Suffering with Carpet Moths?
If you have issues with carpet moths in the carpets of the home, see our Carpet Moths Kit Guide
- Moth larvae will damage carpets, particularly in undisturbed and darker areas under furniture or along baseboards. Our Carpet Moths Kit Guides
are extremely effecting at killing moths, larvae and eggs.
Clothes moths are typically very small (0.8 to 1.4cm) and often go unnoticed until, frequently with a seasonal weather change or impending event, when one takes clothes from storage, only to uncover damage. The adults rarely fly in lit areas at night, preferring darkness and can squeeze through very small cracks. Adult males are more likely to be found flying and can be targeted using our Clothes Moth Traps
. The female clothing moth tends to run or hop rather than fly and will look to hide in the folds of garments.
It is the larvae that cause the damage, feeding on the fibers of wool, cashmere, silk and leather clothes leaving unsightly holes in clothing and often rendering them un-wearable. Its so frustrating when you find a moth eaten sweater in your closet.
The cost of damage to clothes can be significant so the relatively modest investment in controlling and preventing adult moths and moth larvae, and providing protection for your clothing, is an investment worth making. With a typical adult female clothing moth laying hundreds of eggs in one go, the risk of an infestation emerging quickly is a very real one and the need for anti moth protection is critical, especially for valuable garments.
