Effective Pheromone Moth Traps
Joan placed Able Catch Pantry Moth Trap in her basement pantry.
“We knew our infestation was out of control, but within an hour the trap already had moths drawn to it. Not sure if it was the shape or the lure, but it worked better than the big-box brand I had used for years.” The
shape mattered because Joan had a box of cereal fall over, and rather than crushing the Able Catch, the trap swayed into a triangle that held the cereal box. “the trap wasn’t bothered by the cereal box”
The New Shape of Moth Traps
The Bullseye on the inside of the trap indicates where to drop the pheromone lure chip, but it also speaks to ‘hitting the bullseye’ in trap design. The new Shape , a 4 sided trap (trapezium ) is the result of month of development , trial and error and fine tuning.
Moth Traps have always been triangular, to prevent them from folding onto themselves, but a triangle limits the “Moth Entry Zone” ( MEZ) because of the tight angles.. Able Catch, knew a 4 sided design would increase the MEZ, but a rectangle or square would be too easy to crush. So the a trapezium was tested.. A trapezium is a trapezoid with no parallel sides. In the case of a moth trap, it means that under pressure, the shape deforms into a triangle, which prevents collapse.
Able Catch Moth Traps : Highly engineered, Sensible exterior design, and powerful catch system.
Moth Trap Geometry and design are a separate topic, but the take away here is whether trapezoid, or trapezium, the Able Catch Pantry Pest Trap is the new shape of moth traps.
