Clothes Moth Control
There are two main types of Clothes Moth – Common Clothes Moth and Case-bearing Clothes Moth. Clothes moths are not a health risk but their larvae can cause costly damage to clothes, fabrics, and any organic materials.
HOW TO IDENTIFY A CLOTHES MOTH PROBLEM
Warm dark wardrobes, drawers and insulated lofts make the ideal environment for an array of pests with a penchant for textiles. The offspring (larvae) of clothes moths, carpet beetles and fur beetles love to chew through carefully stored clothing, rugs. They also love birds’ nests in loft spaces where the larvae will feed on bird feathers – from here they will quietly spread unnoticed to other areas of the house.
By the time you have noticed the moths and their larvae will have already caused a great deal of damage. Natural fibre clothing, such as your favourite cashmere jumper, is a favourite foodstuff for the clothes moth.
HOW TO GET RID OF CLOTHES MOTHS
With clothes moths, prevention is definitely better than cure as, by the time you realize you have a problem, they will most probably have ruined some of your favorite woolens.
The first step is to make sure you only put away freshly washed clothes when storing winter woolies for the summer – months like dirty clothes.
Secondly, it is good advice to use clothing storage bags. Clothing is placed into the bag and then the air is sucked out using a standard vacuum cleaner hose. These give a good level of protection against moth infestations.
Finally, to help lessen the chances of a moth infestation, regularly use a vacuum cleaner on areas such as the underside of a rug or sofa. Moths thrive in dark quiet areas and this will help remove eggs and reduce the risk of larvae growing.
Amateur products on the market can help reduce the risk and we offer to arrange stick pads that can be bought directly from our pest control experts who can apply more effective treatments to pest moths. Some infestations may require specialized treatments, so the sooner you call for help the better. MIDS Pest Control can apply insecticidal and stream treatments to drawers, wardrobes, roof spaces, and other affected areas if all preventive measures have failed. Get rid with MIDS today
