How do moth traps work?
These moth traps use pheromones (chemical signals released by female moths) to attract male moths to the trap. Moths lured in are caught on the sticky inside of the trap and die. Killing the males interrupts the breeding cycle.
What sort of moths do your traps catch?
EnviroSafe clothes moth traps catch webbing clothes moths (Tineola bisselliella), the case-making clothes moth (Tinea pellionella), as well two other species of clothing moths (Niditinea fuscella, and Monopis icterogastra).
How long do EnviroSafe Clothes Moth traps last?
Although the sticky part works for a long time, the pheromone will attract clothes moths for three months once the foil packet is open. You can record when you set the trap on the outside. I like to put a reminder on my phone so I don’t forget. It’s also an excellent frequency to check your storage and traps for signs of infestation.
Where should I place the trap?
Place your traps in your wardrobe, cupboard, storage area, or floor behind furniture if you are checking for moths in your furniture or carpet. Clothes moths prefer dark or dim spaces and are not attracted to light like other moths. In addition, some clothes moth species are not particularly good fliers and tend to crawl or hop around. Placing the trap lower in a cupboard or on the floor may trap more moths.
