A new weapon in the war against moths

Regular readers will know that I’m a bit obsessed with moths (so would you be if you’d lost your favourite pair of navy blue wool trousers to their voracious appetites).

The latest weapon in the war is the Moth Box. It’s a sticky strip impregnated with female moth pheromones which you put just outside the wardrobe. The theory is that it attracts the male moths and so stops the breeding cycle. £7 from Total Wardrobe Care; it lasts for 12 weeks.
