Carpet Moth Eradication

Our technician Steve attended an office building recently to eradicate an infestation of Carpet Moths.

The video shows the residual insecticide spray being applied and immediately you can see the activity of the Carpet Moths increase as they become agitated by the flushing agent within the chemical.

A 4 hour period after treatment is required to allow time for the chemical to dry before access to the premises can be allowed.

These pests can rapidly multiply in numbers and can cause huge financial damage to properties if left untreated.

To discuss this treatment or for any other enquiries please contact the office on 0800 085 4460

Carpet Moth Activity

Have you noticed patches of your carpets looking worn and threadbare recently?

A typical indication of a Carpet Moth infestation can be seen in the pictures below, these patches are found in particular around and beneath heavy furniture that hasn't been moved for some time where the pests will attack the fibres of the carpet.

Carpet Moth activity

If not treated the Carpet Moths can destroy the whole carpet, resulting in a costly and devastating outcome.

The Larvae can also cause some considerable damage to the carpets therefore treatment can sometimes take 6-8 weeks to work through the life cycles of the pests.

We can help to eradicate these pests before they create any further damage with a simple chemical treatment to the property.

Bird Proofing at Colchester Town Hall

 

We recently sent our technicians Steve and Stuart to install some bird spikes and netting around Colchester Town Hall, sending them up one of the highest points over the town.

They usually have many birds resting along the edges causing lots of damage and mess to the brick work, now that we have provided them with the protection needed this shall no longer be an issue and the building can remain damage free.

Carpet Moth House Treatment Suffolk

We were called to another severe infestation of carpet moth at a residential property in Suffolk.  The moths had taken residence in large numbers and after an initial spray the carpet was alive with moths.

Initial evidence of carpet moth can be small balding patches of carpet at the edge of the room and this can quickly become a widespread problem as female carpet moth can lay around 200 eggs in just three months with the larvae damaging carpets.

Carpet Moth Treatment Suffolk

A nasty shock awaited this customer on moving their sofa - a carpet destroyed by Carpet Moths.  It is not actually the moths which cause the damage but instead their larvae - which feed on wool and natural fibres.

The Common Clothes and Carpet moth is characteristic by the golden colour of its wings folded down its back. Its larvae is a white caterpillar with golden-brown head and left unchecked can cause extensive damage as can be seen in these photographs.

The spray treatment has killed the infestation - and luckily new carpets were already purchased.

Carpet Moth

Common Clothes Moths attack natural fibres. The adults rarely fly to lights as you would normally associate with moth species. Any flying clothes moth is usually male as females tend to just hop around on the floor in dark and uninterrupted locations in search of breeding sites. The period of egg, larvae, pupa and adult emerging can take about six weeks in favourable conditions.

Brown Tail Moths

Last summer an infestation of Brown Tail Moths was reported at this industrial estate in Ipswich.

In large numbers Brown Tail Moths can cause extensive damage to the foilage of nearby trees and bushes and can cause an irritant reaction due the spiked barbed hair on their body that will penetrate the skin.

The outbreak was tracked back to several bushes growing on the site and a chemical free winter treatment plan put in place to cut the vegetation back to around a foot in height with the removed vegetation sent for incineration.

The area has been monitored since and there have been no reported Brown Tail Moths in this area.
