Get rid of clothing moths, naturally

Web-spinning moths, case-bearing moths and other clothes moths can cause significant destruction to valuable items in your home, and threaten your Peace and Sanity. As the larvae of clothing moths feed on natural fibers in wool, silk, fur, leather and other keratin-rich fabrics, a clothing moth infestation can completely ruin your most cherished garments.

Dr. Killigan’s Premium Clothing Moth Traps are the best clothes moth traps on the market, ending the clothes moth life cycle by luring in and taking out adult male moths. Using Dr. Killigan’s incredibly potent DOUBLE pheromone formula, along with his world famous glue, these traps provide an all-natural way for you to protect clothes, carpets and more from moths.

The secret sauce in Dr. Killigan’s Premium Clothing Moth Traps

The real trouble with an infestation of clothes moths is their larvae. While the adult moths do not eat clothing, clothes moth larvae have a voracious appetite for keratin, a natural fiber which is found in a wide range of clothes, carpets and other fabrics.

Dr. Killigan’s Premium Clothing Moth Traps feature an advanced formula of double-potent pheromones and the stickiest glue that targets adult male moths and eliminates the reproduction cycle.

Pheromones are very fragile. Their integration requires a proprietary process that relies on a precise temperature that carefully combines our specialized glue and pheromones, thus preserving the integrity of each ingredient. The result is a highly effective attractant that stops clothing moths in their tracks.

Restore the comfort of your home today

Lure in and take out clothes moths, closet moths and carpet moths with Dr. Killigan’s Premium Clothing Moth Traps, meticulously engineered to end the breeding process of these destructive insects.

As a pioneer in moth control, Dr. Killigan’s solutions are backed by hundreds of side-by-side tests along with thousands of satisfied customers, proving that the catch rates for these premium moth traps are consistently higher than knockoffs and other options by alternative brands.

Dr. Killigan’s Premium Clothing Moth Traps feature powerful female pheromones that attract four types of moths*:
  • Webbing clothes moth, also called the common clothes moth or clothing moth (Tineola bisselliella)
  • Case-making moth, also called the case-bearing moth (Tinea pellionella)
  • White-shouldered house moth (Endrosis sarcitrella)
  • Brown house moth (Hofmannophila pseudospretella)
*Note: While these traps are not for use against food moths or gypsy moths, Dr. Killigan’s Premium Pantry Moth Traps can help you solve a pantry moth problem.

In truth, if you are dealing with an infestation of clothes moths, you can’t just throw out a couple of defiled items to eliminate the problem. You must disrupt the mating cycle by eliminating the male moths—or they’ll be right back.

Our premium clothing moth traps are designed to get rid of adult male moths from the reproduction process, preventing female moths from laying eggs that turn into fabric-eating larvae.

Additionally, you can use Dr. Killigan’s Premium Clothing Moth Traps to monitor for signs of clothing moths and prevent a full-blown infestation. Place these traps in closets, on shelves and elsewhere around the home—such as in bedrooms and living rooms—for a first line of defense against hole-making moths.


Frequently Asked Questions

The signs of clothes moth infestation can be as discreet as their destructive activities. But don't worry, Dr. Killigan’s is here to guide you through the signs of their sinister presence.

First off, take a close look at your favorite woolen sweater or that elegant silk scarf you save for special occasions. Do you notice any holes, thin patches or signs of damage that you didn't cause? Those are telltale signs of a clothing moth invasion.

Next, check for silken threads or tunnels. Larvae of these cunning creatures, you see, spin protective cases around themselves, often leaving a trail of silk behind.
Now, notice any discoloration on your clothes? Moths, especially their larvae, can leave behind excrement that may cause staining.

Also, adult moths are a clear sign of infestation. However, they're sly, preferring the dark and tending to hide. The clothing moths are small, about half an inch in size, with golden-colored wings. If you're seeing these fellows flutter around your wardrobe or home, then it's high time to take action.

Finally, the scent. If your closet or the clothes in it start to smell musty, then I'm afraid you might have a moth problem on your hands.

Remember, early detection is the key to easier control. But whether you're catching it early or late in the game, fear not, for Dr. Killigan's products are designed to help you regain your peace of mind, and more importantly, your wardrobe's dignity. To victory, my friend!

Your attention to detail is commendable. You see, there are indeed different species of clothes moths, and their identification can be quite helpful in strategizing their expulsion. Let's delve into the details together.

The most common culprits that you'll likely encounter are the webbing clothes moth (Tineola bisselliella) and the casemaking clothes moth (Tinea pellionella). Both species are pretty similar in size, around half an inch or so, but their distinguishing features set them apart.

The webbing clothes moth is light golden in color, with no markings on their wings. They have reddish golden hairs on the top of their head. This is the more prevalent species and it's these rascals that are more likely turning your favorite garments into their gourmet dinner.

Now, the casemaking clothes moth, on the other hand, has more of a brownish hue with three dark spots on each of their wings. Their name comes from the silken case the larvae drag around for protection while they munch away on your clothes.

And let's not forget about the carpet moth (Trichophaga tapetzella). While they prefer your rugs and carpets, these intruders won't shy away from your clothes either. They're slightly larger and have distinctive white and dark gray bands on their wings.
If you are needing further help with identification, I would recommend contacting Dr. Killigan’s outstanding customer service team to assist you.

Regardless of the species, if you've got clothing moths, Dr. Killigan's is here to help you in your fight. With our arsenal of non-toxic, safe, and effective pest control solutions, you'll send these unwanted guests packing!

You've touched upon one of the most common misunderstandings in the world of household pests. Clothes moths and pantry moths, although both nuisances, have quite different preferences when it comes to their habitats and dining choices. Let's decode their distinct identities, shall we?

The first, the clothes moth, is a fashion critic of sorts. They have a particular taste for natural fibers like wool, silk, fur, and feathers. You'll usually find them frolicking in your closet, nibbling on your favorite woolen sweater or your heirloom silk scarf. They aren't much interested in your pantry goodies.

Now, the pantry moth—or as it's officially known, the Indian meal moth—is a gourmand, but in the wrong place. They show up in your kitchen or wherever you store food. They prefer a diet of grains, cereals, nuts, dried fruits and a variety of other stored food products. They leave your clothes alone and focus on raiding your pantry.

Appearance-wise, there's a difference too. Clothes moths are usually smaller, about half an inch, and come in shades of light golden or brownish hue. On the other hand, pantry moths are slightly larger with a wingspan of about 5/8 of an inch and have a distinctive coloring with a reddish-brown hue on the outer part of their wings.

Now that you're armed with this knowledge, you're better equipped to deal with these intruders. Remember, my friend, whether they are attacking your wardrobe or your pantry, Dr. Killigan's is always here with the right weapons for your fight. Together, we shall reclaim your peace and comfort!

First, remember, the absence of moths in the trap does not always imply an absence of moths in your home. These crafty little creatures are excellent at hide and seek. They may still be lurking in unseen corners or deep within your wardrobe.

Now for the obvious: make sure you have removed the protective sheet from the glue.

Discard particularly infested items. Thoroughly clean the clothes you do keep. Vacuum your closet and wipe it down with a simple cleaning solution.

Double-check the placement of your traps. The best spots for these traps are within or nearby the affected areas, ideally inside your closets or wherever you've noticed damage. For maximum efficiency, have one trap up high on the closet pole and one down low on the ground, for that's where these sneaky invaders love to dwell.

Then again, it's also possible you're dealing with a different species of moth, or the moths are in a different lifecycle stage not attracted to the pheromones (like larvae). A thorough inspection of the area can help clarify the situation.

In any case, persistence is key. Keep monitoring the traps and the area around them. And don't hesitate to reach out to our customer support team at contact@drkilligans.com. We're here to assist you in your quest for a moth-free wardrobe.

In this battle against the clandestine destroyers of threads, always remember Dr. Killigan's stands with you, armed and ready.

While our moth traps are designed to effectively capture those pesky critters, it seems you've gotten a bit too hands-on with the process. But fear not, for Dr. Killigan’s is here with a solution.

First, resist the urge to rub the area, as it might spread the adhesive further. What you'll need is a common household item: vegetable oil.

Here's your action plan. 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.

Remember, patience is key in this operation, much like in our battle against clothing moths. Be gentle with your skin and give it time.

Also, for future reference, handle the traps by the edges to avoid direct contact with the adhesive. And in case of any further inquiries or issues, don't hesitate to reach out to our customer support. We're here to assist in all things pest-related and beyond!

To your comfort, and to victory, my friend!

Dr. Killigan's clothing moth traps, crafted with the most potent pheromone attractants, are designed to last up to twelve weeks once opened and deployed. That's three whole months of dedicated moth warfare!

However, keep in mind that if your trap becomes full before that time, or if you notice a resurgence of these pesky invaders, it may be beneficial to replace the trap sooner. A trap brimming with moths may not be as effective at attracting new ones, and we always want to ensure we're providing the best offense in your battle against moths.

To decide when to replace them, also consider the level of infestation. If you have a substantial moth problem, it may be beneficial to replace the traps more frequently. In contrast, for mild infestations or preventative measures, you can stick to the twelve week guideline.
Unopened, these traps will keep their potency for three years after the manufacturer date.

And remember, the war on moths is a marathon, not a sprint. Stay vigilant, keep an eye on those traps, and together, we'll ensure these critters know they're not welcome. With Dr. Killigan's, you're always equipped for victory!
