Clothes Moths & Carpet Moths are sensitive to certain environments. For your clothes moth traps to work as effectively as possible it’s important to consider the following when positioning them:
We understand that it can be a frustration and feel like an invasion when you have moths in your home - you’ll want them gone immediately! But traps can sometimes take time to attract and catch the adult males. Please consider that if you go around killing the moths in your home you will ultimately reduce available moths to juveniles. Juveniles will not be attracted to your traps until they mature - Killing moths by hand will affect your catch rate and not help you with moth monitoring.
Your traps will help you twofold:
Please keep in mind that traps only capture adult male textile moths. If you have juvenile, female or non-textile moths in your home they will not be attracted to your traps - for this reason it is possible to see moths, but not catch moths.
There may be a lull in the ‘Life Cycle’! Simply put, larvae will only pupate and hatch as moths when the conditions are right! This means that you may see a lot of moths at a point in time, nothing for a while afterwards, and then repeat! This can be influenced by the weather, seasons and how warm your home is.
The moth cycle will slow down during the late Autumn/Fall through to early Spring as the weather gets colder. A reduction in the number of moths caught does not mean that your traps are not working for you - You’ve just monitored a Lull in the Life Cycle!
Importantly, within our cosy homes during winter the weather outside does not always have such an impact on slowing down insect activity. Moth larvae might continue to pupate and hatch as moths from late Fall through to next Spring! For this reason we recommend keeping traps ‘active’ by replacing any old Strips with new Replacement Strips every 3 months.
Allow time, be patient, reposition, monitor, respond.
Unlike other brands our Moth Traps are reusable / refillable! You can use our Moth Trap boxes again and again.
Refills are always readily available, guaranteed to save you money, and mean that you can always have traps in place to protect your home.
Changing your old strips for new ones is quick, simple and clean. And, you can easily recycle your old strips - No plastic and no toxic content to worry about.
Although Moth Traps are vital to breaking the breeding cycle you sadly cannot always remove an established moth infestation with traps alone. Finding holes in your woollens or loose fibres around the edge of carpet is an identifier that you have moth larvae in your home. An established infestation of moth larvae requires a different type of treatment to remove them. We have created our Clothes Moth Killer Kits & Carpet Moth Killer Kits precisely for this purpose. Containing professional grade sprays, powders and our traps they are a comprehensive solution to removing moths, larvae and eggs.
