Recently had a new ktichen rennovation work done on my home so this caused some infestation of mice in my home which I was not happy about. Called Biopest as I liked the information that was added on their webpage. The technician came & did a good inspection around my home & advised me on the best way to make my home proofed against future infestations. I was very happy with his advice & he also added further measures on points of my home where the problem was occurring. I was very happy with the service they provided & also thanks to Eva for her kind & reassuring manner when I called to make a booking. Unfortunately my neighbour also had some problems & I recommended Biopest to her & she was very happy with the advice she was given when she had her home inspected.

Very refreshing to speak to a company that is honest and not just there to make a quick buck like some other companies. Asked for pest proofing and Eva was great and very honest in that they could do it but it's unlikely to help and why. And referring me to someone for further advice.

From the first Email Ewa was incredible professional and reassuring. Great customer service all around and very professional. I had my whole flat sprayed twice both time very professional and helpful. Staff were happy to follow up and answer any questions I had. And I know I had lots since I experienced bugs for the first time ever and they pushed me almost to insanity considering with lock down i was stuck home 24/7. I can't recommend them enough although I hope I will never need to call for their services again. Thank you again!!!

Pest control at its finest! So I've had a few different issues over the years, ranging from mice to rats (eeek!) to squirrels and over lockdown these traumatic "attacks" have been regular and in some cases persistent. I've contacted several other pest services but once I spoke to and had a visit from the London team, I've not bothered with any other service providers. From the office team's assessment through to the site technician's prompt and on-time visits, I have not been disappointed. Whilst most of the other control services focused on resolution, Bioactive Pest Control looked at both resolution and prevention. The technician took his time to understand the problem and the underlying root cause, some of which were glaringly obvious to the other providers but had never been raised. Also, I have found an attention to detail and conscientiousness, which is above and beyond any other pest service to date. I would heartily recommend for a thorough, professional approach to ridding you of any unwanted pests.

Common Types Of Moth To Look Out For

There are three types of moths that can destroy a lot of stuff you hold dear including that valuable wedding dress that was passed down through generations.

Clothes Moths

Clothes moths prefer darker environments such as closets and attic spaces. It is the larvae of these moths that do damage by creating feeding tubes out of fabric and feed on wool, silk, cashmere and leather. These larvae can be very difficult to spot as their feeding tube is often the same colour as the fabric they are situated on.

It’s important to clean clothing properly before storing and check any second hand or vintage clothes before brining them into your home

Food Pantry Moths

This is one of the most common cause of moth infestations. They are attracted to a wide range of food staples such as oatmeal, flour, cereals, and any type of dry goods that can be stored.

They lay their eggs in the food and even though they don’t pose a threat to human health the simple thought of eating moth eggs or larvae is not pleasant.

Carpet Moths

This species of moth is different to the clothes moth although they are smaller. The carpet moth larvae are not limited only to carper fiber. It can feed on anything made of natural fire including upholstered furniture, cushions, and curtains. They can be found on any fabric item and  can also live in air vents or lint ducts.

These moths are attracted to dirt and debris found on carpets. Vacuuming regularly is one of the best ways to prevent carpet moths from being in your home. It’s important to remember to vacuum under furniture, and other areas that are hard to reach, where moths might lay their eggs.

Common Problems Caused by Moth Infestations

While moths are often dismissed as harmless, their presence can lead to a variety of problems, especially when they invade in large numbers. Here are some of the most common issues associated with moth infestations:

Fabric Damage

  • Clothes and Textiles: The most well-known culprits, clothes moths (such as the Tineola bisselliella), are notorious for their appetite for fabrics. They are especially attracted to natural fibres like wool, silk, fur, and feathers. Their larvae feed on these materials, causing holes and ruining clothing, carpets, upholstered furniture, and curtains.
  • Costly Repairs and Replacements: Dealing with the aftermath of a moth infestation often means costly repairs or replacements of damaged items, some of which may be irreplaceable, such as heirlooms or expensive garments.

Food Contamination

  • Pantry Moths: Another problematic group includes pantry moths, like the Indian meal moth. These pests infest and contaminate stored food products such as grains, nuts, flour, and cereals. Their presence is not only off-putting but can lead to significant food waste and increased grocery expenses.
  • Health Risks: While moths themselves are not known to transmit diseases, the waste products left by larvae and the contamination of food can lead to health issues if ingested, including gastrointestinal discomfort.

Allergic Reactions

  • Moth Scales and Dust: Moths can shed tiny scales (similar to dander) which become airborne and can trigger allergic reactions or exacerbate asthma in sensitive individuals. The presence of moths in a living space can therefore be a concern for those with respiratory conditions.

Secondary Infestations

  • Attracting Predators: Moths and their larvae can attract other pests into the home, such as carpet beetles, which also feed on natural fibres. This can compound the pest control problem, leading to a need for broader pest management strategies.
