We’ve all had clothes with moths in before. It’s not nice and there are things you can do to treat them. This article lists 5 easy tips for preventing and treating clothes moths.

  1. Lavender

Clothes moths really hate lavender. There is the first and best tip! Get on to the lavender craze. It’s a great way of preventing clothes moths. There are different products you can get but start with one at least and see how it goes!

 

  1. Pheromone traps

Animals are animals. Insects are insects. These moths are attracted to pheromones so you can use that to your advantage. Capture them in sticky pheromone traps. Then you just pass by with the vacuum cleaner and pat yourself on the back.

  1. Wood or laminate flooring

Wood and laminate flooring is a lot cleaner. Less area for the moths to hide. Easier to spot dust in general. Then you sweep and mop the floor after. Obviously don’t put tonnes of water on it but enough to get rid of the dust. This will help prevent the moths from hanging around. Also less dust is always better.

  1. Replace your wardrobe with chain mail and suits of armor

Moths can’t eat metal. So many moth fighters are going down the route of metal wardrobes. Listen I didn’t want to put this one in, because I like my classic wardrobes. However a lot of people are doing this so now you know!

  1. Vacuum storage bags

Everyone should know about vacuum storage bags. You fill these bags with clothes you don’t use very often then use a special vacuum to suck all the air out. It shrinks the contents and stops the moths from coming in.

  1. Sprays

Obviously you can spray! Come on guys do I need to tell you this! Actually pointing out the obvious is important. However we don’t want to be spraying our house all day every day. So try the above first before using spray to get rid of the moths.
