Includes: 2 complete traps with pheromone lure
Non-toxic and odorless trap to attract and capture clothing moths naturally. It is environmentally safe, non-toxic and uses no pesticides. The Cloths Moth Trap catches clothes moths during their mating season by using a natural pheromone lure that draws male moths into the sticky inner trapping surface of each trap. With mating thus disrupted, no further eggs are laid. The trap will therefore reduce the risk of damage from clothes moth on clothing, carpets, materials, soft furnishings and upholstery.
Clothes moths occasionally occur in homes where the larvae damage clothing and personal objects made of wool, hair, fur or feathers. Female moths are especially attracted to oily or soiled fabrics, where they lay their eggs. The moths avoid light and are therefore difficult to find and identify. If moths are found in the trap, take immediate measures to control the larvae. Search out damaged fabrics and destory, dry clean, or freeze them (in a deep freeze for at least 14 days).
THIS PRODUCT SIGNALS WHEN A DAMAGING INFESTATION IS PRESENT; IT DOES NOT CONTROL LARVAE WHICH FEED ON CLOTHING.
Remove the white silicon cover paper from the inside of the trap. Open the foil packet and place the attractant in the center of the trap, then fold/assemble the trap.
The sticky inner surface catches moths, which are drawn to the trap by the pheromone attractant. This pheromone mimics the scent released by the female moth to attract the male. It is very specific to the clothes moth and will not attract other species. Trapping the male moths means that the females will not be fertilized and egg-laying will be reduced.
Replace the trap after two months or sooner if the trap is covered with moths. If more than a few male moths are caught, additional control measure may be required.
