Insect Control Insights

Background

Insect control is becoming an important issue for many UK households as we are currently facing a growth in moth infestations. Traditionally, moths would have been found in old density housing; typically found in areas like London. However here at Acana we hear from people that have found moth infestations in new builds, and countryside properties.

Moths are the only pest that the UK suffers from all year round. Because moths derive their nourishment from clothing, they can be seen to be a serious pest. Moths particularly like wool, but they also like natural fibres, as well as stored foods such as grains.

At Acana, we find that there are three kinds of moths that generally cause an issue for our customers. These are:

 

1. Common Clothes Moth (Tineola bisselliella)

3. Common Food Moth (Hofmannophila pseudospretella)

2. Case Bearing Carpet Moth (Tinea pellionella)

Generally, moths are drawn to light; but the moths that infest closets, clothes and furniture actually prefer dark, undisturbed areas.

Common Clothes moths (Tineola bisselliella) Case Bearing Moths (otherwise known as Carpet Moths) (Tinea pellionella) tend to be less active in brightly lit environments and prefer to stay close to their food sources, whichcan make them difficult to detect. Carpet moths tend to be low flying and whitish in colour.

Adult moths do not have mouths so they are not responsible for damage to clothes or fabrics. The larvae and eggs are the ones responsible for holes found in clothing items or even damage that has been done to furniture. Don't be distracted by the sight of a moth flying somewhere in your home as they are not the cause of the problem.
The only way to deal with the problems of eggs and larvae is by using chemical action. This is the only way to kill the eggs and larvae to ensure no more damage to items in your home.

At Acana, we have responded to this demand by creating a System of Care for Complete Home protection against Moths. Our passion for protecting homes has enabled our moth killing products to become market leaders in just three years.
