Shining a Light on Moth Infestations
Moths may look like bland cousins of the butterflies, but these flying insects are just as destructive as they are drab in comparison. It’s not uncommon for moths to attempt to retreat indoors when the weather is cold, and a single moth sitting in the corner is far from a reason for concern, the infestation of these flyers can lead to dire consequences, especially is allowed in during the colder seasons.
Each species of moth has a similar appetite, and that is for your wardrobe and fabric surfaces. While we’re all similar with moths eating holes through a treasured sweater, they also enjoy the occasional patch of carpet, the upholstery of an armchair, of even wall hanging. While these bugs can come on their own, their presence is often associated with a bird or other insect infestation, as well.
The Pitfalls of a DIY Remedy
While it is possible to mitigate the growth of a moth infestation with diligent deep cleaning for a few weeks, these insects have been known to lay their eggs in the hidden corners of homes and offices, causing hundreds of hungry caterpillars to be born without you even noticing. Calling in a professional is the safest way to avoid catastrophe before it happens.
