The problem: The larvae of clothes moths (Tineola bisselliella) feed on natural fibres such as wool, cotton, fur and feathers. Adult females can lay up to 200 eggs in clusters directly on clothing or fabric and, after hatching, it is the larvae which feed on the fabric leaving characteristic small holes in garments. With only one hole needed to ruin an item, preventing this pest from inhabiting drawers and cupboards is key to keep clothes in a wearable condition.
The product: Clothes Moth Traps contain natural clothes moth pheromone to attract adult males which get stuck on the glue and are unable to escape.

How to use:
Clothes Moth traps should be placed in the area at risk from clothes moth attack.
- Remove the paper sheet covering the glue and separate the two traps by tearing along the perforated join.
- Fold the trap and insert the flap into the slot to create a triangular structure.
- To save having to remember, mark the outside of the card with the date the card is setup.
- If using within a wardrobe, hang the trap from either a clothes hanger or the clothes rail.
- If using within a drawer or on a shelf, place the trap so it can be clearly seen.
Traps should not be placed near to, or in confined areas with, moth repelling products (such as cedar wood or lavender).
Successful long-term control of clothes moth often requires a combined approach. Andermatt Home & Garden Clothes Moth Traps should be used alongside other measures such as washing (and where appropriate ironing) of clothes, cleaning dust and hair from clothes storage areas.
