Moths Pest Control Kent
Quick guide to our moth treatment service
Moths aren’t a health hazard but they can damage fabrics, carpets, and leather goods in the home. Minor problems can be treated using DIY products but more serious problems needs the experts.
Identifying a problem
While textile months do not pose a health risk, they are a pest in homes because of the damage they cause to fabrics, carpets and leather goods. While a minor problem with moths can be treated using DIY products, an established moth problem will need professional treatment.
The first signs of a moth problem will be damage to fabrics but there will usually be other indicators such as crawling moths, maggot like larvae seen in the carpet, silken tubes or cases in which moth larvae live or pupae (silk cocoons within which larvae turn into moths).
It’s worth noting though that damage to fabrics may not necessarily be caused by moths but can be from carpet or fur beetles – therefore it will be necessary to establish which type of infestation has occurred.
Different types of textile moth
There are four common types of moth infestation in the home:
- Common Clothes Moth
- Case Bearing Clothes Moth
- Brown House Moth
- White Shouldered House Moth
Moths will enter through an open window or door. At night, it’s advisable to draw the curtains or use a fly screen when windows are open at night, where moths will be attracted to light. Once inside, a moth will lay eggs in a dark and rarely disturbed area where clothes or other textiles are stored. Most common areas to find problems would be in a spare room, under beds and undisturbed wardrobes. Lofts are high risk because moths are attracted to bird nests that may be in the eaves of the house.

Testimonials From Our Customers
Every year we seem to get plagued with common clothes moth in the attic room upstairs. They have done substantial damage to antique furniture and clothing. We tried all we could to eradicate the problem but in the end we needed a professional solution. Having spent a tiny fortune on treating ourselves, Arrowguard were more affordable than we expected. It took Arrowguard just one treatment to destroy these troublesome pests and they informed us best on how to clean, protect and store the expensive clothing we had in order to avoid further outbreaks.
