DressBand clothes moth trap is a cardboard trap designed to target clothes moths in the home.
Once assembled, the DressBand clothes moth trap forms a triangle shape. The inside of the triangle is coated with a non-toxic and environmentally safe pheromone glue. The pheromone tricks male moths into thinking there is a female in the area. When the male moth follows the scent and lands on the trap, they become trapped in the glue.
DressBand can be easily placed, hung, or fastened into any place that experiences a problem with moths, such as wardrobes or carpets. Each DressBand will remain effective for up to 3 months.

How to Get Rid of Clothes Moths
Clothes moths are renowned for damaging the most expensive, natural fibres, such as cashmere, wool and silk. They will also go for cotton and carpet fibres, should their favourite foods not be on offer. Prevention is always better than cure and often a lot less expensive. Moths to look out for include the common clothes moth (bronze, beige wings and 6-7mm long) and the brown house moth (black mottled wings and 8mm long). Should they reproduce and lay their eggs, they will hatch and start to feed on clothes and carpet fibres.
