TERRO® Clothes Moth Alert
The larvae of webbing clothes moths are a destructive pest that target natural fibers, including wool, fur and certain fabric blends. These pests can go undetected for a long time, leaving your favorite clothes and fabrics permanently damaged. TERRO® Clothes Moth Alert captures clothes moths before they lay eggs. The presence of trapped moths will alert you of a possible infestation.
Uses for Clothes Moth Alert
TERRO® Clothes Moth Alert can be used in and around fabric storage areas. Clothes Moths will be drawn to the pheromone lures in the glue traps, which stops them before they complete their next reproductive cycle.
Most importantly, the presence of clothes moths in your Clothes Moth Alert trap will alert you to the potential of an infestation. Once detected, you should dry clean all clothing or run it through a washing machine. Rugs and furniture with natural fabric should be steam cleaned.
Taking these measures will help to eliminate the clothes moth larvae, which do the actual damage.
How Does Clothes Moth Alert Work?
TERRO® Clothes Moth Alert uses a powerful pheromone to draw clothes moths from their hiding places and into the glue trap. The trap is a simple cardboard structure with a sticky glue on the inside. Prior to deploying the Clothes Moth Alert in your home or business, open up the lure packet and drop the lure on the glue surface.
Once the lure is added, clothes moths will be attracted to the pheromone, land on the glue surface and be unable to escape. Additionally, the design of the Clothes Moth Alert keeps pets and small children from easily accessing the sticky glue surface. Best of all? There's no mothball smell to TERRO® Clothes Moth Alert!
Placement of Clothes Moth Alert
For the best results, place the TERRO® Clothes Moth Alert at eye level in a room or closet. You can also place them underneath dressers, inside drawers or in cabinets that contain fabrics targeted by the clothes moth larvae. Hang from a string or clothes hanger as necessary.
Replace the TERRO® Clothes Moth Alert every 12 weeks, or more frequently as needed.

Moved into a house with a cloth moth problem and I have been using these Terro cloth moth traps for a few months now and they do work for sure but they have to be replaced every couple of months (even though the packaging says every 12 weeks). I wish there was a better, more permanent solution. Maybe I'll try some other products as well but i'm pretty sure they are all about the same.

Review RateThey don't work
I purchased these to put into 2 clothes closets which I have moths in 3 weeks ago. One trap was put into each closet. They do not work. There are no moths caught in the traps yet there are moths flying around the closet and even right by the traps. I think a different type of lure be needs to be developed since the existing type doesn't work.Response From Terro®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGreat product
These traps are amazing. I did not realize I had such a clothes moth problem until I opened the package and those moths started swarming around the traps. Within a half an hour of opening the packages I had at least 50 moths in the traps (I had purchased 4 traps).
Review RateWaste of Time and Money!
Despite reviews, I decided to try these. Your ant traps worked well so I thought why not. I am very disappointed with my results. You could do much better than this! After nearly 1 month, 1 trap had 1 moth, the other had 2. Meanwhile, moths flit right by the traps. The lure you include is absolutely ridiculous: it's a fraction of the size of a stamp, not a lot bigger than a good sized moth. I stuck one of the traps in an area I know has a high concentration of moths. Once one of them got stuck on the teeny weeny lure, no other moths bothered. I have gone back to using traps I have to buy from the UK, where they better understand what moths are attracted to. On those, pheremone is all over the sticky surface. They are not 100% either but let me say that I installed 2 traps and caught 6 moths that same day.Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! We are sorry to hear that you have not experienced the success we typically see with this product, and have shared your comments with our Product Managers.
Male clothes moths are the only moths that will be attracted to the lure that is placed in this trap. This interrupts the breeding cycle. If the moths are spending the majority of their time in the kitchen or pantry area, they may not be clothes moths at all.

Review Rateuse a fly swatter
the moth traps are pretty worthless. I only buy them as my partner, she thinks they will have to catch something sooner or later. Yeah, they catch things occasionally--gnats!Response From Terro®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear that you have not experienced the level of success we typically see with this product! The lure in this trap will only attract male clothes moths so the breeding cycle is broken, and has no effect on pantry moths or female moths. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-800-1819 x 458 with any questions.
Review RateProduct did not work.
Not one moth was trapped in four of your traps. It was a total waste of time and money for me. This was a surprise as I have used your other products successfully in the past.Response From Terro®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are very sorry to hear the desired results were not seen. For the best results, we recommend using one or two traps per average sized room. This trap is designed to alert you to a potential problem and is designed to trap the adult moths to stop the breeding cycle.

Review RateCan't reisist the pheromones
We've been battling clothes moths for years. We extinguish them in one room, and they show up in another. Well, come to find out that you only notice them after they've multiplied quite a bit. We needed a way to find out where they were in the house, and these pheromone-baited traps did the trick. And, in case you wanted to know the result, they're not in every single room, just most of them.
THe clothes moth traps are extremely effective--killing lots of the little b.....s but I must have a major infestation as I have had traps down (in 3 month bunches) for about 9 months now and I'm still catching a single moth once in a while. Hopefully, they were all virgins.
Review RateDon't work
I bought one box of Terro Clothes Moth traps for around $10 at my local store as I usually buy the Safer brand. The Terro Clothes Moth traps with the white square does not work at all. When I used the other brand, my stick on triangle was full of dead moths. With the Terro, 2 months later there are no moths.Response From Terro®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to share this feedback regarding our TERRO® traps and we apologize that you haven't seen the same great results as in the past.
Are the majority of the moths around your closets or bedrooms? If they are instead near your kitchen cupboards, it is possible that they are pantry moths rather than clothing moths.

You can spot clothes moth destruction in the form of egg patches on fabrics as well as damage from larvae that feed on these natural fabrics. Larvae leave small, irreparable holes in fabric. Look for these holes plus webbing and dried larvae cases on your clothing and fabrics.
