Your Path to a Moth-Free Life

We know that it can be frustrating and stressful when your precious investment pieces and home textiles are being destroyed by clothes moths. We’ve walked in your shoes and feel your pain. The good news is that we are here to guide you through the process of getting rid of clothes moths.

PLUS we’ll ship your order by Fast Tracked Shipping

As a small family-company we’ve successfully served over 125,000 customers throughout the country just like you.

What to expect of Moth Prevention Pheromone Moth Traps

Your clothes moth traps should start catching the male moths within a day or two, but it will take time to reduce the population if there are moth larvae present that pupate into a new cycle of adult moths. This can be a process that extends over several months.

Clothes Moth Traps are the ideal starting point, especially as they give you a clear idea of how bad the infestation is and whether you are seeing success (a reduced daily catch rate over time is good news!).

If you have seen damage to clothing and / or carpets, rugs and other home textiles, you may want to consider one of our Clothes Moth Killer or Carpet Moth Killer Kits to deal with the larval stage at the same time (our kits include moth traps).

With our guidance, you will deal with your moth infestation, protect your valuable clothing and home textiles, and take away the stress of dealing with these pests.

About 5 days after placing two of the three traps, there were two moths caught in each trap. Two weeks later there was one additional moth caught in each trap and a few days ago another single moth was in each trap. Meanwhile in the same time period I smashed from two to seven moths each day on the walls near where the traps were placed. It seemed odd that so few were trapped and so many landed on the walls, which makes me wonder if the ratio of males to females is really that low. Meanwhile, I'm laundering, cleaning, and living out of storage and plastic bags, and using essential oils in the hope of one day eradicating the problem.

Dear Customer Thank you for your feedback on our Clothes and Carpet Moth Traps. If you are not seeing many moths on the Traps it could be for the following reasons: 1) The moth you are targeting is not one of the Moths mentioned above. You may like to view our guide on Identifying Clothes and Carpet Moths. Our Traps catch the following types of Moth: •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) 2) As you have mentioned, it might be due to the stage in the moth life cycle which means that you are seeing more females and juveniles, but when the males mature and are sexually active they will be attracted to the powerful female pheromones on the sticky strips. The Traps can be kept in place for 12 weeks after opening. 3) Positioning of the Traps is important. They need to be 3-6 feet above carpet level. If you have any other moth deterrents placed nearby they can distract from the Traps.

Thank you for your feedback on our Clothes and Carpet Moth Traps. The Traps will catch the adult male moths once they are active. As the moth season gets underway there will be more larvae pupating so as the weather gets warmer you will expect to see an increasing catch rate. The Traps are active for 12 weeks after opening and can be moved around areas where you suspect moths are present so long as they are at least 3 feet above floor level. Thank you for your custom.

Thank you for your continued custom and we are sorry to see that you have given us a 1 star for service. We see that your package was delivered on time so we hope that everything went smoothly. As you have been using our Moth Traps for some time now, we would expect that the moths you are seeing are not adult male moths, which is a good thing! It is the moth larvae that do the damage to your clothing and textiles. They will eat animal based fibers such as your woolen sweaters causing the holes that you are seeing. If there are still moth eggs in your home, they will hatch into larvae and then become adult moths, and the moth life cycle will start over. You may like to consider one of our Clothes Moth Killer Kits which eliminates Moths, Eggs and Larvae. If you need any further help or guidance please get in touch with us at help@moth-prevention.com We value your custom and are here to help. Best wishes Amanda

{{ settings.sitename }}'s Reply:
We appreciate that discovering moths in your home can be very distressing. There could be several reasons why you are not seeing many moths on your Moth Traps at this time: 1. It is still early on in the Moth Season. If you are seeing any evidence of holes in your clothing then it will be the Moth Larvae that are currently most active rather than the adult moths. In this case a Moth Killer Kit would be worth considering. 2. You may find many more moths are present in the coming weeks if the weather gets warmer. It is worth keeping the Traps in place as they will be active for 12 weeks after opening. 3. Our Traps catch the adult male moths that are sexually active and are the following types of moth: •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) If you need any assistance with identifying the moths in your home, our article on Identifying Clothes and Carpet Moths is full of information. 4.

Caught only one moth in two traps
{{ settings.sitename }}'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

Clothes Moth Traps - Pheromone Traps For Moths

The MothPrevention® Clothes Moth Trap lures adult moths using powerful moth pheromones and then traps them. This powerful clothes moth trap provides an effective, economical and convenient natural moth control solution to prevent moths damaging your clothing, furniture and precious textiles.

The MothPrevention® Clothes 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

  • 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

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.

Wish it wasn't so expensive. Pretty pricey for the set of 3 clothes moth traps

Compared to significant economic loss to you with your most expensive clothing items and carpets at risk, we feel they are a relatively sensible choice for the peace of mind for what have been proven to be the absolute best clothes moth traps on the market.

Oh, and you get free shipping to your home when buying from MothPrevention!

How do I get the sticky glue off my hands?

If you accidentally get the sticky glue on your hands when assembling the clothes moth traps, simply rub a little olive oil into your hands and then wash thoroughly with soap and water.

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.

Is a Pheromone Moth Trap The Same as a Clothes Moth Trap?

A pheromone moth trap is a generic name for a moth trap which uses moth pheromones to attract and catch moths. Clothes moth traps are a specific type of pheromone trap for moths. For that reason they can also be referred to as clothes moth pheromone traps and various other names such as:

  • Wool Moth Trap
  • Casemaking Moth Trap
  • Webbing Clothes Moth Trap
  • Textile Moth Trap
  • Clothing Moth Trap
  • Closet Moth Trap
  • Bedroom Moth Trap
  • Phermone Moth Traps
  • Moth Traps
  • Cloth Moth Trap
  • Cloths Moth Traps
  • Indoor Moth Trap
  • Clothing Moth Box Traps
  • House moth trap
  • Moth Catcher Trap
  • And many more!

Recommended by Becky Fuller

Having moths in your home doesn't need to cost you a huge amount of money. I'm so glad I contacted Moth Prevention because it was a simple, effective, convenient and inexpensive way of dealing with what seemed like a massive problem for me and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.

Last year I noticed the moths around the house and I suddenly realized that they must have been in through the carpet. And then I looked through the clothes and there was moth damage everywhere. So we knew we had a really big problem. Initially, when I was looking for a solution to all of this, I looked online and I did speak to a couple of different companies and the advice that I was given was so ranging. But, generally people were saying that what I needed to do was so extreme that I had to get rid of all my carpets, that I needed to get rid of a lot of my clothing, you know, a lot of extreme measures. And it felt quite overwhelming, to be honest.

And I wasn't really sure what to do, which is why I reached out to Facebook and got the advice from Moth Prevention, which really helped me and made me feel far less overwhelmed by the whole process because actually, you know, I didn't need to do any of that. And I would have gone in there ready to get rid of all the carpets and all my clothes. And actually, you don't need to do all of that because the kit that you get from Moth Prevention is so effective. It's in the way that it works, that it saved all of my carpets and pretty much all of my clothes. And I haven't had a problem with moths since.

If you discover any moths in your house, don't wait to see if it's a problem or use fly spray. Just get in touch with Moth Prevention and buy one of their kits. Make sure that you use them because you can't always see where they are laying eggs or the damage that they're doing until it's sometimes too late. I still buy the moth traps just for reassurance that moths aren't coming back because they do return if you don't keep an eye on them. And it really does reassure me that we will never be in that situation again.
