Is it OK to use Nuvan Prostrips in a Kitchen pantry?

I have a nasty pantry moths infestation to control and they seem to be everywhere in the cabinets storing dry food. All salvaged food is in airtight containers now, but there are larvae in many appliances and crevices of the furniture: can I use the Nuvan Prostrips for this?


Nuvan ProStrips can be placed in a closet, however the closet would have to remain closed for at least 2 weeks.  If you will be opening the closet then it will not work because the vapor will constantly escape.  We would recommend using our pantry pest kit which has a crack and crevice aerosol tool to get around shelving and baseboards where the larvae are hiding, and it also has pheromone traps for the adults that are flying around.
