GreenWay Clothes Moth Traps are an alternative to pesticides and moth balls. The product is non-toxic, ready-to-use, long-lasting, and child and pet safe. Capture male and reproductive female clothes moths by placing one GreenWay trap on the floor and one on a shelf in the closet or room. Ideal to be used around items containing wool, fur, feathers, or other animal hairs. Traps can be used year round.
The pheromone in this trap will attract both Webbing and Casemaking Clothes Moths. Please see the attachments to identify which moth species you have.
Directions for Use: Remove protective paper from trap to expose sticky surface. Take round, wool pheromone lure out of package and place in the middle of the sticky surface on the trap. Place the trap where there may be clothes moth activity. Capture male and reproductive female moths by placing one GreenWay trap on the floor and one on the shelf in the closet or room with items containing wool, fur, feather or other animal hairs. Replace traps every 2 months or when the trap is full. Store unopened lures in a cool, dry area.
Received these in the mail and set them up in my room mid-June. My infestation isn't insane yet, so they caught 4 to 6 each. As June wore on, I noticed no new moths. I figured the problem was solved! Maybe the moths were caught before they could breed? Then today, one of the last few days of July, ALAS! A young moth chillin' on the sleeve of a shirt in my wardrobe. I thought I'd get a little more mileage on my traps, but 1 month+ is pretty good too.
Actually horrified is more like it. And these are the only traps I've found that ALSO attract female moths, which is so very, very important for obvious reasons. The bad news is that the scented pad that attracts the moths only lasts for 2-3 months and you can't buy extra pads, you have to purchase the traps, too. Still in all, they really do work and it's more expensive to throw away or reweave your clothes than it is to pay for the traps.
I was not sure if my moth problem involved clothes moths or some other type (though there had been some damage to a few clothing items) so I got these traps in addition to some for pantry moths. I put out two of these GreenWay clothes moth traps in the morning and in the evening I was shocked at how many moths had been captured that first day. Very effective.
Wow- 2 moths in the first 24 hours a week later, 12 moths I'm actually freaked out that it caught that many moths- i didn't think the situation was that bad. Lots of handknit socks and sweaters here so always have an eye out for clothes moths.
