  • Do Trichogramma Wasps attack Clothes Moth?

    Created by Marco on

    Hello,

    I heard that the Trichogramma Wasps may be useful for getting rid of clothing moths. Are the species of Trichogramma that you sell effective for this purpose?

    Thank you for your time.

    Marco

    Marco –

    Trichogramma Wasps work for pantry moths but not clothes moth. I have attached a link that should help:

    Thank you!

    Hi Marco –

    Because there’s so much conflicting information about trichogramma wasps and clothes moth I wrote the leading producer of trichogramma. Here’s what they had to say:

    Yeah, that’s a tough one. We have no scientific backup to say with certainty that it works. It is therefore our position that we cannot recommend Tricho for control of clothes moths. Any such use would be experimental and without promise of results.

    Good luck!
