More About Carpet Moth Treatment
Carpet moths are similar to webbing clothes moths in that they spin webs in areas they reside and the ‘silken trails’ are often seen on carpets. Moths in carpets might also be the result of infestation by Webbing Clothes Moths - Clothes Moths are not adverse to causing damage to wool carpets and silk rugs. The MothPrevention Carpet Moth Killer Kit and individual carpet moth treatment products are effective in dealing with either variety of these closely-related moths. Carpet moths can be stubborn residents and are usually evidenced by small ‘balding’ patches in the corners or edges of carpets and rugs. The carpet moth larvae can be difficult to see because they often take on the colour of the natural fibre carpet pile that they have consumed.
Carpet moth eggs are tiny, usually less than a millimetre in length and carpet moth larvae are very small when they first hatch. Fumers are a key aspect of the conventional treatment approach and we do not advocate the use of aerosol fumers – smoke fumers are far more penetrative and spread better to reach the more hidden areas that carpet moth larvae are likely to inhabit. It is recommended that as part of your carpet moth treatment a strong product such as the Protector C Trigger Spray or Fortefog Natural Protector Aerosol is also used, both for the deep penetration of the spray application and because the product remains active for up to 20 days. Given how stubborn carpet moth larvae infestations can be, this can be a real advantage. Ideally, carpet moth spray treatments will be in conjunction with a powder solution to deal with active carpet moth larvae and to treat areas that cannot be sprayed, such as near electrical sockets.
Our carpet moth treatment and spray solutions should preferably be applied to both the undersides and pile of rugs and deep into the pile of carpets using a trigger spray or aerosol for full and effective treatment.
Use of moth traps is also strongly advised to break the breeding cycle of adult moths by catching the adult male carpet moths, and in doing so help break the breeding cycle and prevent the laying of further carpet moth eggs, as well as working as an effective monitoring routine. We would recommend either the Zero-In Demi-Diamond Traps (easiest to use and also with replaceable strips) or the Mottlock Both Boxes (best catch rates and replaceable strips). Do not be concerned that they state ‘Clothes Moths’ on the product – they work just as well for the closely-related Carpet Moth.
