Anyone successfully gotten rid of clothes moths?
I have been battling clothes moths for a while. I found some in an oriental rug and got rid of them by vacuuming both sides and spraying with bug killer. Have not seen another on that rug in over a year and I check regularly.
Now I am giving my master closet a super duper cleaning in an effort to get rid of them once and for all. I have had to toss a lot of clothing because of damage. One suit in particular ($500 Dana Buchman) was a heartbreak to lose. I've washed and dry cleaned everything. I put some undamaged woolens out in the sun. I've also used the method of freezing them in the freezer, the putting them in the dryer on high for 10 minutes, then freezing again!
Nothing goes back in that closet that has not been thoroughly cleaned. I store other items in there as well as clothes.
I just ordered pheromone traps and some lavender sachet-repellants.
Today I smashed three of them, although in the hall, not the closet. Arghh! I figure they were escapees from the clothes I removed.
Cleaning out that closet (it was jam packed) has been my summer project.
So, has anyone fought moths and eliminated them? Any tips?
