How to Get Rid of Moths


Moths don't bite, buzz, or sting — but discover wriggling larvae in your cereal or chewed holes in your cashmere sweaters and it's clear that a moth infestation is nothing short of super frustrating. Eliminate these fluttering pests from your home by following these easy steps.

1. Identify what kind of moths you have.
Homeowners usually come into contact with one of two types of moths: pantry moths and clothes moths. Just like their categories imply, these insects go after different food sources in different parts of the house.

The pantry variety can include species like the Indian meal moth but most go after grains and dry goods: cereals, crackers, rice, and other stored foods, according to Orkin entomologist Chelle Hartzer. You might notice icky webbing or tiny caterpillars inside your snacks, a not-so-pleasant gift from the pupae and larvae.

Clothes moths naturally like closets and wardrobes, with the caterpillars relying on natural fibers like linen, wool, silk, or fur for sustenance. Besides holes, these pests can also leave behind shed pupae skins, webbing, and frass, insect excrement that looks like large grains of sand, according to pest management brand Woodstream.

2. Start cleaning and throw out infested materials.
The first step in stopping a moth infestation is getting out the trash bags. Throw out any potentially contaminated food and get it out of the house.

If you're dealing with clothes moths, start making a laundry pile. Wash what you can with hot water and detergent, then dry on low heat to kill larvae, advises Carolyn Forte, Director of the Cleaning Products and Textiles Labs at the Good Housekeeping Institute. Dry cleaning can also debug garments.

In both the kitchen and the closet, vacuum everything: the carpet, walls, baseboards ... you name it. Then throw out the vacuum bag right away as it may contain eggs. Finally, scrub shelves and walls thoroughly.

Call in a professional if you can't identify the source of the problem. A pest control operator can also help with widespread infestations or hard-to-clean items ike moth-infested furniture or rugs.
