Using natural moth repellent to protect your home and belongings from moth damage.

  • 3. www.earthkind.com 1.800.583.2921 About Tineola Bisselliella  A.K.A. Webbing Clothes Moth, Common Clothes Moth, or Clothing Moth  Moth larvae, or caterpillars, are what damages clothes and fabrics, not adult moths.  Adult moths only have one goal – to reproduce.
  • 4. www.earthkind.com 1.800.583.2921 Life Cycle of Moths  Females lay eggs in clusters of between 30 and 200.  Eggs hatch between four and ten days later and the larvae begin feeding immediately.  Adult moths can live between 15-30 days. Males die shortly after breeding and females die after laying eggs.  Depending on conditions, a complete life cycle can last anywhere from 30 days to several years.
  • 5. www.earthkind.com 1.800.583.2921 Moths are attracted to:  natural fibers such as wool, cotton, silk and fur  soiled fibers, especially moist fibers as caterpillars do not drink water
  • 6. www.earthkind.com 1.800.583.2921 Moths are frequently found in dim, dark, undisturbed areas such as: – closets – stored items – underneath furniture, rugs, or carpets
  • 7. www.earthkind.com 1.800.583.2921 How to get rid of moths:  Launder or dry clean clothing before storing it.  Regularly clean moth-prone areas. – Expose items to direct sunlight if possible. – Vacuum area and empty or replace vacuum bag promptly.
  • 8. www.earthkind.com 1.800.583.2921 How to prevent moths - naturally:  Make the area less attractive to moths.  Use a natural moth repellent. – earthkind’s® Stay Away® Moths contains essential oils & plant fiber. – Stay Away® Moths is 98% biodegradable.
  • 9. www.earthkind.com 1.800.583.2921 About Stay Away® Moths:  Where to Use: Anywhere clothes or linens are stored: drawers, storage chests, linen closets, wardrobes, or other places you would like to prevent them from entering.  How it Works: Adult moths use their smell to locate the ideal environment to lay their eggs - quiet, undisturbed areas with the necessary protein needed for the larva to grow. Stay Away® Moths pouches placed in these areas emit a scent pleasant to people, but offensive to moths.  Why it Works: Cedar chests have long been used to store linens and clothing since the scent helps keep moths away, but the effect has had a short shelf life. We've found a unique blend of essential oils that incorporates this traditional wisdom into an easy-to-use patented pouch so you can make moths 'stay away' from your personal property no matter where it is stored, no expensive, heavy, wooden chest necessary!  How to Use: Use one pouch per storage container or small closet; two pouches per small room. Increase the number of pouches as needed until desired results are obtained and replace when the scent has diminished (usually 30-60 days).  Farm Grown, Effective Ingredients  Safe Around Kids and Pets  Ready to Use
