How Do I Know If I Have Moth Infestation?
For Closet Moths:
- Closely examine your cherished woolen sweater or that exquisite silk scarf reserved for special occasions. Are you detecting any holes, thin areas, or indications of damage for which you are not responsible? These are unmistakable indicators of a clothing moth infestation.
- Search for the presence of silken threads or tunnels. The larvae of these cunning creatures often construct protective cases around themselves, frequently leaving a trail of silk in their wake.
- Be vigilant for adult moths, as they are a clear indication
of an infestation. However, they tend to be elusive, favoring darkness and hiding. Clothing moths are relatively small, measuring approximately half an
inch in size, and possess wings with a golden hue.
For Pantry Moths:
- The most obvious sign is the presence of adult moths in your kitchen or pantry area. These moths are usually small and may have a brownish or grayish color.
- Check your food items for small, white or cream-colored larvae
or caterpillars. They may be crawling on the surface of food packaging or inside food containers.
- Pantry moths often leave behind silk webbing in food packages or on shelves. This webbing is a result of their larvae spinning cocoons.

My traps haven’t caught any clothing moths. What do I do?
To begin, keep in mind that the absence of moths in the trap does not always indicate an absence of moths within your home. These clever little creatures excel at the game of hide and seek, potentially lurking in concealed corners or deep within your wardrobe and kitchen.
Ensure that you have removed the protective sheet from the adhesive in the trap. In case it has skipped your eye. Dispose of items that are particularly infested. Vacuum and wipe infested areas with a straightforward cleaning solution.
Verify the placement of your traps. The most effective locations for these traps are inside or near the affected areas, preferably within your closet, pantry storage or wherever you have observed the most damage. To maximize their effectiveness, position one trap high and another one down low on the floor, if possible, as these cunning intruders tend to favor those areas.
However, it is also plausible that you may be dealing with a different moth species, or the moths could be in a different stage of their lifecycle that is not attracted to the pheromones (such as larvae). Conducting a thorough inspection of the area can assist in clarifying the situation.
Patience and persistence are of the essence. If you keep having difficulty do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further support.
How to differentiate between a clothing moth and a pantry moth?
The first of these intruders, known as the clothes moth, could be considered a discerning fashion critic. They possess a distinct preference for natural fibers such as wool, silk, fur, and feathers. Typically, you'll discover them merrily cavorting in your wardrobe, indulging in your beloved woolen sweaters or treasured silk scarves. They don't show much interest in your kitchen provisions.
Conversely, the pantry moth, officially recognized as the Indian meal moth, is a culinary enthusiast but often in the wrong location. They make appearances in your kitchen or wherever you stash your food supplies. Their culinary preferences lean toward grains, cereals, nuts, dried fruits, and an array of other stored edibles. They steer clear of your clothing and concentrate on pilfering your pantry.
In terms of appearance, there's a noticeable contrast. Clothes moths tend to be smaller, measuring roughly half an inch, and come in varying shades of light gold or brownish tones. On the contrary, pantry moths are a bit larger, boasting a wingspan of around 5/8 of an inch, and feature a distinctive reddish-brown coloring on the outer edges of their wings.
Now that you possess this knowledge, you're better prepared to tackle these unwelcome guests.
Did any person or your pet touch the glue on the trap? How to get it off?
Do not worry or panic. Our traps are non-toxic. If you happen to get some glue on your hands, resist the urge to rub or scratch to avoid spreading the adhesive. You will need to summon a common household item: Vegetable Oil.
Apply the oil generously to the sticky area and gently rub it in. The oil should start to dissolve the adhesive. After a couple of minutes, wipe it off with a warm soapy cloth, then rinse with warm water. Repeat the process if necessary.
Patience is key in this operation, much like in our battle against clothing moths. Be gentle with your skin and give it time.
In the future, please handle the traps by the edges to avoid direct contact with the adhesive.
