Moths Removal & Treatment

Moths Pest Control Melbourne

Moths belong to the same family as butterflies. There are over 90,000 species of butterflies and moths on planet Earth. However, only 30 of them are known to be pests to humans. Though they do humans no direct harm, but they pose a small threat towards our possessions such as clothing, bedding and especially food items.

Why Exactly are Moths Bad if not Harmful?

  • Females lay clusters of eggs in open food containers (they can lay anywhere between 150-400 eggs, which consequently hatch into larvae at the same spot)
  • It is a serious issue for warehouses and places such as flour mills (Mediterranean Flour Moth) when their webs clog up machinery
  • Cloth Moths, make tiny noticeable holes in your clothes, blankets and carpets, resulting in having to replace your entire wardrobe at some point
  • Moths are usually brought into the house by humans. Their eggs are usually deposited into food packets or on clothes and eventually hatch into flying moths hover around light sources at home
  • Moths on food items contaminate food items by droppings and shedding skin

Measures to Control Outbreak:

  • Use readily available aerosol pesticides for a temporary solution
  • Heating food in boiling water can kill the larvae present in it
  • Storing items like flour in a deep freezer for several days can kill the eggs
  • Sealed products are safer than products that are packed in stores from bulk goods
  • Hundreds of eggs can be deposited even of crumbs of food
  • Larvae can chew their way through thin plastic bags, it is advisable to have strong micron strength plastic to store food

Professional Methodology:

  • Identify the key areas where moths are suspected to have laid eggs. Our professional exterminators at Tradie Team will analyse the species of moth present and the destinations of laying its eggs to suggest suitable pesticides. All chemical pesticides are non-hazardous to children and pets
  • After identification, the chosen pesticide will be applied strategically to affected areas. This is in case of minor infestations, in extreme cases, a quarantined house can be gassed to ensure absolute freedom from moths
  • Following up on pest control is the most important step to ensure that the infestation is under control and on the way to being completely stopped
