Moth Control Treatments in Leeds
The 2 types of moths, textile and stored product moths both types have similar habits, the main difference been that stored product moths are found infesting food such as grains, flour and cereals. Textile moths are more commonly found infesting textiles including clothing and carpets.
Textile or Clothes moths are very common and often found in homes munching on your carpets and clothes. The first step when dealing with clothes moths is to inspect dark undisturbed areas such as under furniture and in piles of clothes that have not been moved for some time. Grab the hoover and or get the clothing washed. I apply insecticide to cracks and crevices and use a ULV applicator to knock down the adult moths.
