MOTH CONTROL / MOTH REMOVAL

HERTFORDSHIRE & BEDFORDSHIRE

MOTH CONTROL HERTFORDSHIRE

Moth Control Hertfordshire – We provide moth control throughout Hertfordshire to rid you of moth infestations. Moths are enticed into our homes by the bright light spilling out of cracks around windows and doors at night. Once in the home, moths will start to look for dark areas where they are able to lay their eggs without being disturbed. They like to find areas where clothes and textiles can be found, such as spare rooms, under beds, in wardrobes and other storage spaces.

Moths are a common pest which are well known for feeding on clothing and natural fibres, particularly enjoying dirty fabrics. If you have found moth infestation in your home, don’t delay and call us today to book an appointment.

PEST PROOFING

WE OFFER A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT PEST PROOFING MEASURES FOR THE HOME AND WORK-PLACE THAT CAN PREVENT OR REDUCE THE CHANCE OF RE-INFESTATION. THE NUMBER OF PROOFING MEASURES AVAILABLE AND THE TYPE DEPENDS ON THE PEST, ASK US ABOUT THE AVAILABLE PROOFING MEASURES WHEN YOU CALL.

MOTH FACTS

  • COMMON SPECIES

    The most common species of moth found in Hertfordshire and the rest of the UK are the Brown House Moth (Hofmannophila pseudospretella), Common Clothes Moth (Tineola bisselliella), Case-Bearing Clothes Moth (Tinea pellionella) & the White-Shouldered House Moth (Endrosis sarcitrella).

  • DIET

    The clothing moth feeds on cotton, linen, silk and wool fabrics as well as furs, but adults don’t eat. Males look for females to mate with and females look for places to lay their eggs.

  • HABITAT

    Clothing Moths prefer areas that are dark, larvae will try and relocate under carpets, rugs and furniture when in a well lit room.

  • Behaviour

    Once reproduction is done, they die and the larvae spend all their time foraging for food. Clothing moths are particularly attracted to carpet and clothing that contains human sweat or other liquids that have been spilt on them. These moths are considered a pest because the larvae can inflict severe damage on fabrics and clothing.

CLOTHING MOTHS (Tineola bisselliella)

Clothing moths (Tineola bisselliella) adults are between 6-8 mm long and have shiny golden wings. The larva can be up to 10 mm long and is white with a brownish head and lives in a silken tube.

Clothing Moths prefer areas that are dark, larvae will try and relocate under carpets, rugs and furniture when in a well lit room. The eggs hatch into larvae and then begin to feed, but adults don’t eat. Males look for females to mate with and females look for places to lay their eggs.

Once reproduction is done, they die and the larvae spend all their time foraging for food. Clothing moths are particularly attracted to carpet and clothing that contains human sweat or other liquids that have been spilt on them. They will feed on cotton, linen, silk and wool fabrics as well as furs.

Moths don’t present any danger to humans and are only considered a pest because of the severe damage caused by larvae on fabrics and clothing.
