FAQs: Health & Safety

Your safety is important to us, therefore our Moth Killer Kits and Fumers are all supplied with easy to follow User Guides as well as FREE Protective Mask & Gloves. Our intention is to give you the confidence to carry out your own Killer Kit treatment or fumigation without the need to call in expensive professional pest controllers.

We stock our Fumers and the chemical products found in our Moth Killer Kits because they’re chosen by professional pest controllers, they’re effective, as well as being certified safe for domestic DIY use. Used correctly they are safe to use within your home and will help you to get rid of moths, larvae and eggs.

Before using our products it is important to consider/do the following:

1. Do you provide written safety guidance with your products?

Yes we do! We supply guides for our Moth Killer Kits as well as our Fumers. We recommend that you also read all labels on products before using.

2. Which safety equipment should I use when using MothPrevention products?

A chemical grade mask and protective gloves should be used when fumigating or using any of the spray or powder treatments within our Moth Killer Kits. We supply Mask & Gloves for FREE with any purchase of our Moth Killer Kits or Fumers.

3. Does MothPrevention sell protective equipment suitable for use with their products?

Yes we do! You can purchase our Mask & Gloves here. Also, we supply Mask & Gloves for FREE with any purchase of our Moth Killer Kits or Fumers.

4. What about Safety Data Sheets (SDSs)? Where can I find those if I want to read more details about your products?

We provide Safety Data Sheets within the product pages of our website. Just scroll down to the section titled ‘Data Sheets’ to find all relevant documents.

5. Are your products dangerous to my health?

No. Not as long as you follow the information found on product labels, supplied free guides, and use the provided safety equipment.

6. What should I do if I get spray or powder treatment on my skin?

Wash your skin with warm soapy water as soon as possible. Read the product label and Safety Data Sheet for any product specific requirements.

7. What should I do if I’m worried that I might have ingested or inhaled a spray or powder treatment?

Stop using the product as soon as possible. Read the product label and Safety Data Sheet for product specific detailed guidance.

8. Do I need to be concerned if I have allergies?

Allergies come in many different forms, and levels of severity differ from person to person. As such, we’re unable to help you when it comes to making a decision about “should I or should I not carry out my own treatment?”. At MothPrevention we take risk from allergies seriously, and for this reason we recommend to do the following:

9. I have children and/or elderly people in my home. Do I need to take special precautions for them?

The Fumers, sprays and powders within our Moth Killer Kits are not safe to use while other people are in the room. Only the person using the treatment should be in the room using the appropriate protective equipment supplied with your order. (Additional Mask & Gloves can be purchased if more than one person will be carrying out the treatment).
As long as the provided instruction guides are followed, the room can be used as normal after your treatment has been completed.

Our Moth Traps are completely non-toxic and safe for everybody. However, we recommend keeping them out of reach of children as the glue is very sticky!

10. I have pets! Am I safe to use MothPrevention products?

The Fumers, sprays and powders within our Moth Killer Kits are not safe to use with pets in the same room. Only the person using the treatment should be in the room with the appropriate protective equipment supplied with your order. (Additional Mask & Gloves can be purchased if required). As long as the provided instruction guides are followed, pets can be allowed back in the room after your treatment has been completed.

Our Moth Traps are completely non-toxic and safe for use where you have pets. However, we recommend keeping them out of reach as the glue is very sticky!

11. I have a fish tank! Am I safe to use MothPrevention products?

Firstly, you should not use fumigation! It is almost impossible to protect a fish tank from a smoke based chemical treatment.

Protecting your tank before using a trigger spray, aerosol spray or powder is critical and these are the things to consider:

If you are not 100% confident that you can protect your tank from any of the powders or sprays that you are considering using you should either move the tank out of the room or not use any of our Moth Killer Kit treatments!

Our Moth Prevention Traps are completely non-toxic and safe for use in the same room as your fish tank.

12. Do I need to be concerned about room sizes, fire risk, neighbouring apartments & ventilation?

With any of our products there is a need to read the supplied guides and product labels to confirm that you do not overdose or risk a fire when fumigating. Please refer to our FAQs for Fumers and Moth Killer Kits for product specific details.

With regards to neighbouring apartments & ventilation, we cannot answer this as there are many different scenarios. If you live in an apartment we recommend speaking with your Landlord / Building Manager / Maintenance Person.

13. When is it safe to enter the room after a treatment?

This varies depending on the product used:

Please make sure to follow any steps/instructions in your Moth Killer Kit guide and on any product labels. Timings vary between products and can be found in the supplied User Guides.

14. What should I do with any remaining part-used containers?

We recommend keeping these for future use. If you spot more evidence of moths or any other insect infestation, your leftover products will be useful to have!

You should store any part containers where you keep other hazardous items such as bleach, paints or other insecticides/herbicides: Safe & secure away from children. This location should also be dry, cool and out of direct sunlight.

15. How do I dispose of empty treatment containers responsibly?

We encourage recycling wherever your local authority permits. The process for preparing your waste items for recycling is the same as it is with items such as empty milk cartons through to bleach containers, or any other ‘throw away’ container from the kitchen or bathroom. We recommend as follows:
