How does the Moth Decoy disrupt the mating cycle?
The Moth Decoy is a small tablet made of a food-grade powder. The powder is infused with the pheromone that the female clothes moth emits to call a male to mate. The pheromone infused powder is compressed into a tablet but powder particles on the outer edges still come off a bit like a piece of chalk.
As the male moth flutters around the Moth Decoy, pheromone powder stick to it, which prevents it from finding and mating with female moths. It also causes it to be attractive to other males.
Over time, more males become part of the confusion effect drastically reducing mating. Over subsequent generations, the numbers consistently go down.
