Moth Prevention Feature on The One Show on BBC 1

Feb 07, 2012

Last night George McGavin showed viewers of "The One Show" how clothes moths get into our houses and destroy our clothes, and gave some tips to help keep homes and wardrobes moth free.

The feature gave a great explanation of the life cycle of the clothes moth, as well as showing some horrible pictures of the larvae in HD close up.

As with most problems in life, prevention is better than cure and is usually cheaper in the long run, so he recommended several ways to discourage moths from making a home in your cupboards, drawers and wardrobes including using scented sachets that moths don't like. Where moths have become a problem, freezing clothing can be useful. Our alternatives include moth killer sprays and fumigation products when the infestation has become more serious.
