  • As the name suggests, our Mini-Wasps against Pantry Moths are suitable for combatting all species of pantry moths, including Indian meal moths, cacao moths and Mediterranean flour moths. Indian meal moths are the most common type of pantry moth in the UK and can be recognised by their brown colour and patterned wings. If the moths in your home are a beige-silver colour, you are most likely dealing with clothes moths. To combat clothes moths, we recommend using our Mini-Wasps against Clothes Moths instead. Our Plantura Pantry Moth Traps offer a reliable way to detect a pantry moth infestation at an early stage.

    For a standard-sized kitchen, we recommend using 4 mini-wasp cards. If you store a lot of food (including pet food), have a pantry, or if you have a large kitchen, you will need to use more cards. Each of your 4 deliveries from us will include the number of cards you chose and will be delivered straight to your door. You can also choose to receive only 2 cards per delivery, which is ideal if you have a small kitchen.

    When you order our parasitic wasps, you will receive 4 deliveries at 2 week intervals. Each delivery will contain the selected number of cards. Once you have placed your order, there is no need to reorder - we will take care of the shipping. Orders received by 10 p.m. on Sunday will be shipped that Tuesday. The parasitic wasps come in a reinforced envelope to ensure that the beneficial insects get to your letterbox safely. This also means that our ichneumon wasps can survive a shipping time of more than 5 days without any problems.

    What exactly are parasitic wasps?
    Ichneumon wasps, also known as trichogramma wasps, are tiny parasitic wasps that are practically invisible to the naked eye. These moth wasps can neither sting nor fly and are not related to normal wasps. Ichneumon wasps are the natural enemies of many species of moths. They parasitise the moth eggs and thereby prevent any new moths from hatching.
    Where should I place the parasitic wasp cards?
    Place the moth wasp cards in any infested food storage areas, such as cupboards, drawers and anywhere else you discover moths in food. It is important to also place a card anywhere you store bird or pet food. One card is enough to cover an area of around 1m2. Note: Our mini-wasp cards are odourless and safe for people and pets alike.
    What else should I keep in mind when combatting pantry moths?
    When combatting pantry moths, it is important to dispose of any infested or possibly infested food. Dried flowers and chocolate containing nuts are also often infested by pantry moths. Thoroughly wipe down your kitchen cupboards and store dried goods in airtight containers. When using ichneumon wasps, avoid using chemical control sprays as these also kill the beneficial insects! Also avoid using home remedies against moths, such as lavender, cedar wood or patchouli, as these can impair the wasps' ability to combat the moths.

    Frequently asked questions

    Orders placed by 10 p.m. on a Sunday will be shipped that Tuesday. All orders that we receive after then will be shipped the following week. Note: As parasitic wasps are live products, any orders that have already been dispatched cannot be refunded.

    Our ichneumon cards contain approximately 2000 ichneumon wasps, each in various stages of development. By the time you receive your delivery, the first ichneumon wasps will have just started hatching. Once the next delivery arrives in a fortnight, all the ichneumon wasps from the first delivery will have hatched and will be busy hunting for moth eggs. By shipping a new batch of moth wasps to your door every fortnight, we guarantee the best results and the highest quality of beneficial insects.

    This depends on the type and severity of the infestation. Generally speaking, an infestation is only considered to be controlled once the last surviving moths have laid their eggs. Once these are then parasitised by the parasitic wasps, there will be no new generation of moths. When it comes to a pantry moth infestation, it will take about 8 weeks to be moth-free again. This corresponds to approximately 2 weeks after the fourth and final delivery, provided you have used the beneficial insects correctly and continuously.

    Yes, our mini-wasps are safe for pets!

    After successfully combatting a pantry moth infestation, there will be no more moth eggs present, meaning the parasitic wasps can no longer rely on these as a source of food. This means that once the little helpers have completed their mission, they die and, due to their minute size, literally turn to dust. The ichneumon wasps have no interest in your food either. Once you are done using parasitic wasps, wipe down your cupboards thoroughly with a damp cloth. After this, there will be no traces left of either the parasitic wasps or the moth infestation.

    The following foods are often infested by pantry moths:

    • Baking ingredients (especially those that have been open for a while)
    • Nuts (including chocolate containing nuts)
    • Bird or pet food
    • Dried bouquets

    Unfortunately, food that has been infested by moths must be disposed of. This is especially true for the foods listed above.

      Works really well!

      I've tried to fight these moths for weeks with conventional methods - nothing worked, they multiplied again and again after each short decline. When I heard about the wasps I was skeptical at first. But it actually worked great! Finally we got rid of the plague! You don't notice them at all, or see them. We have a very large pantry and so calculated generously with the amount of "cards". But the investment was worth it - definitely recommended!
