What Do I Do If I Have Moths In My Home?

When your home is suffering from a moth issue, you want to know how to handle the problem as quickly as possible. You may have already lost a pantry of food, or your favorite winter coat. So, you need first to get rid of what has drawn these fluttering pests to your closet or pantry. Then you must do what needs to be done to prevent them from returning.

Indoor moths are unlike the moths you find fluttering around light bulbs on your porch. These moths prefer the dark corners of certain living spaces of your home. Two in particular: your closets and your pantries. 

What Attracts Moths?

The moths that live in closets are called Clothing Moths. However, it is not actually the moth that feeds. It is another part of the moth’s life cycle; its larvae. Moths lay their eggs, tucked away clothing in the back of your closet. Once the eggs hatch, the newborn larvae begin to eat. They love to consume different types of fabrics like wool, cotton, silk, and other linens. 

Moths that live in kitchen cupboards are called Pantry Moths. They will only reside in the cupboards where food is accessible. Much like the Clothing Moth, the adult moth will lay her egg within the material where they will feed when hatched. Instead of your fur coat, this time, it will be a bag of flour, boxes of cereal, bags of rice or beans, and any other dried good you may have stored; this includes pet food. 

What Do I Do?

Once you have spotted your first moth, it is a good idea to put out a moth trap. The type of moth trap you purchase will depend on where you find the moth. There are traps designed for both areas of the home, and Dr. Killigan’s offers them as part of their premium line of pest control products for your home. 

Dr. Killigan's Premium Clothing Moth Traps and Premium Pantry Moth Traps are both pheromone traps that attract adult moths and trap them for easy disposal. They are 100% safe, toxin-free, and are simple to use. They also do not require a separate wafer, like many other traps on the market. The pheromone is mixed into the glue on the trap.

Where is the Best Place to Put My Trap?

The best place to install your traps is where you have found the moths are most active. This is where Dr. Killigan’s best has your back.

One of the greatest things about Dr. Killigan’s products is that we go the extra mile for our customers. We take the time to think about what you think about, ‘how will this product look in my home?’ We all desire a world without bugs, but they do happen. We may need to now and then take measures of using devices to dispose of them, and we don’t want visitors to see the devices we are using. So, at Dr. Killigan’s, we not only do our best to uphold our motto of Killing them Softly ™, we aim to do it with style. 

The Final Word

True, a visitor may not see the back of your closet. They may not see your pantry. But you do. And it can be a reminder of a moth issue you have had to deal with.
