How to Get Rid of Case Bearing Carpet Moths and Beetles

Carpet Moths or Case Bearing Carpet Moths [ Tinea Pellionella ] are about 5 - 7mm long with a wingspan of about 15mm. These insects are brown in colour with black spots on their forewings.

These bugs live outdoors in birds nests, on animal skin and in discarded fur but they also like the warmth provided by our centrally heated houses and that's when they begin to become a problem.

When carpet moths have found their way into the home they can then reap untold damage to wool carpets and rugs as well as damaging clothes made of natural fibres. It is the larval stage of the insect the does the damage.

The female moth lays hundreds of eggs, normally in dark, out of the way places such as under immovable furniture, under carpet edges or rugs and in any nook and cranny available. You may have seen the moths flying around or you may have discovered a batch of eggs to alert you to the fact that you have a carpet moth infestation. The larvae spin silk cocoons [ cases ] in which they live and these resemble grains of rice.

If you have found that you have an infestation of these insects and before you commence any treatment to kill and get rid of these damage causing pests, we would always advise that you carry out the following tasks.

[a] Check the chimney for any birds nests

[b] Vacuum thoroughly all around in any affected room using an extension tube to vacuum under heavy furniture

[c] Wash or dry clean any clothes made of natural fibres

Follow with the application of carpet moth pest control products. To make sure you get rid of a carpet moth infestation a combination of products is needed as each product has its own specific function. These insects along with clothes moths, fleas and bed bugs can only be fully eradicated with a mix of products.

We have put together Carpet Moth Kill and Control Kits that contain all the products needed to eliminate carpet moths and their larvae or to carry out a preventive fumigation treatment. We supply Carpet Moth Smoke Bombs and Power Foggers which as well as being in the complete kits also are for use in giving a fumigation treatment to rooms that appear to be unaffected by these damage causing pests, just as a precaution.

Our Carpet Moth Killing Insecticide is a must to give a fast knock down and kill effect as well as leaving a residual layer that continues to work in exterminating any insect that crawls or lands on the treated area for up to 4 weeks after treatment. Use this insecticide to spray treat all carpets, rugs and soft furnishings.

Another must is the use of either our Carpet Moth Insecticide Powder or our Organic Carpet Moths Killer Powder that is for use around carpet edges and under immovable furniture which are the places where these insect pests are often found when a property has a problem with carpet moths.

Please note: We would always advise that you smoke bomb the loft or attic area as well, because frequently carpet moths like to live and breed in the insulation / rock wool found up there.
