Male moths fly towards the scent and are caught in the moth trap. Removing male moths prevents mating and egg laying.

About Spring Star
Since its inception in 1998, SpringStar has researched, developed, manufactured and sold effective, nontoxic and environmentally safe pest control products. SpringStar has designed the most complete line of products available for home and garden. In response to requests from consumers for simple, useful pest control products that contain no poisons, SpringStar is adding more products every year. It focuses solely on products that use nontoxic or low-toxic mechanisms to effectively control pests.
SpringStar is one of very few companies worldwide that is a primary manufacturer and developer of insect pheromone technologies for residential, garden and professional pest control. SpringStar ships nationally and internationally to mass, chain and independent hardware, garden and grocery outlets and to professional pest control companies. The Company is systematically developing new innovative traps, and other pest control products, that cannot be found anywhere else. In its short history, the Company has released more than 50 products and is a leader in developing new pest control technologies.
SpringStar's indoor items fill the gap that will be left by the cancellation of many traditional household pesticides. The EPA's risk assessment for the pesticides diazinon and dursban has lead to cancellation of all indoor residential uses of these and other toxicants. SpringStar has selected BioCare as the brand name for its indoor household pest products, as these products are "biologically-based" and "caring" for the environment.
SpringStar's outdoor brand Oak Stump Farms is represented by its highly effective Yellowjacket and Fly traps. These are sturdy, top-rated products built specifically for outdoor use. Field testing shows the Oak Stump yellowjacket trap catches up to 9 times more than the leading competitor's trap.
SpringStar is the sole licensee of the US Military's Lethal Ovitrap patents, technology and knowhow. This technology is essential to control diseases such as Dengue, Dengue Hemorrahgic Fever, Yellow Fever and Chikungunga. It has a significant global health impact, as over 2 billion people around the globe are at risk for these diseases, millions get sick and 20,000+ people die annually. In 2009 SpringStar received a grant from the Military Deployed War Fighter Protection Program to help commercialize the technology. SpringStar was recently granted a WA State Global Health grant to market and produce these traps, as well as provide additional WA state jobs.
The Company recently released a new bed bug monitoring system, bringing novel, effective technologies to the market ahead of billion-dollar competitors. A provisional patent has been filed to protect this important technology and it has garnered an enthusiastic response from retailers and commercial pest control companies worldwide.
SpringStar was founded by entomologist Michael Banfield, who has spent the greater part of his working life developing pest control products based on insect pheromones and biotechnology techniques. Mr. Banfield's interest in nature and his concern about the unintended effects of pesticides drives the company's goal on giving people simple, effective and economical alternatives to toxic pest control methods. While other organizations merely tried to stop, ban or outlaw legal pesticides, SpringStar focuses on developing alternative products to give customers useful choices that do not rely on poisons.
SpringStar has built in-house manufacturing capabilities that allows high-speed, high quality production, while protecting proprietary processes which maintain its technological advantages. This allows the Company to maintain production costs below off-shore suppliers and creates local manufacturing jobs and products that are "Made in the USA." SpringStar's manufacturing systems have allowed it to enter the export market and compete effectively with competitors whose labor rates are much lower.
