Last edited: Jun 23, Cobra Mr. Floyd Staff member. Jun 23, Clothes moths, Going on the description of the damage, it certainly sounds like like it. But don't forget its only the Larvae that do the damage. They feed off animal protein, that is carpets with a wool content, wool jumpers leather coats etc. Much preferring the dark corners and edges to carpet, behind furniture that rarely if ever gets moved, like a very heavy dresser etc.
OK so you have hoovered up some of the eggs and Larvae, I hope you thoroughly cleaned out the vacuum cleaner, otherwise they will be alive and well feeding off the detritus in there. Shed human skin for example. I wouldn't bother smoke bombing the house, just splat the moths as you see them. It won't kill the larvae And yes there is a fair chance that that they did come in from out-side originally.
The larvae of any insect species, are pretty damned resilient. This is how the species survives. A professional pestie will put down a very strong water based insecticide, there are a few products available to them. In the form of "Barriers" around the edges of all Secret World - Benny* - La Marcha De La Vida (File, Album) carpets, and particularly soaking the infested area.
These products continue to work for a couple of weeks even though they have dried invisibly in the carpet. The Larvae continue to feed Splat - Smoke Moth - Somewhere About Rain 2012 the poisoned food source Magic Marmalade - Again N Again (File) die. Now for the DIY version. Don't worry about pheromones, The killer tabs, are they going to eat them? I doubt it. The "Spray" soak the infested area with it, directly onto the carpet, but test a small area first of course.
Unfortunately publicly available products, have very little residual properties and last a couple of days. Another option, that is effective up to a point is ant powder, All along the edge of carpet, and preferably down the edge of the carpet. They will hide under the carpet when resting, and come back up from under too feed.
Do you have a "Country wide" type farm store near you? They shouldn't sell it to Splat - Smoke Moth - Somewhere About Rain 2012 general public, but they do sometimes, Just go in scruffy and tell them your a farmer if they ask "Ficam W" is a professional grade insecticide that has residual properties. This is the least invasive or harmful to pets and kids.
If you get it, It needs diluting and applied with a spray Keep kids and pets away until it dries. Apart from anything else, they're creepy little barstewards I hate moths. They generally get this. Thanks for the detailed reply Chris. The vacuum cleaner, I just emptied it out into a bag and threw the bag in the dustbin outside. Would I ring the council or look through yellow pages? I dont think theres a countrywide farm shop around here. I will go around again with the spray thing and do the edges of the carpets.
This is the stuff I got off amazon. Thanks again. SickAsAParrot Jun 23, Have a look see if there are any wallpaper edges sticking up slighlty, they will lay their eggs behind those. SickAsAParrot said:. DorsetDude said:.
Alastair Jun 23, Messages 10, Edit My Images No. The cats brought some "little friends" home a couple of years ago, I fumed the house with Fortefog P which did the job in one go.
According to the instrictions it will also be effective agains clothes moths but at a higher treatment level. Just make sure you plan the treatment before you start. DorsetDude Spud Jun 24, Once again thanks all. Chris: Live in a bungalow so the landing idea could be tricky. The blurb with the fumer does say to be sure to put it on a baking tray or something.
I might have a go at the weekend. Plan is to strip the bed, mattress off and lean against wall, lift the divan bit up similarly, Hoover under the bed, then set the fumer off and vacate Answer 6 - Rammstein - Mutter Interview CD a few hours.
Probably open the wardrobe doors as well during. Spray under bed on floor if any left before making the bed up again. Went round the bedroom with the wet spray last night, used up over half of it on just one room.
And of course found another moth or 2 behind various units so the previous stuff I put down not done a lot. I think I m going to have to have a proper spring clean round all the carpeted rooms, moving all the shelves and units out hoovering and spraying or powdering behind the units. At least the 2 cats cant get behind the units once Ive put it all back. Its just wondering what to put down behind is the issue, Im going to run out of spray soon.
The powder should go a bit further but i'll need some more I expect or maybe the ant killer stuff you mentioned. The details of the guy you know would be appreciated. I'll only fumigate Splat - Smoke Moth - Somewhere About Rain 2012 bedroom though.
Works well as I dont let the cats in there anyway generally. So less risk to them. Last edited: Jun 24, Jun 24, LOL OK fair do's on the bungalow. As previously, wet sprays for amateur use do not have any residual value or properties. One thing I have never tried on Larvae, works great on crawling insects, like ants, is Diatomus earth. I think its available for amateur use Its basically microscopic calcified algae, sharp as a razor to insects.
And very dry. Cuts them to pieces and sucks out the body fluids. If you need more spray or powder, go for any insect killer fly's ants etc. But look for the names "Pymethrin" "Pyrethrum" or Bendiocarb preferably at a strength should be printed on the label of 0. But they are not Larvaecides.
If you have a professional around he will expect that most, if not all the furniture to Splat - Smoke Moth - Somewhere About Rain 2012 away from the walls, so he can either get behind it, or at least get his spray bar behind it. I'll drop you a PM a bit later on today with the contact details.
