MOTHS

  • The majority of moths found in the UK (approx 2,500 species) are harmless, however, a few are seen as pests due to the damage their larvae cause to materials, textiles and stored food products. Unlike some other pests, moths pose no health risks as they do not transmit diseases. Moths hold a vital role within our wildlife ecosystem.

  • Once inside your home, some moths - such as Clothes Moths or Carpet Moths can severely damage natural fibres (such as wool, silk or cotton) in carpets, clothes, fabrics, fur and even leather items. Moth caterpillars cause damage by eating the protein (keratin) found in natural materials. This potentially puts your delicate items at particular risk of damage, especially if they are left stored in draws, wardrobes or under the bed for long periods of time.

  • If you think you may have an infestation contact ALL-GONE PEST CONTROL, so treatment of the moths and their larvae can begin, as left unchecked the problem can swiftly spread to other areas of your property.
