All orders received by Sunday 10 p.m. will be shipped that Tuesday. Orders that are placed after Sunday 10 p.m. will be shipped the following week.Note: Parasitic wasps are live products - any orders that have already been dispatched cannot be refunded.
Before you let the little beneficial insects get to work, we recommend thoroughly cleaning all affected cupboards and chests of drawers. Avoid using harsh chemicals, as these can also harm the beneficial wasps. Also avoid home remedies against moths, such as lavender, cedar wood or patchouli, while using the mini-wasps as they can impair the wasps' ability to do their job. Wipe down the insides of cupboards and drawers with some vinegar cleaning solution or soapy water. When doing this, make sure to get into all the nooks and crannies, like between the cupboard body and the shelves. These nooks make perfect hiding spots for pesky moths. To kill any hidden moths, use a hairdryer to apply heat to any hard-to-reach spots.
Before and during the use of the mini-wasps, we recommend treating textiles with heat or freezing them. If possible, wash smaller textiles such as clothing or pillowcases at a minimum of 60°C. This will kill the moths, their eggs and any moth caterpillars. Put more delicate fibres in the freezer for a week. The cold temperatures also kill moths. To treat larger objects such as pieces of furniture, use a hair dryer and pass slowly over the fabric.
Each card contains 2000 ichneumon wasps, each at various stages of development. By the time you receive your delivery, the first of the parasitic wasps will have just started hatching. Place the cards wherever they need to go as soon as possible after receiving them. One by one, the rest of the ichneumon wasps will hatch and seek out moth eggs to parasitise. After two weeks, you will receive the next delivery to continue combatting the moth infestation. By shipping a new batch of wasps to your door every fortnight, we guarantee the best results and the highest quality of beneficial insects.
This depends on the type and severity of the infestation. You can only officially consider yourself moth-free once the last surviving moths have laid their eggs and these have been parasitised by the mini-wasps. After this, no new moths can hatch. In the case of clothes moths, this takes about 10 to 12 weeks if the wasp cards are used correctly.
No, mini-wasps can only survive as long as there are moth eggs around for them to parasitise. Once these beneficial insects have parasitised all the eggs and thus eliminated the moths, there will be no food left for them to live off of. Due to their minute size, the wasps will literally turn to dust when they die. While the wasps are not interested in your clothing, we recommend washing all textiles at the end of the moth control to get rid of any remaining moth eggs.
Moths like to infest the following textiles:
- Woollen jumpers
- Silk clothing
- Carpets, rugs & animal skins
- Old upholstered furniture filled with animal fibres
- Francine S.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 4 out of 5 starsOctober 10, 2023war on moths
These are great - my moth population is decimated. The moths hatch and eat the eggs - occassionally they dont hatch so Plantura will replace. I like the repeat order every 2 weeks as its important to keep up with them. this means I will order above other brands

We have had these before and they work well. They seem to be having delivery problems at present and our order remains unfulfilled after 1 week.
