All About Traps
TERRO® Insect Traps
TERRO® has a variety of non-toxic, pesticide-free traps that can be used to effectively reduce insect infestations.
TERRO® Spider & Insect Traps are an excellent way to capture and kill a large number of spiders and insects. Pesticide-free and easy-to-use, crawling insects are captured by the trap’s sticky surface where they get stuck and die.
TERRO® Pantry Moth Traps contain a powerful pheromone lure that attracts all common moths - including grain moths, flour moths, meal moths and seed moths - to the trap's sticky surface where they get stuck and die.
TERRO® Fruit Fly Traps use a non-toxic, food-based liquid lure to attract fruit flies into the trap. When flies enter the trap, they are unable to escape to continue breeding.

Locate Fruit Fly Breeding Source
The key to successful elimination of fruit flies is to locate their breeding source and place a TERRO® Fruit Fly Trap nearby. Look for fruit fly sources in areas where unrefrigerated fruits and vegetables are stored, near garbage cans and recycling bins.

Store all dry foods in tightly sealed containers. Moths can easily infiltrate boxes and bags of dry food, such as cereal, flour and dry dog food. Keep food pantries clean and free of moth-attracting crumbs and food tidbits.
Throw Away Infested Food
If a pantry moth infestation occurs, place the contaminated food in a sealed bag and throw it away. Moths can't harm canned foods; however, wash the cans because the moths can lay eggs on cans.
Get Out Your Vacuum
A vacuum cleaner is a key tool for cleaning out a pantry moth infestation. Thoroughly vacuum pantries and any areas of your home where pantry moths or larvae have been observed.
Seek Out Spiders
Place TERRO® Spider & Insect Traps in places where spiders like to hide out. Place the traps against baseboards, in corners, and behind doors and furniture. The sticky traps will catch spiders as they roam in search of food. Continuous, long-term use of the traps will reduce difficult infestations.
