What are Clothes Moth Control?

The majority of moths found in the UK (approx 2,500 species) are harmless, however, a few are seen as pests due to the damage their larvae cause to materials, textiles, and stored food products. Unlike some other pests, cloth moths pose no health risks as they do not transmit diseases. Cloth moths hold a vital role within our wildlife ecosystem.

About Moths:

The two most common types of moths are:

  1. Clothes and carpet moths– the larvae of Clothes Moth Control eat through and cause damage to fabrics such as wool, cotton, and carpets.
  2. Food moths – food or ‘pantry’ moths eat stored food products in kitchens and larder storage areas.


You will know that you have a cloth moth infestation by noticing the damage that they have caused to fabrics or you will see them.

Treatment Types for Moths:

  1. Heat Treatment
  2. Steam Treatment
  3. Freeze Treatment
  4. Chemical Treatment



The Clothes Moth Control is a significant pest, the larvae feeding on a wide variety of materials of animal origin such as woolens, furs, etc. Damage from larval feeding can be severe and the larvae are often difficult to detect since they shun the light.

Outdoors, adults are on the wing from May to September. Indoors, adults are found all year round.

How To Control Moths?

Our treatment for cloth Clothes Moth Control consists of tracing the source of the infestation, removing and destroying any infested foodstuffs, and then applying a residual insecticide to infested areas.

  • We always take care to select a non-staining insecticide if soft furnishings are to be treated. Additionally, an ultra-low volume application of insecticide can prove effective. We often use monitoring traps to aid in determining the level of infestation.
  • Whilst there is no difficulty in controlling these moths, it is essential that a thorough treatment is carried out and that every possible larval development site is treated.


They may be found in association with birds’ and mammals’ nests, therefore these possibilities should also be checked when tracing the source of the infestation.
