Andover Moth Control Services
At immediate glance, moths don't seem like that big of a problem. They don't bite, suck blood, inject venom or cause any kind of pain. They also don't creep up on you in the middle of the night and give you a huge scare. That doesn't mean, however, that they don't present a lot of problems to Massachusetts homeowners. These little pests can be a huge nuisance to two key factors of comfortable home life: clothing and food. Fabric moths are among an elusive group of creatures that can digest clothing. Pantry moths can eat nearly any source of food that you have in your home, from a jar of flour to the dog's kibble.
Spotting the moths
Moths can cause a lot of damage to stored food and clothing if they are left unchecked. Thankfully, these pests are not very hard to spot if you look closely. If you see adult moths crawling on the ground, maggot-like larvae, or silk cocoons, you probably have a moth problem. Moths can usually be placed into four different categories: Common clothes moths with straw-colored wings, case bearing moths with a dark-buff color and three faint spots, brown house moths that are brown with four dark spots and white shouldered moths with a white head and mottled wings. No matter what kind of moth you find in your home, it is important that you deal with the problem as quickly as possible.
