MOTH CONTROL

Moth control

The good news: textile moths pose no health risk. Now the bad news: moths can cause unsightly damage to clothing, carpets, and other materials. Take action immediately if you see any suspicious holes or signs of small larvae or silk cocoons.

  • Determine the source of the infestation: It used to be the laundry collected in the wedding chest – today, clothing that may not have been worn for a long time, handicrafts, fabric decorations or carpets. Look in your closets, the dresser drawers; Filling materials in partition walls or under the old flooring can also be the starting point for the infestation.
  • Start with moth pheromone traps to catch the adult moths and vacuum the infested area regularly to remove any larvae.
  • Wash all clothing items and other textiles in the infected area, such as tablecloths, bed linen and blankets – if possible, using boil laundry to kill the eggs and larvae. Clean the infested cupboards and drawers; look here at the top of the built-in components, where the larvae retreat to pupate. The puparia are to be removed mechanically.
