Caught only one moth in two traps
MothPrevention's Reply:
Thank you for your feedback on our Clothes and Carpet Moth Traps. If you have only caught one moth so far that could be good news and means that you do not have an infestation, but it could also be that it is due to where the moths are currently in their breeding cycle and therefore active adult moths are not flying around at this time. The Traps are active for 12 weeks after opening so we would suggest that you keep the Traps in place so that you can monitor for any further activity. Best wishes Amanda

Thank you for your 4 star feedback on our Clothes and Carpet Moth Trap Refills. Our Moth Traps are produced using a non toxic German pheromone which only attracts the sexually active adult male moths. They will not attract female moths, or young moths. The capture of the male moths will help break the breeding cycle while giving you an indication of the size of your moth infestation. Our MothPrevention website carries all the information about how the Traps work (please see Product Details) and our blogs give you further information on how to deal with a Moth Infestation, including advice on cleaning your home. https://www.moth-prevention.com/blogs/the-art-of-prevention/how-to-get-rid-of-moth-larvae If you are catching a lot of moths in a relatively short space of time it may be that you need to consider one of our Moth Killer Kits.

The product was easy to set up—so2 stars for ease of use. However, after more than a week I still see the occasional moth flying around and haven’t caught a single one in the traps. I’ve seen a moth actually fly past the trap! Trying to figure out my next step. Will leave the traps out for another week and if no success, will hire a professional.
MothPrevention's Reply:
We are sorry to hear you have not caught any moths yet. There are a number of reasons why this might be happening: 1. Our Traps attract the active adult males and catch the following types of moth: - Webbing Clothes Moth (otherwise know as the Common Clothes Moth) - Case Bearing Moth (otherwise know as the Case Making Moth) - White Shouldered House Moth - Brown House Moth It could be that you have a species of moth present that is not one of the above. 2. It could be related to their breeding cycle, meaning that the females are more apparent at this time or that the males are not yet sexually active and attracted to the pheromones on your traps (meaning they’re not seeking out females either!). 3. It may be the case that your traps need to be repositioned. Please make sure that they are not in a draft or in in direct light. Also, if you are using any repelling products such as cedar wood, please move them to the other side of the room. 4. You mention that you are only seeing the “occasional moth”. If this is the case, any of the above points as well as only having a few moths will result in a low catch rate. Please be reassured that our traps will catch adult male Clothes Moths & Carpet Moths. Please leave them in place and take comfort that they are confirming you do not have many/any adult male Clothes Moths or Carpet Moths flying at this time.

Thank you so much for your 5 star feedback on our Clothes Moth Traps.

I decided to buy these more expensive traps because of the great reviews. They must work well for the most part, but mine have now been up for their 3 months, and between the 3 of them they managed to catch one pantry moth. If that meant I could rest easy knowing I must not have moths, that would be great news. Unfortunately, it's just not the case, I still clearly have an on going moth problem. I gave two stars because they shipped, and were received very quickly.

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately you have been using the wrong traps so far. If you wish to catch Pantry Moths you will need to purchase our Pantry Moth Traps, not our Clothes Moth Traps.

Product Details

The MothPrevention® Moth Trap is a natural, non toxic and safe pheromone sticky glue moth trap with advanced pheromones to monitor and control infestations of Clothes Moths and Carpet Moths

Unlike many other brands of Clothes Moth Trap & Carpet Moth Trap that have a simple sticky glue strip and small pheromone 'tablet' to be placed near by, our MothPrevention® Moth Trap has a blend of 3 natural female moth pheromones impregnated into the entire glue surface of the sticky moth traps to catch moths. This makes the catch rate for this moth trap impressive

Types of Moths attracted to this moth catcher trap:

  • Webbing Clothes Moth, otherwise know as the Common Clothes Moth (Tineola bisselliella)
  • Case Bearing Moth, otherwise know as the Case Making Moth (Tinea pellionella)
  • White Shouldered House Moth (Endrosis sarcitrella)
  • Brown House Moth (Hofmannophila pseudospretella)

The MothPrevention® Clothes Moths Traps and Carpet Moths Traps work through being impregnated with a blend of different natural female moth pheromone attractants impregnated into the sticky moth trap surface. Adult Male Moths are attracted to the glue strip and become stuck to it. This does two things:

  1. It removes the male moth from the breeding cycle, reducing the females ability to lay eggs
  2. It enables you to monitor the severity of the moth problem around your home as you can count the number of adult male moths that are caught over a period of time.

This moth trap is specific to Clothes Moths and Carpet Moths. It will not attract other species

  • 3 Moth Traps in this pack
  • Catches a broad range of Clothes Moths & Carpet Moths
  • Natural, non toxic and safe to use in the home
  • Pheromone attractant covers entire glue strip
  • 3x the surface area of the Demi Diamond Moth Trap
  • 3 Month life span of closet moth traps
  • Will not attract other species
  • 1 Sticky Pheromone Strip included with Moth Trap

Clothes Moth Traps and Carpet Moth Traps for use in closets, bedrooms and living rooms around the home. We recommend using the closet moth traps continuously in order to monitor any new infestation

Replacement sticky strips are available for this product.

If you find you are catching moths in this pheromone moth trap, further control methods may be required to eliminate your moth problem

Useful to know:

  • Refrigerate your glue strips to make them easier to peel.
  • Glue on your hands? Rub in a little cooking oil and then wash with soap and warm water

Product Code: AMOTH00103

More Information

  • Clothes Moth Traps help monitor for activity and reduce the moth population
  • The quality of the pheromones is critical to success
  • German clothes moth trap pheromones work exceptionally well
  • MothPrevention moth traps are engineered in Germany and do work
  • Design of clothes moth traps is an important part of their effectiveness
  • Positioning of your clothes moth traps is critical to success
  • Moth Traps are only part of the solution - clothing damage means you have larvae

The best way to find out for sure if you have a clothes moth problem and the severity of it is to use Clothes Moth Traps.

Below we have details about our Clothes Moth Traps and answered the most frequently asked questions from our customers - we’ve successfully helped over 100,000 customers so far!

What are Clothes Moth Traps?

Clothes moth traps are pest control devices to monitor for clothes moth activity and to reduce the spread of clothes moths.

There are two main species of common clothes moths - the webbing clothes moth (Tineola bisselliella) and the case-making clothes moth (Tinea pellionella). See our Identification Guides to see which species you may have.

In less common cases you may have the White Shouldered House Moth (Endrosis sarcitrella) or the Brown House Moth (Hofmannophila pseudospretella).

If you have Carpet Moths, please note that it will be the same species of moth attacking your carpets rather than the clothes in your closet. The term ‘Carpet Moths’ is the commonly used expression to describe the same moths but in a different setting.

Clothes Moth Pheromone Traps work by attracting the male moths to the sticky moth traps through the use of a female moth pheromone (see below) - the mature male clothes moths get trapped on the sticky glue within the moth catcher trap.

Whether it's a Webbing Clothes Moth Trap (Common household Moth Trap), a Case-Making Clothes Moth Trap, a White Shouldered House Moth Trap, or a Brown House Moth Trap - the Moth Prevention Clothes Moth Traps will be an essential part of taking care of your moth problem - and preventing a moth problem.

Quality of Moth Pheromones In Moth Traps

Probably the most important aspect of how effective your moth traps for clothes will be is the quality of the pheromones - that’s the female clothes moth pheromone that attracts the male moths. The MothPrevention® Moth Trap works through being impregnated with a blend of different natural female moth pheromone attractants impregnated into the sticky surface.

This does two things:

  1. It removes the male moths from the breeding cycle, reducing the females ability to lay eggs
  2. It enables you to monitor the severity of the moth problem around your home as you can count the number of adult male moths that are caught over a period of time

This moth catcher trap is specific to Clothes Moths and Carpet Moths. It will not attract other species.

The MothPrevention® Clothes Moth Trap pheromones are engineered in Germany and not available in any other clothes moth trap in the UK, We have had them tested against the leading US clothes moth trap brands and they significant outperform them - this is confirmed by customer review data.

We are fully confident that you will not find a comparable-performing clothes moth trap on the market to our German-engineered ones.

Lastly, our pheromones cover the full glue surface to the edge of the sticky boards and are fully impregnated in the glue to make moth sticky traps that work.

Design of the Moth Trap

Our unique Clothes Moth Pheromone Traps are designed to be used either hung in closets or placed on shelves - the integral hanger gives you this versatility.

The reverse of the sticky moth traps trap box is designed in a subtle light wood-effect for discretion.

There are access holes for clothes moths on 4 sides of the outer box. The replaceable strip slides into the box and attaches to one side using a ‘low-tack’ thin sticky strip.

Useful Life Of Moth Traps

MothPrevention® Clothes Moth Traps last 12 weeks effective life, more than most on the market which usually last 8 weeks.

Make a note of the opening date on your calendar and replace the pheromone glue boards after 12 weeks.

Positioning Your Clothes Moth Traps

We recommend that you place your clothes moth traps 3 to 6 feet above floor level either hanging in closets or on shelves. Look for where you see adult moths and that will give you an idea of where to target your placement of the moths pheromone traps.

Note that, unlike many species of moths, clothes and carpet moths are nocturnal and avoid bright light - they are more likely to be active at night time and when you are sleeping.

While we do not recommend ‘moth-repellent’ scents such as lavender and cedar sachets (which are not that effective and quickly lose their scent), if you have recently placed these in your closets or drawers, we suggest you avoid placing the clothes moth traps close by.

If you find you are not catching any or many moths, after a week, try re-positioning the wool moth traps - this often then gives results for many of our customers, and remember that the placement needs to be near likely food sources for clothes moth larvae (keratin in natural animal fibres, most commonly wool-based).

Also note that only fully mature adult males will be caught by clothes moth pheromone traps - juvenile males and all females are still potentially flying and it takes time for the breeding cycle to be broken. Clothes moths will only typically live for a month so you may see some activity for 4-5 weeks after putting the moths pheromone traps in place.

Damage to Clothing - Moth Traps only part of the solution

If you have moth damage to clothing in your closets and / or drawers, it is highly likely that clothes moths have laid eggs and reached the larval stage where the larvae eat the keratin in the natural fibres of woollens, cashmere, silk etc.

In this case, use of a clothes moth killer kit combined with thorough cleaning and treatment of your clothing and the closet itself / surrounding areas will be necessary - closet moth traps however remain part of the solution, to both deal with any residual adult clothes moths, and avoiding a repeat infestation, as well as for ongoing monitoring.

Ongoing Monitoring of Moths

We strongly recommend that after you have dealt with the worst of a clothes moth infestation, you leave clothes moth traps in place for 8-12 weeks afterwards - this will both enable you to check regularly if there is any risk of repeat infestation and, importantly, provide the first line of defence in a new infestation spiralling out of control.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve answered the most common questions we’ve received from real customers and stated these below in their own words - hopefully this will be helpful in you troubleshooting the most common concerns about clothes moth pheromone traps.

Do moths eat clothes?

It is not the moths themselves that cause textile damage; it is their larvae (like small white caterpillars) that eat the keratin in natural animal-based fibres (think wool, cashmere, silk, mohair, soft leather, feathers etc.). The keratin is a protein which gives them nourishment and enables them to grow to the point of pupation where they turn into clothes moths. The larvae will hatch from the many eggs (up to 200) that the female clothes moth will lay on suitable food source (ideally an expensive cashmere sweater!).

Dust is largely made up of shed human skin cells and hair - and another source of keratin. Cleanliness in your closets is critical.

If you already have damage to clothes or carpets from clothes moths then clothes moth traps are likely only part of the solution - you may need a killer kit for moths and need to do some work to completely get rid of clothes moths in your closet or carpets.

Lastly, make sure that you do not have pantry moths flying around your home rather than clothes moths - we provide separate moth traps for pantry moths, the most common species in the US being the Indian Meal Moth (again, see our moth identification guides).

When do Clothes Moths Get Active?

The trigger for clothes moths to pupate, turn into adults and fly to new locations in search of new food sources to lay their eggs is warmer weather, and ideally a degree of humidity.

So weather patterns are key here - warmer States across the south of the US (think Florida across to Texas and then across to California) will be likely to see clothes moth activity all year round. In the northern states (Washington State across to New York), the cold winter temperatures delay pupation until the weather warms up in the spring - larvae will still be causing damage to clothing, particularly in centrally heated homes, but flying moths will only emerge with warmer temperatures.

So clothes moth traps are best used in warmer weather (normally 65 degrees or more) but there may still be the need to use treatments where larvae are still causing damage outside warmer times.

Where do Clothes Moths Come From?

Clothes moths may arrive in your home from adjacent properties or gardens. We have also seen instances of bird nests under roof eaves and in chimneys being sources of infestation for our customers - think bird feathers as being a keratin-rich food source for clothes moth larvae.

Apartment blocks and other densely populated inner city areas (terraced housing) provide close adjacency for transfer of clothes moths form one home to another - we see significant infestations constantly in central San Francisco and Manhattan.

However, given ideal rural food sources in nature, clothes moths are not solely an urban phenomenon. Clothes moth traps provide a first line of defence in avoiding a clothes moth infestation.

Do Clothes Moth Traps Work?

Clothes Moth Traps only catch active male moths, not females or juveniles, so some customers wonder why they still see some moths flying / not trapped - this takes time for the breeding cycle to stop (4-6 weeks).

Customers also wonder why they have damage to clothes and / or carpets when they have been actively trapping clothes moths - this is usually explained by larvae that have hatched and not yet pupated eating the natural animal fibres. In time they will turn into adult moths as part of their natural lifecycle.

It takes time to deal with a moth infestation - sadly there is no immediate quick fix without some work.

I’ve put out clothes moth traps but have only caught 1 or 2 moths. But I’m still seeing lots of flying moths?

The ‘flying moths’ may be juvenile males or female clothes moths - they will not be attracted to the female clothes moth pheromone - only adult males will.

The moths may not be clothes moths, or any of the 4 targeted species - common clothes moths (‘webbing clothes moths’), case making clothes moths, brown house moths, white-shouldered moths. You may have pantry moths - Indian Meal Moths or Mediterranean Flour Moths, or another species.

Won’t Clothes Moth Traps Encourage Clothes Moths into the House?

This is unlikely - only mature males are likely to find any attraction in the female clothes moth pheromones and the effective range is not likely to bring them into the home form an adjacent property or the garden.

If only males did come into the home, they cannot breed alone; female clothes moths coming in to the home are likely looking for a suitable food source (natural animal-fibre based textiles) to lay their eggs.

My moth traps aren’t catching anything. Is this old stock?

The effective life of MothPrevention® Clothes Moth Pheromone Traps (12 weeks) only starts after the sticky glue board outer packaging of the moth sticky traps is opened.

The outer packaging is also date-stamped with an expiry date - usually 18 to 24 months after you will have received it.

It's challenging to get the backing off of the sticky paper moth trap without getting your hands sticky?

We recommend that you put the sticky glue boards in their outer packaging for a couple of hours - this will make it far easier to peel the protective cover off the pheromone glue board after opening the outer packaging.

How do I get the sticky glue off my hands?

I’ve seen moths in my home, when is the best time to do a treatment?

Assuming you have identified the moths as clothes moths (one of the species referred to above and shown in our identification guides) then start straight away by placing clothes moth pheromone traps. Follow this up with a detailed look into your clothes stored in your closets and drawers. Take out clothing and check for damage in the form of holes in woollens, cashmere, merino, silk etc - natural animal based fibres. Look closely for the larvae. If you’ve reached the stage of clothes moth damage then you’ll need additional action and likely a moth killer kit to deal with the infestation - to save the considerable investment in your clothing will take work, but will be worth it. If there’s no damage, but you find that the flying moths are clothes moths, start with clothes moth traps to reduce and then break the breeding cycle as soon as you can, and then use ongoing for monitoring purposes.

I’ve seen moths flying around, what do I do?

Start with identification - are they clothes moths? The most common clothes is the webbing clothes moth which will be about a quarter inch long and golden in colour. If you have clothes moths, set up clothes moth traps - locate them 3 to 6 feet high and near to the activity you’ve seen, which will typically be close to your valuable knitwear and other natural fibre textiles, although not cotton, which is a plant based fabric. Over time, keep checking the clothes moth traps - are they filling up as rapidly as when you first set them up? Or are the number of moths caught declining over time? If they are reducing then you are probably getting on top of the increase in the population and reducing the likelihood of a full-blown infestation. If they are not declining, it is probable that you have a deeper problem that requires more investigation of your clothing to see if they have been laying eggs there (that then hatch into larvae before pupating into adult clothes moths). See the advice above about next steps. Or there maybe an alternative source of the clothes moths coming into your home from outside - you’ll need to investigate if this is form an immediately adjacent property or on your property (natural sources such as bird nests), and take appropriate action.

I have seen a couple of moths flying around, does this mean I have a moth infestation?

Not necessarily - it may be the start of clothes moths coming into the home in search of suitable sites in which to breed and lay their eggs, and in which case setting up clothes moth pheromone traps close to where you have seen them may be all you need to do. Constant vigilance is important once you are aware of the potential for a future infestation - clothes moths will breed prolifically if left undisturbed, particularly at times of warmer weather and / or higher humidity.

What are clothes moths attracted to?

Male Clothes moths will be attracted to the female clothes moth pheromone (like that contained in our clothes moth traps) - they will be looking to breed (which is their sole activity / purpose after the larval stage. Female clothes moths will be looking for natural animal-based fibres in which to lay their eggs. Both males and females are attracted to dark, undisturbed places where they can breed and with close proximity to the likely food source for the larvae when the eggs hatch - think little-used closets, under furniture, dusty attics etc.

Can I ever get rid of moths? My friend says that once you’ve got them you’ll have them forever.

At MothPrevention® we would say that it depends on how much work you are prepared to do if you have had a full blown infestation - if you are prepared to isolate the locations of the infestation and thoroughly treat any infested textiles / clothes / carpets, and the actual closets, drawers etc where the infestation is located, then it is perfectly possible to get rid of even a severe clothes moth infestation. Then the trick will be to prevent a recurrence - and that will only be possible through the following three-pronged approach: Be vigilant and regularly check the likely places that clothes moths will set up home in your house - under furniture, in closets, dark corners, attics etc. Regularly clean out, vacuum thoroughly and wash down these areas. Set up and maintain clothes moth traps for a period after the last infestation to monitor and reduce the likelihood of a repeat infestation. Note that clothes moths are active at night / in dark undisturbed places so you will be likely asleep when they are active!

What causes moths in the house?

Moths come into the house for various reasons. Harmless larger moths are attracted to light. Clothes and Pantry moths however are problematic - they come into the house to look for food sources for their larvae that hatch from the eggs laid on your animal-based fibre clothing and home textiles (clothes & carpet moths) or dried food (pantry moths). So the causes or moths in the house for the species that damage textiles or infest food are driven by the need for their larvae to eat.

What is the best clothes moth trap?

The best clothes moth trap is designed to allow easy access for adult male moths and yet provides a darker ‘safe’ place for clothes moths, which hate light and being disturbed. Design is also important to customers - a discrete design with a flatter profile doesn’t advertise the presence of moths to guests and hangs more easily in the closet.The glue is important to ensure effective trapping. Lastly, and importantly, the best clothes moth trap has the most effective pheromone to attract the male moths - the cheap Chinese imitations absolutely fail on this critical aspect and that is why we have our pheromones specially engineered in Germany by scientists who really understand this deeply technical area (exclusive to MothPrevention). It's also why our moth traps are not cheap! But they work. Period.

How long do clothes moths live?

Clothes moths only live for about a month - many customers do not realize that it's the moth larvae that hatch from their eggs that do the damage to precious home textiles and investment pieces. The adult flying moths do not even have mouths to feed - their sole purpose in their short life is to reproduce and lay eggs to carry on the life cycle. So, to answer the question ‘how long do clothes moths live?’, only a few weeks in adult form.

What do moths hate?

Clothes moths hate light and being disturbed - their ideal location is with a plentiful food source for their larvae to eat (keratin, being the protein in animal based fibres), darker locations like closets, drawers and under furniture, which are also good locations for them to remain free to go through their lifecycle stages. Other likely locations that avoid what clothes moths hate are attics and spare bedrooms that are rarely used.

What is the best moth repellent?

The best repellent is usually strong lavender or lemongrass. Cedar has traditionally been used as a moth repellent but it has a less pronounced scent and that scent fades over time, quite quickly. This can be artificially boosted by use of cedar essential oil, but is a laborious process for cedar furniture. So, we would recommend the best moth repellent being lavender or lemongrass, but we would also advise pairing this with moth traps outside the closets to monitor for moth activity.

What do clothes moths look like?

Clothes moths look like small gold coloured moths mainly - the most common species being the webbing clothes moth. Despite the name though their larvae will attack any animal based fibres including carpets and curtains, soft furnishings as well as clothes. The case-bearing moth also comes under the common term ‘clothes moths’ and behaves in a similar way in terms of what their larvae eat. To see what clothes moths look like we would suggest taking a look at our Clothes Moth Identification Guide.

What kills moths?

To answer the question “What kills moths” it is important to distinguish between the adult flying moths and their larvae that hatch from the eggs laid on clothes, carpets and home textiles. For adult moths we recommend pantry or clothes moth traps (it is critical to identify the species you are dealing with before buying moth traps because the pheromones differ for each type). IN addition, a ‘knock-down’ spray or fogger will also have an instant impact. However, our clothes moth traps will last 3 months before they need to be replenished with refill strips and offer continuous monitoring. For clothes moth larvae that have actually caused you damage, we would recommend reading our 10 Steps to Clothes Moth Control or 10 steps to Pantry Moth Control resources to understand what is required - moth traps are part of the solution, but a much more intensive cleaning regime and treatments are required to ensure you kill moths completely and be sure you have dealt with the moth infestation.

How do i get rid of moths in my wardrobe?

For you to get rid of moths in your closet will initially require you to assess whether they have laid eggs and there is a presence of clothes moth larvae. If there is no damage, you may be able to reduce the incidence of clothes moths over time by trapping the adult males and taking them out of the breeding cycle - this reduces the population of clothes moths and allows you to monitor the catch rate which should also be progressively reducing. If you have damage to clothing then you will likely have an infestation where the clothes moths have laid their eggs, the eggs have hatched and the emerging larvae are feasting on your investment pieces and / or precious home textiles. In this case, to get rid of clothes moths in your closet you will need to perform a much more intensive clear out, cleaning process and clothes moth treatment. In this case please read our article 10 Steps to Clothes Moth Control.

Why do moths eat clothes?

Clothes moths themselves do not eat; it is their larvae that have emerged from the eggs laid by adult, mated, female clothes moths that eat the protein (keratin) in animal based fibres - they will generally not be attracted to cotton or synthetic fibres. The clothes moth larvae eat clothes that are made from animal based fibres - think cashmere, wool, silk, feathers, fur and soft leather.

How to get rid of moths naturally?

It is important to understand that to get rid of moths naturally will take longer than using pesticide treatments but can be done with patience. If there are only adult clothes or pantry moths flying in your home, then moth traps will likely achieve this over time as they take the male moths out of the breeding cycle and reduce the population progressively. However, if you have damage to clothing or home textiles, or an infestation in your pantry, you will need to take fast action on clearing out and treating infested clothing or foods, and then thoroughly cleaning the location of the infestation to eliminate any remaining eggs or larvae. Continue to defend through the use of moth traps and natural repellents. If you need to get rid of moths naturally when your carpets that have been infested, consider use of our natural carpet moth killer kits.

What temperature kills clothes moths?

Extremely high or freezing conditions are temperatures that kill clothes moths. We always recommend that either dry cleaning or deep freezing infested clothes and / or home textiles for 72 hours should kill any eggs and larvae present. While extremely high temperatures can kill clothes moths and it may be a process that can be conducted through heat treatments by a professional pest controller, it is not something that you can achieve at home on your own.

Clothes in the freezer to kill moths - how long?

We often get asked ‘how long do you freeze clothes infested by clothes moths?’. Firstly, we make it clear that the target is to kill eggs and larvae of clothes moths as rarely will you find the adult moths on your clothes. Secondly, we strongly recommend that you wrap your clothes and seal them in plastic bags before placing them in your freezer. In terms of how long they should be in your freezer, we would say at least 72 hours to ensure the eggs and larvae are killed.

Do moth balls kill moths?

Moth balls do kill moths in an enclosed environment such as closets and drawers but are meant to target the eggs and larvae of clothes moths. They will not work in the same way in an open space and will not affect adult flying moths unless they end up in the enclosed space with moth balls. To be clear, we do NOT recommend the use of naphthalene moth balls - they are highly toxic, carcinogenic and highly flammable.
