  • As the name suggests, our Mini-Wasps against Clothes Moths are parasitic wasps that combat all species of clothes moths, including the common clothes moth and the case-bearing clothes moth. Clothes moths are recognisable by their silvery-beige colouring and their hairy heads. Brown moths with patterned wings are most likely pantry moths. To combat pantry moths, we recommend using our Plantura Mini-wasps against Pantry Moths.

    For a standard-sized wardrobe, you will need 4 of our mini-wasp cards. Please keep in mind that if you have any furs, down pillows and blankets or any other textiles of animal origin (e.g. wool), they will most likely be infested as well. In this case, we recommend buying 6 to 8 cards. Each of your 6 deliveries from us will include the number of cards you chose and will be delivered straight to your door.

    We will send you six deliveries at two week intervals to ensure that the clothes moths’ life cycle is covered. Each delivery includes however many mini-wasp cards you have chosen. Orders received by 10 p.m. on a Sunday will be shipped that Tuesday. Our mini-wasps can survive in transit for more than 5 days without any problems and will be delivered straight to your door in a discreet envelope. There is no need for you to reorder or do anything else: one order contains all six deliveries, which will be shipped automatically every two weeks.

    What exactly are mini-wasps?
    Our mini-wasps are tiny (0.3 to 0.4mm) parasitic wasps, also known as ichneumon or trichogramma wasps, that are practically invisible to the naked eye. They are completely safe for humans and pets. Ichneumon wasps cannot fly properly and cannot sting you. Despite the name, parasitic wasps are not related to normal wasps. These little helpers are the moths’ natural enemy. They combat moth infestations by parasitising the moth eggs, thereby preventing any new moths from hatching.
    Where should I place the mini-wasp cards?
    Place the cards wherever you store clothes or textiles of animal origin, including carpets, down bedding or furs, for instance. To limit the number of cards needed, it is a good idea to store all the textiles together in one place with the wasp cards. One card is enough for an area of about 1m2 or one drawer/cupboard compartment. Our mini-wasps are odourless, safe for humans and pets, and will not cause any damage to your clothing.
    What do I need to keep in mind when combatting clothes moths?
    In order for the mini-wasps to successfully combat a moth infestation, you will need to place the beneficial insects wherever infested textiles might be. Do not bend the wasp cards; simply place them at the application site. Avoid using chemical sprays before and during the use of parasitic wasps, as they can be fatal to beneficial insects. In addition to using mini-wasps, we recommend washing affected textiles at a high temperature (at least 60°C). Place sensitive fabrics made of wool in the freezer for a week to kill the moths. Thoroughly wipe down all wardrobe compartments.

    Frequently asked questions

    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.

    Although cards with 2000 contain wasps at fewer different developmental stages, they are delivered more frequently, covering the moths’ life cycle much better. In our experience, it is much more reliable and effective to receive cards with 2000 wasps in six deliveries than cards with 3000 wasps in fewer deliveries.

    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
    • Furs
    • Felts
    • Down
    • Carpets, rugs & animal skins
    • Old upholstered furniture filled with animal fibres
