Moth problem.

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had a problem with moths. I took some clothes out of my wardrobe yesterday and they are full of holes. I wouldn’t mind but some of the items cost hundreds to over a thousand. Can anybody recommend anything to deter the little critters. I’m not very happy about it but hopefully the dry cleaners can repair them.

Well you see she is a professional ballroom dancer and the attire needed to compete is very costly indeed.

I think the species causing the issue is a yellow moth.

Steam is one thing you can use to kill moths without destroying garments, carpets etc and not causing a hideous chemical smell on something she might want to wear again. We had an infestation in a Persian rug and the little buggers are relentless.

If serious about moth issue:

Look at the rentokil site.

Once you see the moths its usually too late as its the larvae that do the damage. 

I had a bad infestation a few years ago, little bastids ate into a couple of cashmere coats of mine. 

You will need to vacuum clean the wardrobe really well and the whole room as well.

I bought some of this , no sign of moths since using it.

That’s excellent thanks for clearing this matter up for me.
