Carpet Moth Treatment | Carpet Moth Killer | Carpet Moth Control

Professional Carpet Moth Treatments for amateur use 
At Pest Expert we specialize in both production and supply of the highest quality carpet moth control products, enabling professional and now amateur users to carry out simple and effective eradication of an infestation of carpet moths.

With over 20 years' experience within the professional pest control industry, until recently our specialist range of clothes moth products, including clothes moth spray, clothes moths traps and clothes moth killing Foggers, were only available to the professional sector, but we have now extended our full product range to the amateur market, making it available through this website and other specialist pest control suppliers.


What are Carpet Moths?
Carpet Moths are part of the Tineola species of moth, and are also known as the Case Bearing Carpet Moth. They are a textile pest that feed on 'keratin', a substance found in natural fibres such as wool, cashmere, silk, fur, feathers and hides. Carpet moths tend to be dark brown to buff in colour and are slow in flight often tending to run or hop about at floor level. Due to this behaviour, customers often report no sightings of any moths, just threadbare carpets! Carpet moths are becoming increasingly common throughout the UK and can be extremely destructive. It is the larvae that cause the damage, frequently munching their way through large patches of carpet!

A female carpet moth can between 30 and 200 eggs at once, and these eggs hatch after just 30 days incubating. The almost microscopic larvae can take between 45 days and two years to reach full maturity depending on circumstances such as temperature and food source. 


How do I know if I have Carpet Moths?
A common indication that one has a carpet moth infestation is evidence of carpet moth damage. This normally shows itself in the form of threadbare carpets where the larvae have eaten away at the tufting. Carpet moths favour dark areas, so finding patches of damage behind or underneath beds, sofas, and heavy furniture is quite common, as is around the edges of the room. Another common sign of infestation is the cases left behind by the larval stage of the carpet moth. These cases are frequently found around areas of carpet damage and are often described as looking like grains of rice.


The image to the left shows a typical example of carpet moth damage. It also shows the small cylindrical white larvae of the Case Bearing Carpet Moth. You may have also discovered cases in your carpet, which resemble grains of rice.


What's the best and most effective form of carpet moth treatment?
Carrying out a successful carpet moth treatment and achieving eradication is actually a very simple and straightforward process providing you have the appropriate carpet moth killer products and detailed instructions for use, all of which we supply.

The fastest and most effective route to successful eradication is to use a combination of products, as this will provide a better knockdown effect and maximum impact. Our Carpet Moth Treatment Kits provide the optimum range of products, and have been tailor-made for the purpose of eradicating a carpet moth infestation. Each Kit contains the best possible combination of carpet moth treatment products, including carpet moth spray, required to kill all life-cycle stages of the carpet moth, from eggs to larvae to adult, which is essential to achieving swift and complete carpet moth contro
l.

Another factor in the success of our Kits is the combination of active ingredients which result in what is known in the pest control industry as 'the crossover effect'. Each of our carpet moth kits achieve this by offering the same type of products that a professional operator would apply. These kits are available in three different sizes designed to treat various degrees of infestation, whether they be in one room or an entire house. In addition, all Kits are supplied with full step-by-step instructions and all component products are easy to apply and have a solid reputation for providing excellent results.


Will Carpet Moths eat my clothes and can they spread to wardrobes?
Yes, they can and they will if allowed to multiply. As carpet moths will feed on any product containing keratin including wool, cashmere, silk etc, and as they are part of the Tineola family (the same species as the Common Clothes Moth) we always recommend that you protect your wardrobes and any other clothing storage areas from potential infestation.

Rentokil Moth Killer Cassettes or Rentokil Moth Killer Strips provide a very cost-effective way of doing this, as they are inexpensive, odourless, and last up to 6 months. Our Demi Diamond Moth Traps with built-in moth pheromone lure are also an excellent tool for both early detection of moth activity and monitoring after treatment. The Demi Diamond is a professional standard moth trap, widely used within commercial textile factories.
