The Demothivator

Clothes moths are a major pest in clothing and textiles as their larvae feed on the protein found in animal products such as wool, leather and silk. They eat away at the fabric and create holes. They reproduce rapidly and without monitoring or prevention, an infestation can become out of control before you detect the moth presence.

Russell IPM’s Clothes Moth Trap  is a discreet and effective prebaited sticky trap that monitors and detects infestation at an early stage. It effectively traps the male specimens of the pale backed clothes moth, Monopis crocicapitella, and the webbing cloth moth, Tineola bisselliella, without the need for using insecticides. Instead, the trap’s adhesive layer contains a pheromone which specifically targets these moths.

The trap  is odourless to humans and will not leave behind a bad smell.

It operates around the clock, with minimal service required. Regular trap catch counts inform you as to whether or not you have a problem and how serious the problem may be.

  1.  Remove the release paper covering the glue and form the trap into the triangular shape as shown in the diagram.
  2. Write the date on the trap.
  3. Place the trap on a shelf in your living room or on top of a wardrobe in a bedroom.
  4. Leave the trap for at least 3 months before returning to see what you have caught.
