Flat out - THIS WORKS on clothes moths. P-E-R-I-O-D!
I live in the Pac-NW, USA. My 88 year old mom is a bit of a hoarder. Her sister (whom was 93) recently passed away. My mom has literally closet after closet after closet of clothes she never wears, nor will ever wear again. But by-God, you better not get rid of any them because she "needs them". Well naturally, after her sister passed away, mom took her clothes too. However, well before her passing she told my mom she "thought she'd seen a moth". Within a month my mothers house was infested with clothes moths. They were everywhere. Flying all over the house, on the walls, ceiling, everywhere.
Here's what I learned:
My mom had a big vintage sour kraut crock she used as a container for squirrel food - corn, nuts, seeds, etc. This container was right by these huge, massive, ultra thick, disgusting curtains that went all the way to the ground. Surprise! The honey hole. And the moths moved further down into the carpet area as well. But, this area was "city center" of the invasion. I dumped the crock container of squirrel food outside by a tree and it was as if a swarm of moths exploded once the critter mix hit the ground. I was shocked! Back inside, we found these obtrusive theater style curtains were a haven for the moths. So we broke out the shop vac and spent the better part of an afternoon...sucking. Once we went through every solitary single set of the disgusting curtains, I noticed when I looked up to the ceiling; LARVA. All freaking over the ceiling. It was like a horror movie. Predominantly in the brightest rooms with the most amount of natural sunlight. Getting rid of the larva now has resulted in having to get the ceiling repainted because of larva guts.
If you think these traps are a magic bullet, you're wrong. There is no magic bullet for a massive moth infestation. I've tried to set a picture as to the situation I had to deal with before the traps were even in place. Once the traps arrived, I realized (very quickly) I should have tripled my initial order. Reason being, even after all my due diligence (finding the primary food source, hang out spots, breading ground, etc.,) I went through my first batch of these bait traps like and old magicians card trick called, 52 card pick up. I no more got them in the holders, strung with fishing line hanging from the ceiling throughout the house, then I realized I had already starting getting massive hits. In a mere day or two, the bait traps were congested with these vile creatures. Exactly like the pictures show.
Replacing bait traps, changing locations, constantly monitoring the ceiling for larva has been a process now that we're well beyond our 6th month. But it's now almost over. The reason why it's almost over is because of these bait traps, and the work necessary to lessen the infestation. Now we're down to 3 traps and over this past winter (2016/17) I've only tagged a few moths. But the traps are staying up. And they're going to stay up and replaced frequently for sometime to come; Until I'm absolutely, positively sure, all the moths are gone.
These traps work! Will the traps on their own solve your problem? Maybe...And maybe not. You may be in a situation similar to me that took considerable, additional effort to overcome the infestations. But the traps work EXACTLY as described. These traps are a magnet to moths. But if you got a moth problem and you really don't want it to get worse than it is, I HIGHLY recommend that you purchase 2 or 3 times more of these traps than you really need. You may think you got them all, but all it takes is a single moth to start a vicious cycle all over again.
Moral of the story? Don't get yourself in a moth situation to begin with. It's a nightmare.
I'm very thankful for a pest control product that really does what it says it will do. You got moths? Get Kritterkill.
