From the Chronicle: “There are several things you can do to eradicate and prevent clothes moths. First, keep clothes and other fabrics stored in sealed, plastic bags. Next, hang a clothes moth pheromone trap in each closet. It will attract and catch the male moths and stop the breeding process. Don't hang more than one trap, or you will confuse the moths and they will just fly around, not sure where to go. Then wash all infested clothing in hot, soapy water to kill the larvae and eggs.”
