Mottlock Clothes Moth pheromone sticky trap refill pack

(9 customer reviews)

£10.00

Your Mottlock Clothes Moth Box pheromone sticky trap will last for around three months, after which it will stop giving off its scent of a beautiful lady moth to male moths in the area. If you have de-mothed your house then you will need to keep the moth trap charged with fresh pheromones in order to keep the males out of the breeding cycle, and to keep an eye on moth populations in your home.

Description

How to know when to replace the pheromone sticky trap?

It’s recommended to write the date of when you set the pheromone sticky trap. That way you can keep an eye on it and when 3 months are up, replace the trap. Then write in the new date, or put a sticky label over it. If you replace the trap carefully you can keep using the original box indefinitely.

How to replace the pheromone sticky trap without getting into a mucky mess.

The title of the product is a clue as to what it might be like to handle: sticky. (No, you can’t smell anything unless you’re a male common clothes moth!). There’s a bit around the edge that isn’t sticky. And a single strip of regular stickiness that sticks the refill card to the inside of the box. Carefully grip the old sticky trap around the edges, and peel it away from the box. Admire all the dead moths stuck on it then chuck it in the bin. Then peel the backing paper off the new pheromone sticky trap card and carefully insert it into the box. The back is pretty sticky so if you just lay it into position it should stick without having to press it down or anything.

What if the pheromone sticky trap sticks to the front of the box by mistake?

This can happen as the trap is a sticky piece of kit. The main thing is not to panic. It will still work. There is just less of it for the moth to stick to. If you’re very careful you can gently push it away from the front of the trap. I do recommend you wear gloves if you try this though.

Do all moths eat clothes?

No way! There are thousands of species of moth and only three of these eat woollen garments in the UK. Clothes moths are actually very useful out in the wild as they eat owl pellets, old nests and other things that would take a lot longer to biodegrade if the moth larvae didn’t help. The pheromone trap only attracts clothes moths, so it gives an indication of whether the moths you see in the home are in fact clothes moths or other species. If the trap isn’t attracting them then they’re not guilty. Just make sure you place the trap somewhere away from any moth deterrents you have in the home as this will give Mr Moth cognitive dissonance if he detects both together. He will scent the irresistible lure of a female moth wanting to mate, coupled with the revolting stink of lavender and be at a complete loss as to which direction to fly in.

    Fantastic!

    Works really well, moths are definitely caught by them. Other methods are also needed to tackle the pest problem completely but this has definitely given me confidence that they are not all roaming free, eating through my clothes.

    Great defence against clothes moths

    I have been using these clothes moths traps now for a few years and after trying many other brands these seem to work best and catch a lot of moths, quite worrying really the amount that get stuck to them but obviously the moths are attracted to them so they do work very well

    It works!

    By far the most effective product of its type

    Amazing!

    This really works! Left it in my wardrobe and each day more moths have appeared on there. Very useful especially when you thought you may have killed them all with bug spray! You can’t go wrong with this product.

    Actually works

    Ok – bought the moth traps for my son who lives in London and has a horrendous moth problem (even got into the flour!).
    After 2 hours 4 had been caught, but disappointingly after 24hrs only 7.
    However, once the trap was relocated from the kitchen (after he realised putting a pheromone trap in a kitchen wasn’t the smartest move) the count rapidly went up to 20 within the day.
    The total (after 5 days) is 37.

    Work well but overpriced at £10 for 2

    Photo shows one of the refills in a Mottlock box ( box purchased already).
    They work well to attract male moths but the refill pack of 2 are expensive. These were the cheapest I could buy. I have bought these before because they work but at £5 each….?
