Though rarely the first pest that comes to mind in a household setting, moths are very common in the warm, humid suburbs of regional Australia and the Blue Mountains/Hawkesbury region. Australian moths can leave a lot of damage in your carefully cultivated home. So while they may not be dangerous for human life, or for your pets, moths are drawn to your food and clothing like… well a moth to a flame. Wondering how to get rid of moths? Read on and find out.
In fact, that statement is quite ironic as moths usually avoid light. This is why they are more commonly found in attics, basements, wardrobes and pantries. In these dark places, moths reside alongside their larvae, ingesting grains, nuts, flour and even scraps of your clothing. It is important to get rid of moths as soon as possible as they can leave feces on food, thus contaminating it. You may have to throw away large amounts of food items if they have been exposed to moths or even throw away clothes and bed sheets that have since been riddled with the damage done by clothes moths. At the end of the day, the cost of a moth infestation can be alarming!
