Moth Trap not working this time
I have been using this product for a few years now and it normally works amazingly well. But, I purchased and set up new trap week ago. Disappointed to find the product has changed from a bait and sticky surface to now a large sticky surface and no bait to lure the moths. I don't believe the sticky surface itself has any bait luring quality to it as it doesn't attract any moths flying around. Made in China hey Hovex, they have omitted the active ingredient and short changed you therefore a waste of time and money for your consumers.
After discovering an infestation I stripped pantry of products & thoroughly cleaned. New products were placed in sealed containers. I left a trap as insurance against another infestation. Haven’t seen anything for 6 months & forgot about the trap. On checking the trap discovered it had caught at least 20 small moths. I immediately replaced it with a new one & will be checking & replacing regularly from now on.
Exceeded my expectations!!
Bought this moth trap only two days ago to put in our pantry and within days it has already caught what seems to be majority of the moths! Highly recommend this product if you’ve got some sneaky lil buggers hiding in cupboards or pantries.
Last time I bought this product it was very effective.
This time I shouldn't have wasted my money. I kill more moths a day with my hands than the trap has caught in a month.
Will not buy this product again.
Not sure what they changed. I did notice the trap itself was different.
Just isn't effective.

It was easy to set up but this product didn’t work and is not working not sure what else to say ! Like I said before last time I bought it worked!!!

Are Quickly Effective
The lure seal foil just opened . A moth came around before I assembled the trap .
Previously only noticed a couple of moths each day.
Two Hours later, seven in one trap, three in the other.
The Hovex pantry moth traps , are quickly effective.
A waste of money and sticky mess
I ran out of my preferred brand and could not get more in store. As a result i purchased Hovex pantry moth traps. Should not have bothered. The first trouble I had was in peeling off the cover over the sticky surface. The adhesive seemed to be oozing out and the product did not have a safe handling area. It got onto my hands and was very difficult to remove. I was extra cautious with the second trap but i had the same problem as with the first. Having placed them in my pantry over a week ago with a pair of my preferred brand of moth traps I we...nt to check how effective they were. No moths have been attracted to either Hovex trap in over a week. Whereas the other brand is covered in dead moths. I am very disappointed that a product available everywhere has failed so appallingly and one that has been very successful is difficult to find. I would not recommend Hovex pantry moth traps as they are a waste of money.

Catches more moths than I expected
My Mum put me on to these and we swear by them. Easy to make up following the instructions - just don't get the sticky stuff under the paper strip you pull off onto your fingers.
Pop it anywhere in your house and forget about it. Check it a few weeks later and you'll be surprised how many of those annoying tiny moths it's captured.
No smell to the bait lures so no issues.
Bunnings have pockets of 2. Wish they were a little cheaper.
Pensioners be warned!
Hello fellow age pensioners.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR 'pension money' ON THIS PRODUCT.
I bought two a couple of weeks ago and not one moth has been trapped; NOT ONE!
In the meantime I have resorted to using an insect spray repellent and 'my hands!'
This product is a RIP OFF at $10 per item.
Useless Hovex pantry moth traps
The only one caught by these traps was me - silly enough to pay over $11 for a bit of three sided sticky cardboard.
After failing to catch any moths overnight in a kitchen where I counted seven on the walls I held the trap above a moth expecting it to be enticed in. Didn't happen. Then I placed the 'trap' completely over a moth on the wall. The moth fluttered onto the sticky side, then flew off.
Conclusion: The trap sides are not sticky enough to catch moths. The bait is ineffective.
On the box it says the bait is "a special moth pheromone (sex lure) that excites male moths." Well maybe all my moths are either female or gay, because they were totally disinterested in the bait.

Hovex Pantry Moth Traps Are Not Effective
I have used Envirosafe Pantry Moth lures over a few years and found them to very effective. However they were not available and I purchased Hovex Pantry Moth Traps and found them to be useless. Caught only 3 moths over several days and when I opened the pantry there were still moths flying around not going near the lure. Waste of money and they are not cheap. I will not be buying them again and would like to be able to get the Envirosafe brand.

Could this product harm a small dog that accidently ate chewed up the tablet and got the sticky paper stuck to her feet and in her mouth?
