What You Need to Know About Moths

Moth Damage. Although seeing Common Clothes Moth is the visual problem to the damage that is happening to your carpet, it is actually the larvae that is doing all the damage.

Where are the Larvae. The larvae live in tiny little silk houses they are the size of a grain of rice and and normally hidden away in places like under furniture, in the gather of curtains and in wardrobes.

When moths cause damage it is not always obvious until the first signs attract your attention and then on further investigation you find the extent of the damage. A good example of this is in the case of a wool carpet when all the damaged areas will be found under furniture in the shadows.

If you discover you have a clothes moth problem then it is recommended that you carry out an inspection of all the rooms that have natural fibers. The first steps to a treatment would be to move all your furniture to one side and give the room a good hoovering. This might resolve your problem and regular inspection will tell you if this has worked. If this is unsuccessful then the chances are that you will need some kind of chemical treatment.

Prevention of this pest is difficult, as trying to keep moths out of your home or business can only be done by fitting permanent fly screens and an observant eye. Moths will lay eggs in lofts, cupboards, wardrobes and any low traffic dark area with carpet or fibers as a food source.
