Pest Control in London & Essex
Safeguarding Homes and Businesses from Pests
Moth infestations are a common occurrence within domestic and/or commercial properties in the UK and depending on the species the sizes of moths will vary as will their diets and places of harbourage. The the larvae and adult moths will inhabit and feed from materials that exist within their immediate surroundings or a within a property, potentially causing a considerable amount of damage.
Both the moths and the larvae are usually found on surfaces of all types within a premises but can also be found residing in areas where stored foods, warmth and/or humidity are present (such as warehouse/museum packings & fabrics, pantries, boiler cupboards, carpets and upholstery) though occasionally will be found in loft spaces if birds' nests are present. The larvae are extremely destructive eaters (more so then the moth) which ultimately will lead to financial loss, severe damage to fabrics/furs, plants and contamination to foodstuffs.
Besides their destructive nature moths are capable of reproducing well within the 100s which makes them a considerable threat to furnishings, personal belongings and stock making their eradication extremely urgent.
