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 strong pheromones to lure adult moths and trap them. Our clothes moth traps offer a cost-effective and easy-to-use natural pest control solution to moths damaging your rugs, carpets, and clothing. Our clothes moth traps lasts 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 product
I have used these traps for many years and they are great. I live in an old farm house and clothes moths are (were) a big problem. Without them I would have ruined clothes. Also use the pantry moths and they are equally effective. I write the date on the bottom so I know when to replace them which I do faithfully. Would not be without them. I like the fact that there are no chemicals to spray or leave a residue.
Review RateTerrific product. Must be up-to-date to be effective.
The best product out there. I've been using them for 8 years, and only had something go astray once. I think a particular store must have had an out-dated batch because none of the traps I bought there worked. I bought the others elsewhere and have always had great success.
Review RateThey work great!I have bought these a couple of times over the past years and they work really well. Clearly trap moths.
Review RateBest YetI have been buying these traps for 3 years and they have saved my clothes from holes that we have suffered from for many previous years . Highly recommended.
Review Ratebest everI switch out the traps every 3 months after a disaster in which the moths ate everything...silk, wool, synthetics.

Review Rategreat moth trapsAfter surveying all the moth trap brands- this one has proved consistently the best. easy to use and effective!!
Review RateSuccess with Moth TrapsWe brought the moth traps and saw the results in 3 days.
Review RateWhere Are the Moths?I had great expectations for this product. So far out of 8 traps, there have been only 3 moths and it has been over a week that I have hung these. I hung 2 in a room where I saw moths crawling on the ceiling, but only 1 moth was caught in that room. I don't know if I got a pheramone piece that didn't get applied well or not, but I'm very disappointed in this product and will look for another one.

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.

Natural & Organic Controls for Clothes Moths
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 safe and 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 a Natural Solution?
Natural solutions 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.
