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.

Clothes Moth Traps - Pheromone Traps For Moths

The Moth Prevention 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 sticky glue moth trap with advanced pheromones to monitor and control infestations of Clothes Moths and Carpet Moths.

Unlike many other brands of Clothes Moths Trap that have a simple 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 strip to catch moths. This makes the catch rate for these sticky moth traps impressive.

Type of Moths attracted to this 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)

MothPrevention® Clothes Moths Trap work through being impregnated with a blend of different natural female moth pheromone attractants impregnated into the sticky 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.

Our clothes moths traps are specific to Clothes Moths and Moths attracted to textiles such as carpets. These closet moth traps will not attract other species

  • 3 Clothes Moth Pheromone Traps in the Pack
  • Catches a broad range of Clothes Moths

    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 casemaking 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.

    These pheromone traps for moths work by attracting the male moths to the trap through the use of a female moth pheromone (see below) - the mature male clothes moths get trapped on the sticky glue within the 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 Closet 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 trap is specific to Clothes Moths - moths who are attracted to textiles. This pheromone trap for clothes moths will not attract other species.

    The MothPrevention® Clothes Moth Trap pheromones are engineered in Germany and not available in any other clothes moths traps in the USA, 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.

    There are a large number of Chinese traps available online - these DO NOT WORK - they do not have an effective clothes moth pheromone. Also beware the huge number of fake customer reviews on these traps that you will find on Amazon.

    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 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 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 fibers, most commonly wool-based).

    Also note that only fully mature adult males will be caught by clothes moth pheromone traps - juvenile makes 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 fibers of woolens, 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 defense in a new infestation spiraling out of control. Be on clothes moth alert!

     

    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's not the moths themselves that cause textile damage; it is their larvae (like small white caterpillars) that eat the keratin in natural animal-based fibers (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!).

    Still wondering why do moths eat clothes such as wool, but not cotton? Read our article 'Why do moths eat clothes?'

    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, textiles 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 home.

    Lastly, make sure that you do not have pantry moths flying around your home rather than clothes moths - we provide separate 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 - moth 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 defense in avoiding a clothes moth infestation.

    If you're interested in preventing clothes moths from eating your clothes, you should read our article 'How to stop moths eating my clothes - 10 steps to clothes moth prevention'

     

    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 textiles in the home 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 fibers. 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 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-fiber 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 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.

    Our Clothes Moth Traps are engineered in Germany - after sourcing the most effective moth pheromones in the US market that you will not find elsewhere, we have several other costs;

    We have to pay the manufacturer of the traps and the packaging, ship them to the USA, pay Customs duty, ship them to our fulfillment centers, pay warehousing storage and labor charges, and finally pay for shipping to your home.

    Obviously we need to make a margin too - this keeps our business viable!

    Compared to significant economic loss to you with your most expensive clothing items and home textiles 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 woolens, cashmere, merino, silk etc - natural animal based fibers.

    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 color.

    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 fiber 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're 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.

    However, there maybe an alternative source of the clothes moths coming into your home from outside - you’ll need to investigate if this is from 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 fibers 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 and clothes, 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!

    If you're trying to get rid of clothes moths for good, you should read our detailed guide on 'how to get rid of clothes moths'

     

    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 fiber clothing and home textiles (clothes 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 moth 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.

    The clothes moth life cycle is fairly fascinating, and knowing a bit more about the stages of a moth's life might help you understand how to solve your problem. Luckily we put together a handy article on 'the clothes moth life cycle' which you can read here.

     

    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 (keratiin, being the protein in animal based fibers), darker locations like closets, drawers and under furniture, which are also good locations for them to remain free to go through their clothes moth 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 colored moths mainly - the most common species being the webbing clothes moth. Despite the name though their larvae will attack any animal based fibers 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 moth pheromones differ for each type).

    IN addition, a ‘knock-down’ moth 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 closet?

    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 moth 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 fibers - they will generally not be attracted to cotton or synthetic fibers.

    The clothes moth larvae eat clothes that are made from animal based fibers - think cashmere, wool, silk, feathers, fur and soft leather.

    Still wondering why do moths eat clothes such as wool, but not cotton? Read our article 'Why do moths eat clothes?'

     

    How to get rid of clothes 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.

    For more detailed guidance on how to get rid of clothes moths naturally, read our guide on 'how to get rid of clothes moths and their larvae for good'

     

    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.

    For more detailed guidance on how to get rid of clothes moths and their larvae, read our guide on 'how to get rid of clothes moths and their larvae for good'

     

    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

    ★★★★★
    : Catch the moths will little effort..
    ★☆☆☆☆
    : I set two traps in a small basement one month ago and have caught a total of 2 moths. I've seen and swatted many more than that.
    ★★★★★
    : Once the traps arrived, I saw the results. In one instance, I saw a moth in the kitchen and was temped to swat it down, but I waited. It flew left and right of the trap, then landed on it and crawled inside. Magic. Very efficient.
    ★★★★★
    : The traps are good-sized and their powerful attractant pulls in moths from who knows where, in closets and also whole rooms with wool persian carpets.

    ★★★☆☆
    : Did not solve my problem....
    ★★☆☆☆
    : Pheromone traps appear to be working on the moths that escaped the poor performance of the bombs.
    ★★★★★
    : So far the product looks promising--it has caught a number of moths. It's too soon to determine how effective it will be in eliminating my moth problem.
    ★★★★★
    : large traps with wide area of pheromone

    ★★★★★
    : The Moth-Prevention closet moth traps lived up to their promise. From the moment we began using them, we found moths in the traps. I've already ordered a second batch now that I know that they work.
    ★★★★★
    : They work and I decided I needed more.
    ★★★★★
    : The traps work and easy to use.
    ★☆☆☆☆
    : I just did this. Ur product is not catching the moths, save 1. Yet I kill them flying around. Not happy with performance
    ★★☆☆☆
    : Not attracting moths even after a week.
    ★★★☆☆
    : Although I received my traps in record time and my follow- up email was answered in a timely manner, the moths I have in my house are not, as I have found out, the type of moths that could be trapped by this product. I didn’t realize that there was this distinction. I wish the information I read on-line would have prepared me for the fact that these traps are not universal traps.
    ★★★★★
    : Superior quality of the product when compared to others.
    ★★★★★
    : They work .... but there is not one solution to clothes moths. It is a constant battle like gardening and constantly weeding. Moth Prevention is a professional company, fast shipping, great customer service. I will be buying more of the Moth Traps in the future.
    ★★★★★
    : Going by last year, they worked great. HOpefully, will be a repeat. Have not got any as yet. When will breeding begin?
    ★★☆☆☆
    : Nothing has happened so far. I do not have a single moth in any of the 6 traps. All are 5-6 ft. high. Have seen only one flying moth. Still hoping to catch moths.
    ★★★★☆
    : So far so good w/regard to how it is working.
    ★★★★★
    : They started catching moths on the first day. This is the first infestation I have seen here in several years and I am very relieved to see that these traps started to work immediately.
    ★★★★★
    : WILL KNOW MORE WHEN SPRING COMES BUT SO FAR IT HAS TRAPPED SEVERAL MOTHS.
    ★★★★★
    : Can't blame the trap but not one moth yet! What I did have were moth holes in my cashmere sweaters! aagh! I am not without hope.
    ★★★★★
    : Exactly one year later, the moths came back. Last year the traps worked well and many were caught. This year there are far fewer but traps are working.
    ★★★★★
    : Broke the cycle. Haven ‘t seen any juveniles.
    ★★★★★
    : Great product works no smell Bought several times
    ★★★★☆
    : Our daughter came to visit and apparently brought a couple of clothes moths with her. I ordered traps as a precaution after seeing one moth. Since have seen a second moth but none in the trap. It's too early to know the effectiveness of the traps.
    ★★★★★
    : Caught one moth in the trap located in a closet. Yeah, it's working. Sure, I'll keep you posted as we catch more.😁
    ★★★★★
    : Great service. Valuable information. Will invest in more of their products
    ★★★★★
    : Great customer service, and the website tips helped me wipe out my moth infestation even before using the traps to make sure they aren't back.
    ★★★★★
    : It’s working right away! Really appreciate the quick fulfillment,
    ★★★★★
    : Still wish it was easier to count moths
    ★★★★★
    : Super fast delivery and they are catching tons of moths
    ★★★★★
    : I'm not sure what to do with the trap. It does catch moths, but apparently only male moths. I was thinking it would catch the female, egg-laying moths. This was my mistake; not the company's. They explained it on their website. The company delivered their product quickly. But I would like to find something that catches the egg layers so that I can prevent garment destruction.
    ★★★★★
    : I have to admit, I’ve never bought moth traps but after my neighbor had an infestation; I decided it was better to be safe than sorry. They were easy to setup and are strangely aesthetically appealing 😹. And the directions/occasional emails they sent left me with no doubt I’d set them up right. A+ for this company that clearly cares.
    ★★★★★
    : Fantastic product! Attracted and trapped moths within 30 min of hanging. Will definitely buy this product again!
    ★★★★★
    : Your traps work - from the get go. We had tried other traps that were not as effective. The reviews on your product were encouraging and we took a chance. Over night, the traps had attracted moths- when another product had been out for a week without attracting any moths.
    ★★★★★
    : attracts moths while still in unopened packages. i had these traps put away and my wife saw the moths fluttering about a closed drawer, and discovered the traps. after opening them up for use we caught dozens of moths every day. very effective.
    ★★☆☆☆
    : The traps are not attracting any of the clothes moths or anything else for that matter
    ★★★★★
    : The traps really worked. and so easy to use
    ★★★★★
    : So far, after 2 weeks, the moth traps are catching many male moths.
    ★★★★★
    : THE TRAPS ARE FULL. WILL PUT UP CLEAN ONES. SOME MOTHS STILLFLYING AROUND.
    ★★★★★
    : Excellent product and response from company
    ★★★★★
    : Caught many moths in a few days.
    ★★★★★
    : Attract more moths than any other lure. Wish they would leave more open space on packaging for talking notes and made the openings square vs round making it easier to keep track of moth counts.
    ★★★★★
    : It did what i though it would, killed most of the moths
    ★★★★★
    : Two years ago we discarded a rolled up oriental wool rug that was infested with moths. Moths were still present in the house. Last year we disposed of the wall to wall rug in that room, and still, moths were present. We cleaned and scrubbed & were dismayed when an occasional moth flew by this year. I ordered from your website & recieved the traps promptly. No kidding, I hadn't fully opened a package and a moth came at me! I don't know where they're hiding, but the traps continue to regularly attract them. Thank you for providing such a great odorless product!
    ★☆☆☆☆
    : I have yet to catch a moth with it. It’s been almost two weeks now. I had high hopes but this is disappointing.
    ★★★★★
    : Please don’t wáste my time!
    ★★★★★
    : These work consistently the best for me for clothes moths in my old Colorado house (though I doubt they vary by state!). I like that I can get refills. I had trouble pulling off the paper until I remembered to put it in the freezer for a few seconds to chill. These things are worth it!
    ★★★★★
    : This product really works! I had major trouble with moths eating my cloths and decided to give this a try. So happy I did!!
    ★★★★★
    : These traps are like magic! I had about 8 moths in each trap in 7 days! Other traps didn’t do so well.
    ★★★★★
    : Works but too expensive- good product
    ★☆☆☆☆
    : Very expensive cardboard. Have clothes moths flying in room with zero interest in moth trap. Have caught nothing in weeks.
    ★★★★★
    : Easy to use, SUPER effective, unobtrusive carpet moth traps-sooooo cost effective.
    ★★★☆☆
    : some where not sticky for what they cost
    ★★★★★
    : helpful product no smell can be moved as needed
    ★★★★★
    : It has caught many moths - but there are still more to catch
    ★☆☆☆☆
    : Product didn't work at all. Of the about 10 traps, we caught a total of about 10 moths in 2 weeks. They fly all around the traps, but continue to eat our clothes.
    ★★★★★

    ★★★★★
    : See above. I have nothing more to say
