We are proud to announce a new additional to our product line, the XLure F.I.T. - Fabric Insect Clothes Moth and Beetle Trap Kit from J.F. Oaks, manufacturer, importer and exporter of Professional Pest Control Products.  The Xlure Fabric Insect Moth and Beetle Traps contains four (4) powerful pheromones formulated specifically for monitoring and capture of the following fabric insects, Webbing Clothes Moth (Tineola Bisselliella) the Common Clothes Moth, Casemaking Clothes Moth (Tinea pellionella), Black Carpet Beetle (Attagenus unicolor) and the Varied Carpet Beetle (Anthrenus verbasci). All of these pest can cause serious damaged to carpets, furs, upholstery, wool and woolen fabrics, leather, silk and other fine fabrics. When activated, the trap works by releasing pheromones which are airborne molecules that trigger a certain response in the insects. The pheromones attract males before they have a chance to mate with the females thus reducing the overall population. The pheromones are released at a steady rate over a 6-8 week period. Male moths enter by keyholes on the upper surface of the trap, while the beetle species crawl up the trap’s rough surface which replicates the crack-like harborages they prefer. Moths and beetles land in the layer of glue that lines the bottom of the cartridge and die. Please check regularly. Each Fabric Insect Traps Kit - contains 5 plastic traps and 5 lure cartridges.

 

How to Activate the XLure F.I.T:   Peel the aluminum foil from the cartridge. Push the cartridge onto the bottom of the trap to form the base. Place the trap on the floor of the potential area of infestation.  

Examine the trap at regular intervals. Once full with insects, replace the cartridge with a fresh one. Replace cartridges every 6 – 8 weeks.   Each cartridge is effective for 6 - 8 weeks. Dispose of used cartridges away from the monitoring area.

Use one trap in every room of suspected infestation or space at 27 – 33 feet intervals (8 -10 meters) .

Xlure-FIT can be used anywhere, including public places and also dark, undisturbed areas where larvae often feed; homes, offices, apartments, museums, feather and carpet manufacturers; anywhere these insects are present.

 

STORAGE OF UN-USED TRAPS:    For storage up to, but not longer than 6 months, store where temperatures do not exceed 60oF (20oC )

For storage up to, but not longer than 12 months, refrigerate or store where temperatures do not exceed 50oF (10oC )

For storage 24 months and up, freeze at temps between 32oF - 40 oF (4o C- 0oC )

 

HANDLING:    Handle traps and replacement cartridges carefully. Do not handle traps or cartridges after tobacco use. To avoid degradation/contamination of pheromones, avoid extensive contact with hands.
