How can Pest ID help

Using deterrents and repellents when already infested with moths or carpet beetles is pointless as it’s imperative that there is a zero count of insects before these will work effectively. Once we have identified the right species, using the correct treatment for your circumstances will eradicate the problem.

Treatments for clothes moths and carpet beetles vary according to what they are feeding on and the infestation rate. Fumigation, smoke generators and spraying using various insecticides are some of the tools in our armoury that we would consider.

As moth eggs are non-porous, knockdown insecticides will not work, so we require the use of residual insecticides to be applied in and around egg sites. This provides a layer of active insecticide able to eradicate any emerging larvae as they cross any treated surface.

If needed, this process is repeated to ensure we are able to attack the next generation, this will ensure that we eradicate larvae capable of turning into adults and then continue the breeding cycle. Treatments taking place during the winter and cooler months are staged slightly further apart as incubation periods are much slower.
