Carpet moths are similar to webbing clothes moths in that they spin webs in areas they reside and the ‘silken trails’ are often seen on carpets. Moths in carpets might also be the result of infestation by Webbing Clothes Moths - Clothes Moths are not adverse to causing damage to wool carpets and silk rugs. The MothPrevention Carpet Moth Killer Kits and individual carpet moth treatment products are effective in dealing with either variety of these closely related moths. Carpet moths can be stubborn residents and are usually evidenced by small ‘balding’ patches in the corners or edges of carpets and rugs. The carpet moth larvae can be difficult to see because they often take on the colour of the natural fibre carpet pile that they have consumed.
Carpet moth eggs are tiny, usually less than a millimetre in length and carpet moth larvae are very small when they first hatch. Carpet Moth Fumers are a key aspect of the conventional treatment approach and we do not advocate the use of aerosol fumers – smoke bombs are far more penetrative and spread better to reach the more hidden areas that carpet moth larvae are likely to inhabit. It is recommended that as part of your carpet moth treatment a strong product such as the Insectaclear D or one of our other persistent moth killer sprays is used, for the deep penetration of the spray application and because the product remains active for up to 20 days. Given how stubborn carpet moth larvae infestations can be, this can be a real advantage. Ideally, carpet moth spray treatments will be in conjunction with a powder solution such as Insectrol Powder to deal with active carpet moth larvae and to treat areas that cannot be sprayed, such as near electrical sockets.
With modern houses and central heating, the clothes moth lifecycle has extended to become a year-round problem and you are far more likely to find moths in your house. This section contains a wide range of moth control products specifically designed to get rid of moths, however big or small the problem is. We have categorised our range of treatments to kill moths and deter moths as follows:
Moth Traps - based on trapping the male moth to break the breeding cycle and using naturally occurring pheromones. Moth traps, while effective to kill moths, are safe and can be conveniently located in or near clothes storage areas or in living rooms. These traps typically last 3 to 6 months and we sell replacement strips for the Aries and Zero-In Demi Diamond traps as a cost-effective way to extend the life of the moth boxes and traps rather than replacing the whole product. We also have value packs of moth traps, clothes moth boxes and replacement strips to enable you to make even further savings - if you have moths in the house then we'd strongly recommend moth traps as a key part of your plan to deter and kill moths.
Moth Proofer Sprays - moth proofer sprays can be used to treat an area for eradicating moth larvae or as a ‘knockdown’ spray to kill moths in flight or resting on walls etc. We offer natural sprays that can be used directly on clothes too, as long as a discreet area is tested first. Our best selling Airies anti moth spray contains natural neem oil and can be applied directly to clothes (exercising care with light coloured delicate fabrics), as can the Orphea clothes protector spray. The Airies moth oil spray works through applying the spray directly onto wooden clothing storage surfaces (drawers and wardrobes) and also deters moths while also caring for the wood itself. The latest addition to the range of moth proofer sprays is the Zero-In Clothes Moth Killer Spray which can be applied to fabrics and kills clothes moth larvae and eggs - a moth control and protection product that has very quickly established itself as a best seller!
Moth Killer Products - more aggressive treatment can be applied to kill moths and eradicate a persistent clothing moth problem. These products are effective, but must be used safely away from children and pets until the treatment routine is completed. Deterrent products are effective in prevention but for an existing identified infestation, moth killer products need to be used in conjunction with thorough cleaning to eliminate the moth larvae and eggs
