ProPest Clothes Moth Trap

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. The ProPest Pheronet Clothes Moth Traps no longer come with pheromone vials, instead they come with a pheromone impregnated glue.

How To Use:


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.


Trap Size: 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 3/4"

    5 of 5 stars  This works
    By Edward in Winthrop, MA on 04/27/2009
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    3 of 5 stars  Are the positive reviews fake?
    By Ed in winchester, ma 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.

    5 of 5 stars  Best Traps EVER!
    By David in Turlock, CA 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!

    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!

    5 of 5 stars  Excellent moth traps!
    By Patti in NJ 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!

    NO STARS .It doesn't work. Moths flying around and seen on fabric, but none on the traps. I called and was told I probably have the wrong type of moths. It might help if your literature described which moths the traps work on.

    2 of 5 stars  Not as good as expected
    By Phyllis in Marlboro, NY on 05/14/2012
    Verified Purchase

    These traps were definitely not as good as expected. The glue is only moderately sticky so the moth has to really settle onto it before he gets stuck. I had used the spray first so I only had a few stray moths left after spraying and I put the trap right next to the moth and he was not the least bit interested in it. I finally had to set the trap over the moth and he flew around inside the trap and bumped into the wall several times before he finally became stuck. Next time I'll probably just use the spray and pass on the traps.

    1 of 5 stars  ProPest Clothes Moth Traps
    By E. in Canton, MA on 04/13/2012

    After 2 weeks of placing two clothes moth traps in my home on separate floors I did not catch one moth. I had a serious moth infestation for approx. one month. I did go to Home Depot and got Pet/Child Safety spray for flying insects and it worked great. It is a combination of plant oils. As far as these moth traps go, I would never purchase them again. Waste of my money. I would not give it a rating of one star, except that it is required.

    By Mira in Cambridge, MA on 08/01/2011

    I learned so much from this website about my moth problem. What kind I have, where to look, what to do. I had a veritable infestation. They were circling the lights at night, dive-bombing the computer screen. I'd smooth ten in the staircase at it's peak. It's all over now. The culprit Persian rugs in the moist basement have been dealt with and won't be moving back. But the traps did little. I had two in a four floor 3-4000 sq foot house. Caught maybe six moths each after a few days when I'm telling you there were hundreds.

    I set up the traps as soon as they arrived, but have caught nothing as of this writing. I know I have clothes moths in the house, because I just discovered some holes in one of my favorite wool ties. I don't know if the traps had already lost their "power" or what, but they don't seem to be working.

    By Janice in South Bend, WA on 01/05/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I don't know what's happening with ProPest's products but they just aren't as good as the original order I received and was very happy with; however, this last order was effective on one moth. I'm assuming he got tired and only landed for a rest, because others fly right past the traps and are either blind or there is nothing in the traps but glue. Where's a pheromone which is attractive to the moths luring them to the traps? Did you forget it? Or are you cutting corners and trying to save money? This formula is barely effective. Go back to your original formula that worked and stop wasting paper, glue and your time and my money. This review has nothing to do with my satisfaction with DoMyOwnPestControl.com I'm very pleased with them; just not this product.

    By C.a. in TX on 11/28/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I like that the whole trap is active with lure after pulling off the protective paper. My judgement finds this catches more moths on all sides. I've tried Safer brand with a separate lure patch that sometimes I can drop centered and sometimes ends up stuck close to an edge. I can counter that issue by putting the lure into the sticky and then folding the trap, but seems the other side never catches as many bugs.

QNumber 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!

AThe 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.

QWhat 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?

AYou 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.

QWhat is a treatment for moth eating fabric in stored clothes in drawers and closets.

AYou 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.

QMoths 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?

AThe 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.

QCan I put cedar chips or other moth repellants in the same closet?
I want to put this trap in a closet. Is it ok to put cedar chips or other moth repellants in the same closet? Also, is one trap enough for a 2,400 sq flat with 8 rooms, considering the fact that it'll be in a closet? I'm not sure the infestation is in that closet but that's where I have valuable stuff and I also see the moths there. Can you help me figure out what to use and what not to and how much of each?

ABy putting moth balls or cedar chips into the same area as the ProPest Clothes Moth Trap you could cause a situation where you would cover up the pheromone of the trap and stop the moths from entering it. If the closet is already infested with clothes moths it is very doubtful that moth balls or cedar chips would be helpful. You need to completely clean the closet out and clean or get rid of infested items. Apply one or two pheromone traps for the entire home to remove the male moths from the breeding pool and to monitor the infestation. Failure to find the actual infested items will lead to a prolonged infestation. Please take a few moments to read our article How to Get Rid of Clothes Moths to learn more about how to eliminate this pest.

QIs ProPest Clothes Moth Traps and the one for cracks pet/cat safe?

AThe 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.

QIs the ProPest Clothes Moth Trap a good choice to get rid of varied carpet beetles as well?
I did a search for "varied carpet beetle phereomone traps" and the ProPest product came up as an option. In reading actual product descriptions, there is no mention of helping catch the beetles, so I wanted to find out if this was a good choice for them or if there's another product. While there are a few moths at home, the beetles are what I find creeping around more often. Also, I am looking for one that is non-toxic to pets, as I have a cat. Any advice would be really appreciated!

ANo, ProPest Pheronet Clothes Moth Traps are labeled for clothes moths only. We do have a product that is labeled for varied carpet beetles called Varied Carpet Beetle Kit. Put the pheromone lure inside the trap and fold the trap's bottom following the dotted lines. Install traps anywhere from shelves to floors where carpet beetles are.

QWhat's the difference between a Webbing and a Case making moth. We think ours came in with some corn meal.

A

If you suspect the moth came into your structure in corn meal, you may have a species of pantry moth not a web or case making moth (you will find damage to clothing or rugs etc). Please discard any items that have been infested and store all other pantry items in air tight containers. We carry a Pantry Pest Kit that will be great for treatment but we recommend that you get the moth properly identified. Please contact your local extension office for a proper id of the insect first.

QHi, which of your products would be best for getting rid of clothes moths?
They've already snacked on some of my good wool clothing.

A

Clothes moth larvae need the Vitamin B found in soilage to survive. That is why clean garments are far less likely to suffer clothes moth damage.  The best prevention for clothes moth damage is vacuuming the home refularly and cleaning woolen garments before storing them in airtight containers.

  • All fabric pests need higher humidity to survive, so air conditioning and heating help to lower humidity to deter infestations.

  • Dry cleaning is a very effective method of clothes moth control because it kills all stages of fabric pests.

  • Beat and brush woolens and like materials once or twice a month to dislodge or crush eggs and young larvae.

  • Inspect areas where larvae may feed, such as along edges of carpeting, under furniture, and in folds of stored clothing.

  • ProPest Clothes Moths Traps come with a virtually odorless pheromone pack to attract moths.  A safe and easy way to monitor and reduce a population.

  • You can spray a broad-spectrum liquid insecticide such as Suspend SC around the perimeter of rooms and closets and in cracks and crevices.

  • A dust such as Tempo Dust can be applied to heavily infested areas which cannot be reached with a liquid spray. Dusts should not be used directly on clothing or areas which will come in direct contact with skin.

QWhat is the range that your product will attract the moths?
I live in a high rise and some units have moths. I have not seen any in my unit but want to make sure. However, I do not want to attract moths from the hall or other units. How far away will the moths sense your product?

AThe manufacturer does not spefically provide a range of distance in which the ProPest Clothes Moth Trap will lure moths. Although, only 1-2 traps are recommended her household. We doubt that the ProPest Clothes Moth Trap will lure moths from the outside of your unit but will ensure that they are trapped shoukld they enter your home.
