Controlling Moths and Silverfish

Infestations of moths & silverfish can damage your treasured personal belongings and should be prevented in your home or workplace.
The moths larvae cause severe damage to cloths, fabrics, leathers & carpets.  There are many species of moths; clothes moths, grain moths, and Indian meal moths are among the most notable.  You can identify moths by;

  • adult moths are often seen crawling rather than flying
  • their maggot-like larvae (moth caterpillars)
  • their silken tubes or cases in which moth larvae live
  • their silk cocoons (pupae) in which larvae turns into moths

Moth pest controlMoth pest controlThe above pictures show the pest control measures we have taken to control a moth infestation one of our commercial customers were experiencing.  The moth glue boards we installed have a pheromone canister which the moths are attracted to.
Our general pest control services include the treatment for silverfish.  The above top picture is a silverfish; they are a wingless, torpedo-like-shape pest.  Silverfish feed on food and materials high in protein and sugar for example paper on which there is glue in the binding; or starch in clothes.  Some interesting silverfish facts;

  • Silverfish are nocturnal
  • Silverfish run very quickly
  • Silverfish can be found almost anywhere and favour damp conditions
  • Silverfish lay their eggs in cracks and crevices

It’s amazing what damage these harmless appearing insects can cause.

    One of the New Zealand Fireplace Service reports that summarised the investigation of the hearth incident concluded that ‘the sustained elevated
    temperatures within the flue meeting had been sufficiently high for a hearth
    to happen in the polystyrene core of the PIP roof
    panels and that there was a sufficiently excessive power launch fee from the flue for this hearth to be independent until the hearth had grown in dimension for its personal warmth release price to be self
    sufficient’ (Hefford, 2000).
