Our Effective Moth Treatment Approach

What Does The Bugman Team Do?

Our trained technicians methodically treat the interiors of your premises, actively seeking and treating all infestations made by moths. The infestation spots differ based on the species of the moth. Commonly, meal moths are found in stored products in your kitchen or pantry, whereas clothing moths tend to inhabit clothes. Upon locating these problem zones, our standard procedure involves fogging or spraying the area with eco-friendly, human and pet-safe products.

Understanding Moth Damage

Moths, albeit tiny, can inflict substantial damage. Adult moths do not consume clothing or fabrics, however, their offspring – the larvae or caterpillars, can significantly harm wool, silk, and other natural fibres. They can also spoil stored food items, carpets, and upholstered furniture.

Inside The Moth Lifecycle

EggsA female moth lays up to 50 eggs in 2 weeks near a plant source. The eggs hatch into larvae in 30 days, taking 7-10 days to grow with proper conditions.
Larvae (Caterpillar)The newly hatched caterpillar feeds on its shell for proteins and later feeds on nearby plants. It grows bigger with each instar, sheds its skin, and eats the cuticle after molting. This process continues until it enters the pupa stage.
PupaeThe caterpillar spins a silk cocoon around its shell where it transforms into a pupa. During this stage, tissues break down and the moth does not feed or move. After two weeks, the caterpillar emerges as a fully developed moth with wings.
AdultsA fully grown moth emerges from its cocoon with a swollen abdomen and shriveled wings. It takes time for the fragile wings to harden before the moth can fly out to feed and mate. The lifespan of a moth varies based on the species, with some living for weeks and others up to 10 weeks.

Do Moths Bite Humans?

Contrary to certain misconceptions, moths are incapable of biting. They lack the mouthparts and anatomy required for biting. Their diet primarily consists of nectar or other sugar sources, and they do not feed on blood or skin.

Recognizing Signs of a Moth Infestation

Identifying a moth infestation early on can help prevent extensive damage. Here are some telltale signs that you may have a moth problem on your hands:

  • Visible moths flying around inside or near the property.
  • Small holes or damage to clothing, carpets, upholstery, or food items.
  • Cocoons or pupal cases on walls or in corners.
  • Frass or droppings left by moths.
  • Webbing or silken threads in the affected areas.

It’s important to address a moth infestation as soon as possible to prevent further damage and the spread of the problem.
