Moths are pesky creatures that most jumper-owners have to tackle.

But the Natural History Museum has also been struggling in trying to protect their exhibits from being attacked by moths.

And the solution they have found is rather unusual: deceiving males moths into being attracted to other males.

In what is called the 'Pheromone Destruction System', the museum sets bait containing female pheromones for male moths. Once they are covered in the chemical, the result is that other males will try to mate with them.
