Product Overview

Tip from the manufacturer: Do not use more than 2 traps in your home at a time. Using more than the recommended number of traps can make your home over saturated with the attractant and the moths will become confused and will not enter the traps.

ProPest Pheronet Clothes Moth Traps will lure and kill webbing cloth moths, the most common type of clothes moth. The traps can be placed onto shelves or hung using  string or zip ties. The ProPest Pheronet Clothes Moth Traps no longer come with pheromone vials, instead they come with a pheromone impregnated glue.

This product is best used in conjunction with a crack and crevice aerosol to treat under and around baseboards and door frames in the infested area.  We recommend D-Force HPX Aerosol to treat these areas.

ProPest Pheronet Clothes Moth Traps will lure and kill webbing cloth moths, the most common type of clothes moth. The traps can be placed onto shelves or hung using  string or zip ties.

To use this trap simply remove the release paper on the trap to expose the glue. The trap is already pre-baited with pheromones, so all you need to do is form the trap into a box form and hang it in areas of moth activity.

The trap can be hung with a hook, hanger, string, zip tie or secured to a wall or other surface with double-sided tape.

    This works

    My wife was in despair about her knitting stash. The moths were eating the wool yarn and our clothes. We have cats and dogs so wanted a safe system. I previously had good luck with Japanese Beetle Pheromone traps over my roses, so I hung one ProPest Clothes Moth Trap up in each affected room and within 2 weeks we had hundreds of stuck moths and only a few lonely females flying around. Better and safer than poisons or moth balls.

    Are the positive reviews fake?

    By Ed on 12/05/2011

    There is a split in reviews between one star and five star that is concerning. The one star reviews sound like they were written by real customers. Several of the five star reviews are suspiciously similar, generic and sound like they were from the manufacturer's brochure. Concerning as posting fake reviews is a fairly common practice with internet businesses these days.

    Excellent moth traps!

    By Patti on 07/08/2011

    Verified Purchase

    I have used these moth traps for 8 months after extensive damage to clothing in closets. They are excellent and I highly recommend them. Do not be alarmed if at first they seem to be doing nothing. I put them in problematic closets and first couple of weeks we caught nothing. We then went away for an extended vacation and upon our return the traps were full. We are on our third set and we always keep them in our closet from here on out. I will NEVER be without them! NOTE: TWO THINGS: 1. They need to be changed every three to four months to keep attracting moths. 2. Do not put too many in a closet, as actually I read that it confuses them w too much of the pheromone. Just one trap per closet!

    ProPest Clothes Moth Trap

    By Ellen on 06/04/2010

    Verified Purchase

    Unfortunately, these "pre-baited" packs do not work as well as the old model traps where you had to put the pheromone bait in place yourself. I had these traps out for 2 weeks before a moth was caught. I have 6-month old previous model traps that are doing a better job. I will probably not be purchasing this item again. Please bring back the old style trap!

    Best Traps EVER!

    By David on 11/14/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I bought another brand of trap that was locally available at the hardware store. It didn't do anything. The ProPest trap is FANTASTIC! We have a very old item that was pulled from a basement and was moth infested. When I opened the ProPest strip, the moths literally came flying out and were all over the place. GREAT trap!

Q
Number of traps per house- says only 2 but I have 3 floors, and still have moths in basement.

Help please! manufacturer says "2 traps per house" but instructions say "put in closet". Can I use one per floor in a 3 floor house so 3 total, without having too much pheromone and confusing them? I still have some moths in the basement but upstairs is better! Also, doesn't putting them in closets lure them INTO the closet? thanks!

A
The pheromone traps can be used wherever you have an issue, its just that a closet is normally the most common place.  One trap per floor is perfectly fine.  You just don't want much more than that per level because it can confuse the moths.

Q
What is the best product to use for clothes moths?

I have a clothes moth problem, but I don't think it is the web type moth. I don't see any webs anywhere. Any ideas on what I should use?

A

You most likely do not see any webbing because you have not found the source of the infestation. Use a ProPest Clothes Moth Trap in the area to monitor if they are clothes moths.  If they are, then you should keep this product hanging to capture new ones and monitor the situation. You must find the source of the infestation (wool or other organic fabrics) and either clean it thoroughly or discard the infested item.  You should also use a crack and crevice aerosol to treat under and around baseboards and door frames where the larvae hang out.  We recommend using D-Force HPX Aerosol for treatment of these areas.

Q
What is a treatment for moth eating fabric in stored clothes in drawers and closets.
A
You will need to inspect the area and clean and/or discard infested items. You will then need to spray the corners and cracks and crevices of the drawers and closets with a product such as Cy-Kick Aerosol. We also recommend using a moth trap such as the Propest Clothes Moth Trap to help you monitor the moth infestation and retreat if necessary.

Q
Is ProPest Clothes Moth Traps and the one for cracks pet/cat safe?
A
The Propest Clothes Moth trap is safe for use in a home with cats as long as you place or hang the trap out of reach of cats. While the traps are not toxic to animals they are sticky and a cat could get stuck to the trap. If this should happen vegetable oil will be needed to remove the trap from the animal. Our crack and crevice sprays are also safe for use around animals. Be sure your pets are out of the area while you are applying the product and they can return to the area as soon as it is dry.

Q
Moths are eating our clothing.

We've use X-lure moth traps in the past but then I accidently ordered pantry moth traps. We really don't have pantry moths but I hoped they would work. What is the best clothing moth trap for our closets?

A
The Pro Pest Clothes Moth trap is our most popular seller. It is important to remember that the clothing moth traps only lure and trap the adult male moth so the traps should only be used as part of your clothing moth control program.  It is very important to find the infested items and get them cleaned or thrown away to achieve complete control. It may also be helpful to you to read our How to Get rid of Clothes Moths article.
