Trap Types: NS – NoSurvivor Indoor and Outdoor, AB - All Beetle Trap, PP – Pantry Patrol, LL – Low Lying Trap (Could include Flat Traps, Sanitrap, Serrico Traps, Trapper Monitor Traps etc.) HR - HIRESIS

Pantry Patrol contains a food grade oil which attracts numerous food pest beetles for a period of 3 months or more depending on temperatures present, as well as containing the pheromones for cigarette beetle, warehouse beetle, flour beetles, and the Pyralid moth complex.
This product combines a food attractant to extend the attractiveness of the trap beyond the life of the pheromone.

Shelf Life: The “weeks” shown in the above table represent the amount of time each lure remains effective in the trap after it has been removed from its original package. If unopened, and refrigerated, the lures should remain effective for a period of 2 years. 1 year if kept at room temperature.

Please Note: The information contained in this sheet is based on typical temperature, humidity and wind conditions in the Midwest United States . Environments with extreme heat, low humidity and high winds will effect pheromone and trap performance and longevity in a negative manner.
