How To Get Rid Of Clothes Moths?
If you’ve already discovered a moth infestation, you’ll have to throw away the clothes that are already ruined. The rest of your clothes will need a thorough washing in hot water, or a trip to the dry cleaners; dry cleaning is a very good way to kill the eggs and larvae. If you can’t wash certain items in hot water, you can hang them out in the sun or put them in the freezer for a few days.
You’ll also need to thoroughly scrub down the areas where you discovered the damaged clothing. You may also want to call in a professional pest control service to make sure any hidden larvae are treated and dead.
When it comes to stopping clothes moths, prevention is key. Don’t put unwashed clothing items back in your wardrobe, and don’t let your washing remain for long in the laundry basket. Also, if you are going to store your natural fiber clothing, store them in vacuum sealed plastic bags.
