Moth-Guard® is a revolutionary system to protect our wild bird food products against infestations by Indian Meal Moths and other stored product pests.
We apply small amounts of an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) to all of our bird food products. This IGR has been used extensively for over 30 years in similar applications to control fleas and ticks, and is completely safe for humans and birds. The IGR does not kill the insects; it disrupts the insect’s life cycle development and keeps the insect from becoming a breeding adult. So infestations are greatly reduced.
Bird food remains a perishable item. As with any perishable food item, make sure that the product is used within a reasonable timeframe. Rotate your bird food so the oldest product is used first. Don’t let it sit or it will attract insects and rodents. Also, make sure to store the the product in a cool and dry storage environment.
