Clothing and carpet moths can be a nightmare for your home, they destroy clothes, carpets, rugs and curtains to name a few.
Thankfully there are many ways to treat this pest problem with moths, but prevention is also important when it comes to avoiding moth issues.
Before you treat the infestation, all areas in and around the infestation should be cleaned and vacuumed thoroughly . You will need to ensure that all furniture is moved during the treatment to improve treatment. All areas around the infestation will need to be thoroughly cleaned.
If you are aware of a serious infestation or you suspect you have an infestation in your home, the contents of your vacuum cleaner should be disposed of as soon as possible, in an outside bin.
If you seek the assistance of a pest control professional to get rid of your moth infestation, they will likely to use a residual insecticide that will be sprayed onto carpets, fabric covered furniture, inside wardrobes and any other infested areas.
Insecticides are biodegradable, almost odourless, non-tainting and do not corrode or stain. The chemicals are not toxic towards mammals but are very toxic to all types of moths.
It is very important not to wash or vacuum treated areas for around a month, depending on what your professional advises. Complete eradication doesn’t always occur as small numbers may breed under carpets where they will not come into contact with the insecticide, which as a result, can mean that new moths could hatch.
