Moths stop them Now

Moth caterpillars cause the damage by eating the protein (keratin) found in natural materials like wool, cotton, and silk. This potentially puts your delicate items at particular risk of damage. Small maggot-like larvae will feed on the Keratin within the wool.

To take care of the immediate problem of moths in your closet, trap them with Pheromone moth traps, which attract and kill them with a sticky substance that they can’t escape once they touch or you can arrange for a Pest Control Survey of the building. Upon carrying out the survey we offer the customer a few moth traps as part of the survey fee, or within the treatment. Clothes you don’t wear often, especially wool winter clothing should be stored in an airtight bags, protect wool coats and sweaters with plastic bags. If your going to store clothing in the loft make sure that it’s protected and wrapped airtight so no moths can get in. Always move furniture around the house so that you can hover under it.

Moths within the UK are harmless, however, a few moths are seen as pests due to the damage their larvae cause to materials. Unlike other pests, moths pose you no health risks. Once inside your home or business, moths can severely damage natural fibres in carpets, clothes, fabrics, fur and even leather.  For more information on the different type of moths check out the following website ukmoths


I would definitely recommend this company. Very fast response time and Steve gave us lots of good advice on how to deal with the problem we were experiencing and how to rat-proof the garden. Would certainly go back to MIDS if we need a pest controller in the future.

"Amazing service! I called Mids Pest Control about a suspected wasps nest outside my bedroom. I am terrified of wasps and needed someone to come and check it out quickly. They swung by between jobs and were at my property in 10 mins. I wasn't home but they offered to check the external anyway! My housemates let them in and they disposed of two wasp nests in my loft in absolutely no time and called me to update me immediately. They were very friendly and very effective and a great price. Obviously, I hope I don't have to call them out again but would highly recommend! Outstanding service!"
