What are the Tell-Tale Signs of a Moth Problem In My Home or Business?

Need to know the best way to get rid of Moths in your house? Call the experts.

Moths do not represent a health hazard; however, they cause severe damage to clothes, fabrics, furs, leather and carpets. In all species, the moth’s larva is the most detrimental stage. These pests cause extensive and costly damage to carpets and household furnishings by these pests.

As with all pests, locating the source is the best place to start. Our experts will ensure that insecticides are in contact with the insect at all stages of the life cycle, therefore all areas which they may frequent, feed, fly or lay eggs in need to be treated.

Moth Prevention Tips for Homes & Businesses

What steps can you take to prevent Moths making themselves at home on your property?

Your local Prokill Professional will provide you with advice like this and more in your FREE Prokill Pest Audit, as well as creating a comprehensive control plan that is specific to your problem and environment. Contact us to book yours today!

Different Types of Moths

Common Clothes Moth

(Tineola bisselliella)

The common clothes moth larvae are responsible for making irregular hoes in fabrics. It is the larvae that cause all the damage as the adult does not feed.

Case Bearing Clothes Moth

(Tinea pellionella)

More rare than a common clothes moth, larval casing takes on the colour of the fabric it consumes, so can be difficult to spot.

Brown House Moth

(Hofmannophila pseudospretella)

Brown in colour, with three of four darker spots, the Brown House Moth Larvae feed on animal textiles like wool, leather and feathers.
