Effective Moth Control London, Ontario and surrounding areas
Large numbers of moth species exist, each with its size, appearance, and colour. Moths are members of the Lepidoptera insect series, which covers both moths and butterflies.
Moths have a habit to be near food sources. The larvae of most older moths feed on stored foods, fabrics, and even exhibition displays, whereas larvae of most adult moths feed on honey and sap.
Moths usually enter homes through accessible doors or windows, where they enter through contaminated food, infested plant species, infested clothing, and on our clothes and shoes.
To keep moths at bay and prevent infestations, store kitchen items in airtight containers and clean up spilled foods right away. Insects can also be prevented by dry cleaning clothes and steam cleaning furniture. At home, only use outdoor lighting when necessary, as it tends to attract these insects at night.
Damage to clothes is usually the first sign of a moth infestation, but there are usually other signs as well:
- larvae of moths live in silken tubes or cases.
- larvae that look like maggots
- Pupae are the cocoons in which larvae develop into moths.
- moths in their adult stages
