Over the last couple of years we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of call-outs to deal with Moths.  One of the most common species of Moth is the Common Clothes Moth – Tineola bisselliella    .

Unfortunately these moths can cause considerable damage to natural fibres in carpets, clothing etc. We are normally called in once damage is discovered similar to the photos below.

The favorite spots are often in dark areas, such as under sideboards which are infrequently moved, or around the edges of carpets.

Thankfully we have many years experience in dealing with these pests and have proven methods of controlling then.


One of our ways of checking for moths can be by the use of pheromone traps. These traps work well at identifying areas where moths are actively flying.

Unfortunately they do not catch the larvae therefore the damage will already have been done by the time they are caught.
