Safer® Brand Clothes Moth Trap - 16 Traps
Clothes moths have a funny way of finding their way into your nicest clothing--that's why these pests are often called wool moths or cashmere moths.
If you think you have a moth infestation in your home, use our pheromone moth traps to diagnose and identify the problem.
The Safer® Brand Clothes Moth Alert Trap uses pheromones to lure adult moths and trap them. Our clothes moth traps offer a cost-effective and easy-to-use pest control solution to moths damaging your rugs, carpets, and clothing. Our clothes moth traps last up to 12 weeks as they trap adult moths, not larvae.
Using our clothes moth traps gives you effective moth control and an easy way to identify a problem if moth deterrents such as mothballs or moth repellents are not working.
We recommend using our clothes moth traps to attract the clothes moth and then Safer® Brand Flying Insect Killer to kill the clothes moth and other flying insects on contact. This trap-spray combo is the perfect 1-2 punch to eliminate moths and prevent moth holes in clothes.
What Do Moths Eat?
Interestingly enough, moths are not your main worry when dealing with clothing damage. Instead, you should worry about pesky clothes moth larvae. These larvae are so persistent that your clothing can very quickly turn into moth clothing. Moth larvae love to snack on wool, cashmere, and other animal hair fibers and can easily destroy hundreds of thousands of dollars in clothing in a very short amount of time. Pheromone moth traps attract adult moths and kill them before it's possible for them to reproduce.
Directions for Use:
- Hang clothes moth traps at eye level in closet and rooms to be protected. Pay special attention to items containing wool, cashmere, or other animal hair.
- Use one or two clothes moth traps for an average size room. Too many traps in one area may confuse the moth and make the trap appear not to work properly.
- Replace clothes moth traps after 12 weeks or when trap is full.

Review RateGreat preventive option.
We have been using these moth traps for years with excellent results. Clothe Moth have been a real problem in New Orleans and the Safer Moth Traps are very effective in preventing infestations in our home.
Review Rategood traps
there is no question. These pantry moth traps really work
Review RateOut of 3 purchases only happy with 1st purchase.
I've purchased traps 3 times. The first time was in June and they worked great. The 2nd time was in September and not 1 moth was caught. I attributed it to the colder weather and thought the moths were in hibernation. The 3rd time was in March. I have been seeing moths flying or on the walls and ceilings but not any have been caught in the traps. I placed the traps in the same locations as the 1st time I purchased them each time. Is it possible that the batch the traps came from is bad or they were held for too long and the effectiveness has expired.Response From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot effective
It does not look as if the traps are working. They have be in place for two weeks and while we have moths flying around, none are in the traps. We have been using your traps for many years and they have been effective in the past.Response From Safer Brand®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
If too many traps are used in one area, it may confuse the moths and make the trap appear to not work properly. We recommend using one or two traps for an average size room.

Review RateNot working
not really working. Very disappointingResponse From Safer Brand®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Too many traps in one area may confuse the moths. We recommend using one or two traps in an average sized room. Items containing wool or cashmere will require special attention.

These traps are amazing!
Review RateTHESE TRAPS WORK!
These clothes moth traps work! I have been buying the sixteen pack several times a year and distribute all sixteen around the house all at once. After three months most of the traps are filled with 5-10 dead moths. Highly recommended.
Review RateHard to set up trap with weak instructions
Moths aren't out to be catching but getting prepared for when they are. Setting up the trap wasn't easy, directions weren't clear . More descriptive words would help.

All About Insects the Clothes Moth Trap Controls
The clothes moth is only destructive during the larval stage. Clothing, upholstery, curtains and other furnishings may be ruined by the holes created when the larvae feed. In fact, just about anything made of natural fibers is potentially susceptible to damage by clothes moth larvae.

Controls for Clothes Moths from Safer® Brand
Moth pheromone traps often called Clothes Moth Traps can help in controlling clothes moths.
Moth pheromone traps (clothes moth traps) can be used to alert you to moth problems and to monitor the level of infestation. Male meal moths are attracted to the pheromone and enter the trap where it is caught and cannot escape.
The trap should be placed in a clothes closet or area containing upholstery. Carefully read and follow all instructions completely for effective use.
At the first sign of an infestation, place a trap in the home to monitor the level of infestation. Continuous monitoring is extremely important when you have a moth infestation to check the degree of infestation.
Why Choose Safer® Brand?
Safer® Brand offers solutions that break down quickly to their natural elements. They are preferable to chemical pesticides that leave residuals where they are sprayed causing long-term detrimental effects on the environment.
Clean clothes, the vacuum, tight fitting storage containers, extreme heat, and freezing temperatures are all methods that can be used to control clothes moths.
Take clothes to the dry cleaners to have the dirt and perspiration removed. Vacuum carpets, rugs, upholstery, baseboards and any other areas that may contain clothes moths. The lids of containers used to store clothing or fabric materials should fit very tightly so the tiny hatchlings cannot crawl inside.
Extreme heat can kill clothes moths if the temperature is high enough -- something that may be accomplished by washing clothes above 120 degrees F. or placing them in a hot attic for about 30 minutes.
On the opposite end, freezing may also kill the clothing moth if the temperature is below 18 degrees F. and the material is kept at that temperature for several days. Note: If you are freezing woolen materials, be sure to remove as much air from the plastic freezer bag as possible.
Take clothes to the dry cleaners to have the dirt and perspiration removed when they become soiled or dirty. Vacuum carpets, rugs, upholstery, baseboards and any other areas on a regular basis, especially if you have noticed symptoms of an infestation.
When placing clothing and other materials in a container, carefully inspect the lid and the container -- the lid should fit very tightly so the tiny hatchlings cannot crawl inside - this should be done each time you are storing fabric materials, particularly woolen clothing and upholstery.
Extreme heat or freezing can be applied when you find larvae, eggs, or fecal matter on clothing or fabrics.
