MOTHS

Moths

Some types of moth, such as the Indian Meal Moth (Plodia interpunctella) do not damage fabrics but may still represent a pest due to their capacity to widely spread to any available foodstuff such as cereals, pasta and grains. The main types of fabric eating moth are the Webbing Clothes Moth (Tineola bisselliella) and Casemaking Moth (Tinea pellionella). These types of moths prefer dark areas and as a result can be quite difficult to detect.

Problems caused by Moths

Whilst moths don’t present a serious health risk, the damage they cause through fabric eating or contamination of food should not be underestimated. It is actually the caterpillar or larvae of these moths that damage fabrics and they are attracted to all kinds of wool and natural fabrics.

How do we treat them?

We’ll begin by conducting a full inspection to identify the extent of the infestation and sites ware larvae have been laid. Following this we will apply a specialist insecticide, which should quickly control the infestation.

Post Treatment Control Tips

NEVER PUT CLOTHES AWAY DIRTY
Fabric eating moths are more likely to be attracted to clothes with sweat and food stains on.

INSPECT ANY SECOND HAND FURNITURE
Before purchasing second hand furniture check for signs of moth damage to prevent bringing them into your home or premises.

THROW AWAY ANY FOOD
That may have been exposed to contamination by food moths and wherever possible store food in sealed containers.

We had an ant infestation in our office and called Chase Pest Control through a recommendation on here. We called them at 6.30pm and at 9am the next day the lovely Peter was here to hopefully banish them for good! I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone! Fast, efficient, reliable and friendly!

Having spoken unsuccessfully to many companies for help, I finally came across Chase Pest Control. What a breath of fresh air. Within the hour, Peter was on our door step. He was not only helpful, professional and friendly but the job was done quite quickly. He came back as many times as we called him without complaining. Afterwards all holes were blocked. What I liked most about Chase Pest Control is the fact that they kept me informed at every step. Thank you Peter, my daughter has now happily settled back into her bedroom. I highly recommend Chase Pest Control.

I was introduced to Peter by a friend. I phoned him and he arrived within the hour. The problem was dealt with efficiently and he came back as many times as was needed till the problem was eliminated. I would highly recommend Chase Pest Control to anybody. Peter is a lovely man and was very thorough and kept me informed about what he was doing which made me feel very reassured that the problem would be resolved. I was very lucky that my friend passed his details to me!!

I had a problem with a wasp nest at the back of my house. Chase Pest Control came out within a few hours and took care of the problem quickly and without fuss. They were friendly and professional. Lovely to use a family business instead of a national chain.

I don’t normally add reviews but I really wanted to thank Peter for helping me out last week. I’d discovered a wasp nest in the loft and needed an urgent solution given I had builders coming in a few days to put some new insulation in. Peter came right over that morning, and even popped back a few days later to check all was safe and ok. I’d definitely recommend Peter and Chase Pest Control. The service was fast, friendly and excellent value for money.

What a brilliant find - Peter came very quickly as I had trouble with rats in the kitchen. He was very polite, friendly and worked hard even had to take all my kitchen units out to find where the rats were getting in and put the units back immaculately. After a few days Peter rang to see how things were going & even came back to make sure all was well. I highly recommend Chase Pest Control and Peter and feel sure anyone else will be just as delighted as I am.

I had a problem with squirrels in my loft, I had previously called out two different pest control companies and neither could resolve the problem, the squirrels just came back. Chase Pest Control were friendly and efficient, they quickly found out where the squirrels were coming in and blocked their access. To date they have not come back. I’d definitely recommend Chase Pest Control.

Peter recently carried out treatment and proofing to our house to get rid of a rat problem that we had. Peter was professional and courteous throughout, taking extra care to ensure that the problem was dealt with thoroughly and carrying out the works in an efficient and conscientious manner. I would highly recommend Chase Pest Control.
Esther – Enfield
Called on this company initially to deal with wasps. Prompt, efficient and reasonably priced service. Due to well done first job I had no hesitation of contacting the company again to deal with a mouse infestation. Peter carried out the work efficiently. He dealt with the cause of the problem by putting mesh on air vents and was very thorough and helpful in returning on four occasions to dispose of mice. Reasonably priced, friendly and professional service. Highly recommended.
