Moths can lay as many as 200-300 eggs which in turn can hatch in a very short space of time (7-10 days) causing widespread destruction to many household items over a short period of time if you have a moth problem it’s time to work out how to get rid of them. As you may know they are often found in dark undisturbed places, such as under sofas and chairs, in drawers, under furniture, they can also be found beneath carpets and underlay, between floorboards, skirting boards, and in birds and wasp nests – the list is almost endless, and usually by the time your spot them they have already multiplied out of control.
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
What steps can you take to prevent Moths making themselves at home on your property?
Change vacuum bags often – larvae will hide there.
Wash all fabrics
Clean and wash affected furniture
Clean suitcases or big containers that may house eggs and moths

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.
