Use the Hide Beetle Kit to determine the scope and nature of hide beetle infestations. Kit includes ten hide beetle pheromone lures and ten pesticide-free flat traps designed to monitor and capture hide beetles. Hide beetles (Dermestes maculatus) feed on dried museums specimens, animal skins, silks and food, and they can be especially damaging to natural history and textile collections. Place flat trap in areas prone to infestation. Flat traps allow these collection pests easy entry. Monitor frequently. Once you've identified an infestation, sanitation, inspection and removal of infested material are all critical.
  • 10 hide beetle pheromone lures
  • 10 pesticide-free flat traps
  • 3-4 traps recommended per 1,000 sq. ft. for small areas; place traps every 25-50 ft. on a grid pattern in large areas such as storage facilities
  • Refrigerate unused monitors to insure freshness
