What type of Clothes Moths or Beetle are there?
Common clothes moths and beetles that attack fabrics are collectively known as textile pests.
The three main species are the Common Clothes Moth, Case Bearing Clothes Moth and Varied Carpet Beetle.
Why are moths in my house?
Clothes Moths and Carpet beetles lay eggs in natural fibres that contain the protein Keratin. Once hatched, the larve of these insects chew through fibes of carpets or clothes causing damage as they go.

We can get rid of your Clothes Moth.
Effective treatment involves appplying a residual insecticide directly to carpets and underneath sofas and chairs.
We'll give you a list of instructions to help you prepare for the treatment.
In most cases we recommend reapplying the treatment after 14 days to ensure they are all gone.
Clothing will need to washed at +60 degrees or professionally cleaned. It is also possible to freeze clothing to kill off all stages of the life cycle.
