My deceased mother used them in the closets and they were full of moths on the sticky part. I noticed moths getting into my house from the front porch light when I opened the door. So I repurchased 4 boxes (8 traps) and replaced old ones. Seems to work trapping moths. Before when I had old traps that were full of moths, I just happened to notice more than several shirts with very small holes in them. Washing maybe, but never in years had this happened to the same style shirts.Date published: 2016-09-20Rated 4 out of 5 by Rose13 from catches moths This catches moths. I put it in closets. I put a date on the outside and then count and date when I counted the caught moths. And then keep track over a few weeks if it is catching more by counting and dating. It tells you that you have moths but it is not meant to solve the problem. I did a big clean out 2 years ago but still see the moths. Still I recommend. I have to figure out where they are.Date published: 2016-08-09Rated 1 out of 5 by Bryan from DIdn't work at all. Its own box kept talking about scent lures but didn't include ANY making the product completely ineffective. Haven't caught a single moth and I can see them all the time in this small room, I even put them in high traffic areas for the moths.Date published: 2016-07-05Rated 5 out of 5 by MothleyCrue from Works great!

All About Insects the Clothes Moth Trap Controls
The clothes moth is only destructive during the larval stage. Clothing, upholstery, curtains and other furnishings may be ruined by the holes created when the larvae feed. In fact, just about anything made of natural fibers is potentially susceptible to damage by clothes moth larvae.

Natural & Organic Controls for Clothes Moths
Moth pheromone traps often called Clothes Moth Traps can help in controlling clothes moths.
Moth pheromone traps (clothes moth traps) can be used to alert you to moth problems and to monitor the level of infestation. Male meal moths are attracted to the pheromone and enter the trap where it is caught and cannot escape.
The trap should be placed in a clothes closet or area containing upholstery. Carefully read and follow all instructions completely for safe and effective use.
At the first sign of an infestation, place a trap in the home to monitor the level of infestation. Continuous monitoring is extremely important when you have a moth infestation to check the degree of infestation.
Why Choose a Natural Solution?
Natural solutions break down quickly to their natural elements. They are preferable to chemical pesticides that leave residuals where they are sprayed causing long-term detrimental effects on the environment.
Clean clothes, the vacuum, tight fitting storage containers, extreme heat, and freezing temperatures are all methods that can be used to control clothes moths.
Take clothes to the dry cleaners to have the dirt and perspiration removed. Vacuum carpets, rugs, upholstery, baseboards and any other areas that may contain clothes moths. The lids of containers used to store clothing or fabric materials should fit very tightly so the tiny hatchlings cannot crawl inside.
Extreme heat can kill clothes moths if the temperature is high enough -- something that may be accomplished by washing clothes above 120 degrees F. or placing them in a hot attic for about 30 minutes.
On the opposite end, freezing may also kill the clothing moth if the temperature is below 18 degrees F. and the material is kept at that temperature for several days. Note: If you are freezing woolen materials, be sure to remove as much air from the plastic freezer bag as possible.
Take clothes to the dry cleaners to have the dirt and perspiration removed when they become soiled or dirty. Vacuum carpets, rugs, upholstery, baseboards and any other areas on a regular basis, especially if you have noticed symptoms of an infestation.
When placing clothing and other materials in a container, carefully inspect the lid and the container -- the lid should fit very tightly so the tiny hatchlings cannot crawl inside - this should be done each time you are storing fabric materials, particularly woolen clothing and upholstery.
Extreme heat or freezing can be applied when you find larvae, eggs, or fecal matter on clothing or fabrics.
