Instructions for using Trichogramma insects against food moths

  • The cards with the Trichogramma insects (against food moths) must be used immediately on arrival.
  • Do not use disinfectants, insecticides or a cleaner shortly before or at the same time - that would kill the Trichogramma insects. Neither use fragrance oils or similar chemicals.
The cards against food moths are charged with Trichogramma insects according to the requirements of the customer.

The card contains the variety of Trichogramma insects which is most suitable for use in homes and apartments.
  • The cards must be placed inside the kitchen shelves or in the pantry on the storage racks directly next to the dry food items like rice, flour, coffee, tea, spices and chocolate. Also put cards next to dried flowers and products made of dry straw as well as dry pet food.
The Trichogramma insects in the cards are only effective if the cards are placed in the vicinity of food. That is where the moths will lay their eggs. Normally use one card for one shelve of one meter length or one drawer.

For a period of about three weeks, the Trichogramma micro-insects will emerge from slits at the sides of the cards. Then they will start searching for moth eggs immediately.

About two weeks later you will receive new cards which you should use to replace the old ones.

Since Trichogramma are living micro-insects you cannot store the cards. In case you cannot apply the cards immediately you could keep them at 8-10°C for up to 24 hours.

Our small predators are very sensitive:
  • Do not open the cards, apply pressure on them or squeeze the cards.

There is no need to feed the Trichogramma insects because they only eat moth eggs.

To ensure that the application is successful, you have to use the cards with the Trichogramma insects over a period of 8 weeks. You will receive 4 deliveries at intervals of about 2 weeks. This is equivalent to the life cycle of the moths from egg to adult moth.

If you want to make sure that the Trichogramma insects emerge from the cards, you can carefully place a drinking glass upside down over a card. After 1-3 days, you will see the tiny Trichogramma insects inside the glass looking for an exit. Do not forget to free the Trichogramma insects immediately inside a kitchen cabinet!
