Moth eradication for Maidenhead, Ascot and Windsor
We have moths in our house what damage can moths do?
The adult clothes moth are not the actual pest thats eating your clothing, thats the moth larvae which are solely responsible for damaging your valuable clothing and possessions.
Both adult clothes moths and their larvae prefer dark conditions found in places such as cupboards, storage boxes and the gaps around the edge of a room between the skirting board and the carpet.
Clothes moths prefer moist conditions the drier the environment; the slower the larvae development of the moth.
Moth eggs are tiny, most being less than 1 millimetre long and a single female clothes moth will lay several hundred eggs in her lifetime.
All clothes moths are poor fliers and prefer to scuttle over surfaces where they breed and lay their eggs, you will often find clothes moths in the dark areas beneath sofas and beds
Moth larvae will often be found in old birds nests, which is why whenever we find a nest, we remove it to remove a potential source of food for future moth larvae.
Our treatment for clothes moths infestation is to begin by first vacuuming thoroughly all of the areas to be treated and then by spraying a long lasting residue insecticide
Due to the hidden nature of the clothes moths egg's a second spraying maybe required in four weeks
Pheromone traps are left with the customer throughout the treatment to catch any adult clothes moths that maybe missed by spraying
