Clothes Moth Trap
Pest: Clothes Moth
Species: Tineola bisselliella
Sector: Home & Garden
Packaging: 12 x inner cartons of 2 traps per outer box
The ready to use (RTU) Clothes Moth Trap has a triangular (delta) cross section when assembled and is made of laminated card. All three inner faces of the trap are coated with glue to maximise catch. The trap also contains a pheromone lure of liquid appearance that hardens when cooled in production to provide a waxy like deposit on the trap surface. The trap is designed to be stuck to the insides of the wardrobes using the adhesive strip on the rear of the trap; hung up using the euro hook; or free standing when folded.
There is also a Mini Clothes Moth Trap available which comes as a pair of traps perforated down the centre to give 2 small traps.
The ready to use Clothes Moth Trap is designed to be positioned in and around the insides of wardrobes. Male webbing clothes moths are attracted by the pheromone lure, enter the trap and are caught on the non-drying glue on inner surfaces of the trap. A patented black stripe print is also printed on the card to further increase the insect attraction.
Remove the protective paper and then push the tab through the slot to assemble. Ensure the trap location is accessible by moths, avoiding draughty areas. Replace after 12 weeks or when the trap is covered with moths. The traps can be disposed of in the domestic waste.
