I recommend that buyers identify their moths very carefully and buy the appropriately-baited traps -- or buy one package of each at first, as I did, to determine which bait their pests are attracted to. Traps DO work, if you chose the right one for your problem. If the traps you buy don't catch any moths within a day or two, it is likely because you just require a different pheromone bait and it does not mean traps will never help you combat moth invasions.
I've also read that you should not use more than 2 traps at a time in your home lest the moths become confused by such a strong aroma of mating pheromones that they become unable to detect the source (so cannot fly into the traps and aren't ensnared).

I keep and use industrial felt which is 50/50 wool/synthetic material. No bug problem in the first 2 years I have started using it. In the last two weeks, I start to see moths flying around the felt. Oh, oh, trouble, trouble. Googledee peck, peckity google.
IDENTIFY MALEFACTORS. It's not so easy catching the little buggers on the fly so I bought both the Propest and the Safer sticky catchers. $40 worth from Amazon.
It appears I have plain Clothes Moths. Light brown wings, less than 1/2" long. No mottling on wings.
Both moth catchers I received, are triangular open cardboard tubes with the sticky lining inside and their own little tiny strip of bug alluring super secret squirrel perfume inside. Did taxpayer money fund the research for this secret stuff? We want to know.
Neither brand captures all flying moths like a magnet as at least one reviewer has stated. In fact, if you snore through the lit, only male moths are snagged. Mommy moths are laying eggs all over the place. Yeaah, Grrrrrh.
You don't have to be a brain surgeon to notice that moths fly like drunken sailors. Amazingly, in the course of a week, two Propest tubes each caught a dozen moths. Two Safer tubes were almost useless. One caught 2 moths and the other caught none. I moved all of them around a little every day. The Propest tubes are twice as big as the Safer ones and I think this is a factor.
I, as a senior citizen, am on board to try to do the Green thing as much as possible.Read more ›
The low morals of female clothes moths (they are polyandrous!) and the fact that the attractant is the female pheromone means the traps will mostly collect adult males. So, a few clever randy males can keep the population going. Although neither product is apt to eliminate all the clothes moths in your closets, they do seem to reduce the overall number. If you have a sufficiently large freezer, placing your woolens in them for a week, combined with the traps, can be quite helpful.
UPDATE: After another three months, using the same protocol and a total of eight traps, Safer appears to be the better choice, both by effectiveness and price. The total number of moths trapped by brand were:
Safer -- 16
Pro-Pest -- 10
UPDATE: per the university of california integrated pest management website [...] there are TWO kinds of cloths moths. all pheromone moth traps on the market ONLY catch one kind of clothes moth--the webbing moth -- not the case-making moth. this will explain the love-or-hate reviews out there. traps failed for me because i have case-making moths. this is probably the case for the others whose traps failed. of course it would be clever if the manufacturers of these traps declared this on the packaging, since they no doubt know it, but that would be too responsible and cut into their profits.
