BugMD has been an oft-sponsored product in my Instagram feed, so what’s a woman to do wide awake at 2am scrolling her feed to see if Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are married yet?
Click the Shop Now link and buy three boxes. Yep, I did that.
And wow, who knew how incredibly well they work!?
The premise of the product is its pheromone based. The moths fly to the trap and end up stuck to the gummy inside and not eating your woolens.
I have three BugMDs hung on rods in the master bedroom closet and all three have attracted several moths in less than one week.
I guess what it means is my closet is infested? I’m more than creeped out by how many moths have been collected in such a short time. I have scads of cedar bars and cedar hangers and cedar blocks for drawers. I’m figuring out that cedar is no real deterrent to moths.
Oddly, what doesn’t seem affected by the moths, sitting on a top shelf in my closet, totally UNprotected, is my 1962 (!!!) cardigan bought in Zurich Switzerland while on a family summer vacation. 1962 and it’s still wearable, a bit fragile and dingy, but standing the test of time. 1962 and it’s still in fashion. Classic never goes out of style.
I really don’t know what to do with the sweater. I surely can’t throw it away. I don’t want to donate it. I can’t give it to one granddaughter without giving the other girls something equally vintage and who knows, if I did offer it to one granddaughter, she might even look at the sweater and ask why I think she’d want to wear it! 🤷🏻♀️
I know there are websites that sell vintage clothing for a tidy sum but I think I’d have to clean it first and I fear cleaning it will destroy it. The patina of its age is rather nice to behold.
What if I have the sweater framed in a shadow box? I think that might be the perfect choice.
Meanwhile, I’m obsessed looking at the BugMD things, checking them at least twice a day and amazed, but not in a good way, that so many moths are in my closet.
Moral of the story: pheromone works for closet moths.
