Take Control with The Moth Decoy, a British Innovation success. Unique and effective, to confuse and reduce clothes moths. The Moth Decoy will not only help address the problem of clothes and carpet moths but also give you peace of mind that you are guarding your clothes and fabrics against damage with the latest advances in the Science of Moth Protection. The Moth Decoy was developed by scientists in the UK and is at the forefront of innovations to control insects without the use of pesticides. 


The Moth Decoy is a small tablet made of carnauba wax micro powder infused with pheromones of the female clothes moth. As the powder is released into the air it attracts nearby male moths.

When a male moth comes into contact with the electrostatic powder, it sticks to the antennae, blocking the receptors and confusing the moth. Instead of searching for female partners, he spreads the powder far and wide, attracting other males, who then also become confused and stop searching for female moths.

As the moths fail to breed the lifecycle is interrupted. Over time, without any moths being killed, the powder helps to create a reduction in moth numbers. Read more about The Science of the Moth Decoy

Your Questions


Below you will find some common questions asked by our customers.

Our Moth Decoys are safe for all pets. We only use ingredients that are non-toxic for dogs, cats and other pets. We do recommend keeping decoys away from pets where you can. We focus on the best smelling and safest ingredients to keep your pets safe and prevent moths.

You should place on a piece of furniture like a headboard or side table no higher than 2 metres. Male clothes moths are not strong flyers so 2 metres is the optimal height.

1 decoy for each room is best. The Moth Decoy will attract the male moth, and confuse the whole lifecycle.

Our Moth Decoys are designed not to draw any unnecessary attention. Using light colours and intricate designs, our Moth Decoy fits into your space and complements it.
