moth balls are becoming a thing of the past, and a good thing, as many
people debated the toxicity of moth flakes.
The new way to get rid of
those pesky little rug eating insects is to use pheromones inside
of a sticky trap. The vial of pheromones is placed inside of the paper
trap, which is sticky like fly paper, and the insects are lured in from
within 100 feet. These traps are great because the are low profile and
can be placed in drawers, placed on walls, or hung from the ceiling. They are also environmentally friendly, as opposed to the sprays that were formerly used in conjunction with the moth balls. We
have a few hanging around the office and they seem to be doing a great
job. So for anyone who would like to protect their precious invesment from moth damage, these traps are a great way.
