Moths

Moth

Holes in your clothes?
Damage to carpets?


It may be that you have an infestation of carpet or clothes moths.

 

We offer professional treatments for both carpet moths and clothes moths.

Moth presence within the home can be frustrating. They can cause damage to clothes and fabrics such as carpets, curtains and upholstery, which can become very costly.
It’s often an unknown fact that it’s actually the moth larvae that do the damage to your clothing and carpets, not actually the moths themselves. So if you’re seeing moths around the house frequently, the chances are there may well be be a moth infestation established already.

The carpet moths will lay there eggs in carpet fibers that are in dark or poorly lit areas of a room. So under furniture or along skirting boards away from natural light.
Clothes moths lay there eggs on clothes or within cupboards and drawers, common places to find damage by the larvae are along the arms and under the armpits.

 

 

Treatment

We have two main approaches to moth treatments. We carry out light residual insecticidal treatments to carpets, curtains and other natural material furnishings. We also place pheromone traps within treatment areas, this helps to break down the moths mating cycle, which reduces the moth population.
We can also use organic based insecticides in more sensitive areas.

To help in controlling moth populations yourself, it is important to carry out regular cleaning regimes by hoovering drawers, cupboards and carpets will help to reduce moth infestations by removing the eggs, which helps to break the moth cycles down. If we carry out a moth treatment in your home we also carry out a simple treatment to the hoover as well, this further reduces the risk of spreading the moth eggs from room to room.

Always check loft area for evidence of any old carpets or rugs that have been stored away, as this is often a prime suspect as a source for moth larvae to target. If you happen to find any that hasn’t been sealed for storage, then we would advice throwing it away.

It is rarely possible to totally proof a building to prevent the moths from gaining entry. Sealing window frames, sky lights etc. will help along with any other potential entry exit points.
