What are Clothes Moths?

The most prevalent Clothes Moth in the U.K. are the Tineola Bisselliella. Female Clothes Moths will lay up to 200 eggs at a time, these eggs will develop into larvae that will damage many different types of garments, particularly those of natural origin; such as natural wool. Carpets are also subject to attack and infestation. Warm, contained settings such as; wardrobes, cupboards and airing cupboards also provide an ideal environment for the larvae to develop. The larvae often produce a silk web that is much larger than the larvae itself. Clothes Moth can be active all year round between the temperatures of 15℃ and 33℃.

How do our traps help?

The Clothes Moth larvae cause most damage, as adult male moths are concerned with locating females to mate with, and the female moths will then search for suitable egg laying sites. Our Clothes Moth Pheromone Trap offers a safe and natural way to trap and catch these male adult Clothes Moth, and so reduce the overall Clothes Moth population. A pheromone lure is placed on the sticky surface inside the trap. This gives off a sex pheromone that attracts the male clothes moth, which are then caught on the sticky surface inside the trap. The traps can catch high numbers of Clothes Moths. Less moth mating will then be achieved and less egg laying from female moths.

The pheromone lure that Dragonfli supplies will attract and catch the three main Clothes Moth species, which not all Clothes Moth lures do. The three species that the Dragonfli Clothes Moth lure will attract are:

  • Webbing Clothes Moth (Tineola bisselliella)
  • Case Making Clothes Moth (Tinea pellionella)
  • Pale Backed Clothes Moth (Monopis cracicopitella)

Our trap is highly effective, insecticide free and releases no odours.

How do I set up the traps?

    Our traps are very simple to assemble. First insert the lure by opening the foil sachet and remove the pheromone lure vial. Place this vial inside the trap and ensure not to take the cap off the plastic vial.

    Where should I set up my traps?

    Place your trap in areas such as; wardrobes, large draws, cupboards, or near materials that require protection and have suffered previous damage. If you have natural carpets, these also provide ideal egg laying sites for the Clothes Moth, so you may also wish to place a trap in such an area. The traps can be hung up or placed on a flat surface.

    How many traps do I need?

    One trap is sufficient for one particular infestation area. To cover larger areas we suggest one trap every 25m2.

    How long do the traps last?

    To keep each trap active, replace the first pheromone lure after 6 weeks, and use the second lure provided. Each trap is supplied with two lures to give each trap a minimum of 12 weeks catching time. When the traps are full of moths, replace with new traps.

    You can purchase replacement Clothes Moth lures here.

    Can I store the lures?

    If lures are to be stored and not used upon receipt, you may store them in a fridge or freezer.

    When should I set up my traps?

    Clothes Moths can be active all year round at indoor temperatures, so set up the trap whenever you wish to control your infestation.

    Also apply our Clothes Moth Egg Killer Trichogramma Cards for complete control over your infestation

    Trichogramma are very small parasitic wasps, almost impossible to see with the naked eye. They seek out Clothes Moth eggs and lay their own eggs inside them, parasitising the Clothes Moth eggs. They are harmless to humans and animals and remain only for as long as there are Clothes Moth eggs present.

    Combine use of our Trichogramma Cards and Clothes Moth Traps for total control over your Clothes Moth infestation.

    Please do not release the Trichogramma wasps close to the traps. They will not be attracted to the traps but may fly in by accident and get stuck on the glue. Place the cards away from where you have set up your traps.
