Clothes Moths

Latin Name:

Tineola bisselliella

Typical Infestation Locations:

Clothes moths infest textiles and fabrics, primarily targeting natural fibres. They commonly infest closets, storage areas, and upholstered furniture. Their larvae cause damage by feeding on these materials. Prevention measures such as regular cleaning, proper storage, and use of moth repellents are essential for control.

Methods of Control (DIY):

Regularly cleaning and vacuuming closets and storage areas, washing or dry cleaning infested clothing and fabrics, freezing infested items for a few days to kill larvae, using moth repellent herbs like lavender, cedar, or rosemary, placing moth traps with pheromone attractants, sealing clothing in airtight containers, and ensuring proper ventilation and humidity control in storage areas.

Methods of Control (Professional):

Professional wet spray chemical treatments, fumigation, biological control, mechanical control, cultural control, integrated pest management (IPM), exclusion measures, habitat modification, and traps and baits.
