Vermicure’s Carpet Moth Control Services 

Carpet moths, also known as Trichophaga Tapetzella, naturally survive outside and are most commonly found in bird nests, feeding on the protein in their discarded feathers. They are most active during the summer months, laying up to 200-300 eggs at a time. Unfortunately, moths can be inadvertently brought inside your home from your clothes, shoes or furniture and due to our homes being much warmer than outside, they can breed all year long. As a result, a moth infestation can develop and multiply quickly.


Clothes and carpet moth larvae enjoy natural textile fibres as they are rich in keratin, and they turn this keratin into beneficial nutrients for growth. However, if left untreated, moths could damage carpets, curtains, wall hangings, clothes, towels and furniture. Therefore, at Vermicure, we offer a 24-hour pest control service for carpet moths and other pests to efficiently control and remove all insects in your home.

I couldn't be more pleased with the service I received from Vermicure Pest Control for dealing with a bees nest. They were incredibly prompt and exceptionally courteous. Most importantly, they did an outstanding job in safely removing the nest without causing any harm to the bees. I highly recommend Vermicure for anyone in need of efficient and professional pest control services.

Signs Of A Moth Infestation 

Moth Damage. The most common indication of a moth infestation is finding textiles damaged. This could be your favourite blanket, the living room carpet or your bedroom curtains. If you suspect you have moths living in your home, inspect your soft furnishings and see if you can identify any worn-away areas. This might also be a sign of carpet beetles, so look out for other signs too.

Moth Eggs. Another common sign of these pests is finding eggs, larvae or pupae (moth cocoons) around your home or business. Moths enjoy hot and humid places and strategically lay their eggs in dark, safe locations on your property. Therefore, it is common to find these along the edges of carpets, under furniture, skirting boards, or behind radiators.

Seeing A Moth. Finally, adult moths are more significant in size; therefore, they are easier to spot. It is rare for carpet moths to fly, but you may notice these pests hopping around on the floor.

Commercial Moth Pest Control 

Finding moths on your property can be stressful and result in costly repairs. This is exceptionally important if you own a commercial business, as this can negatively impact your brand’s image and reputation. Furthermore, if you work in the hospitality industry preparing or serving food, you must ensure there is no contamination to stay legally compliant. If you are found to have breached Food Safety and Hygiene Regulations 2013, you could face damaging fines, which are based on your company’s turnover. 

Likewise, if you have warehouses containing fabrics and textiles, this could result in damaged stock. Carpet moths seek dark and undisturbed places rich in food sources to increase their young’s chances of survival. Unfortunately, this makes your stock room the perfect home for moths. 

To combat this, Vermicure offers annual pest control contracts to ensure your business stays pest free for good. Find out more about our commercial pest control services by speaking with a professional pest exterminator at 07951157254
