Having a pest infestation of any kind is always going to be a nuisance, but it’s always best to get it sorted out sooner rather than later or you could find serious damage is done to your property. It could even prove to be a risk to your health and that of your family, depending on the pest in question.
Where moths are concerned, the good news is that they’re generally viewed as being on the lower end of the scale in terms of seriousness of infestation.
They don’t pose a health risk and don’t spread any diseases, so you don’t need to worry on that front… but if left unchecked, some species can do serious damage to food, carpets, clothing and so on, so it’s always best to get infestations under control as soon as you can.
From a business perspective, moth infestations can damage your reputation, particularly in the days of social media and online reviews. You don’t want potential customers to be put off because you’ve got lots of moths flapping about, after all!
Whether you have an infestation at home or at work, it’s generally advisable to get in touch with a professional and experienced pest control company to discuss moth fumigation, so you can be assured that the problem has been fully resolved.
But there are ways in which you can tackle the situation yourself, such as by using traps and insecticides to help clear the moths out. However, finding the source is still a must so you can prevent infestation recurrence.
Preventing moths from becoming problematic in the first place is also advisable and this can be achieved through robust cleaning practices, making sure that your property is hygienic and cleaned thoroughly on a regular basis.
