In recent years, moths and carpet beetles have become an issue in the UK as more and more people complain of damaged carpets, upholstery, and clothing. Such a problem led to the development and implementation of advanced moth control measures, especially in the London territory, where we see a massive spike in infested properties – residential and commercial alike. To tackle the problem effectively, 24/7 Pest Control relies on leading products for moth fumigation and the help of experienced local professionals. For severe infestations, opt for heat treatment – your local exterminator will advise you on the best solution.

How the Moth Control Service Works

Infestations of moths are nearly impossible to control on your own. The 24/7 pest control service can assist you in removing any moth signs in your home.

  • The extent of the infestation will be determined through a close inspection of your property. We will then recommend the most appropriate procedure for dealing with moths.
  • The insecticide will eliminate carpet and clothes moths swiftly from the affected areas. If required, the technician might use fogging or heat treatment for the areas affected by the problem.
  • Pest control technicians can return after the initial treatment to inspect the property and proceed with a second treatment if moth activity continues.
  • As well as providing some practical tips for preventing further infestations, the exterminator will also provide a copy of the written report about the treatment.

What to Do in case of Moths Infestation

If you’ve noticed signs of moth infestation at your property, it is best to hire a moth exterminator, as he’ll know the proper measures to take. Still, it is a good idea to understand how to minimise the damage to your wardrobe and prevent the spreading and possible infestations.

  • Find the infested area. It can be any place where you store textiles and leather – your wardrobe, chests, drawers, and cupboards are good places to check first. It should be easy to find, as the items in the area will be damaged to a greater extent.
  • Wash all your textile items, including damaged ones, curtains, rugs, carpets, soft furnishing, pillows, and more. Keep the damaged items away from your unaffected clothes. It is a good idea to put your clothes in plastic bags before moving them outside the room to prevent the moths to other parts of your property.
  • Vacuum the affected area and throw out the vacuum bag immediately afterwards, as both larvae and adult moths can easily find (and, in case you are using textile bags – eat) their way out.
  • Still, DIY moth removal can only reduce the population of the moths and does not solve the problem – it only minimises the damage. In no way can it replace a proper professional moth treatment. If you want to avoid dealing with damaged clothes and carpets, call our moth control team in London!

FAQ

What causes an infestation of moths?

Moth infestations are most commonly caused by clothes moths. The simplest way to avoid getting a moth infestation is to be careful with what you bring into your home. Clothing that has larvae or eggs hiding in it can introduce a moth problem when you least expect it.

Are moths hard to get rid of?

Despite your best efforts, getting rid of moths is more complex than you think. You will unlikely be able to remove them from their new environment once they have settled in and made themselves at home. The best thing you can do to stop a moth infestation is to contact professional pest control services.

What is the best repellent for moths?

Moths avoid the smell of rosemary, mint, cedar, cloves, thyme and lavender. Remember that repellents cannot resolve an ongoing infestation but can work as a prevention method.

Should I worry about moths in my house?

Unlike some pests, clothes moths do not affect your health. However, they can cause severe damage to carpets, furniture, and clothing made of wool and silk.
