Moth Control in Dorset

Carpet Moth Removal in Poole and Bournemouth, Dorset
Pest Overview
Pest Preview – Where did those holes in my carpet come from?

Carpet Moth and Clothes Moths will require professional attention. What seem like small infestations can actually be extremely large due to the moths preference of utilising hidden areas to enable successful development of its four life cycle stages.

Moths are one of the more interesting pest species as a result of their metamorphosis when the eggs hatch into active larvae ( caterpillars ) then in most cases in silken cocoons they pupate ( basically tissue reverts to liquid in the transformation to the adult).

How we help
Free site survey

TP Pest Services offer free site surveys on all residential and commercial properties. We are Borough of Poole Trading Standards Approved demonstrating our clear commitment to customer satisfaction with Industry leading training and Technicians that really care about providing a quality service.

We will advise on the best treatment following the survey which in the case of moths can include a residual spray to the carpeted areas followed by fumigation.

Control Method

Moth infestations need a planned approach. The Moth infestation can be dented with vigorous hoovering (empty the bag immediately), the treatment of carpeted areas with residual and growth regulator applications to eradicate the Moths at all lifecycle stages. It is crucial that an IGR ( insect growth regulator ) be used and this is what is lacking in most over the counter publicly available treatments.

We use the industry’s two leading chemicals which provide an encapsulated residual spray lasting upto three months within carpeted areas and also fumigation services where required.

Facts about the pest


The Common Clothes Moth – Tineola bisselliella, the Case Bearing Clothes Moth – Tinaea pellionella, the White Shouldered House Moth – Endrosis sarcitrella, the Brown Tail Moth – Euproctis chrysorrhoea, The Warehouse Moth – Ephestia elutella.

There are other moth species but those above are the most common moth we are asked to deal with here in Dorset and the surrounding areas.

If you have a birds nest in the eves of your house it may be possible the Brown House Moth will be visiting your kitchen, larder, bedrooms and outbuildings.

In commercial food premises and farming the most serious pest is the Warehouse Moth and White Shouldered House Moth as its faecal matter and silk production causes serious contamination. In Dorset we have an abundance of the Brown Tail Moth which is more specific to the South Coast of England commonly found in orchards. It is the furry caterpillar stage of this Moth we see so abundantly on bushes. The hairs of this caterpillar easily detatch and this can cause severe irritation to humans.

Treating any Moth infestation requires a planned approach to eradication at all of the lifecycle stages. Egg – Larva – Pupae – Adult. Techniques will include fogging, residual applications and heat treatments of clothing to completely remove this pest.

  • Very Impressed!

    I called TP Pest Control Services as I suspected mice were nesting at the back of the property. Terry was able to respond quickly, despite it being late afternoon on a Friday. What I thought was a mouse, was actually a rat, so I was so pleased that Terry was able to resolve this for me on the very same day. Very impressed with the service received and would highly recommend Terry and his team.

  • Highly Recommend!

    I first contacted Terry to request help in eradicating a family of rats enjoying life in our loft, mum plus twelve offspring. Having now completed this task to my total satisfaction I would describe Terry as a true professional with huge experience in the subject, enthusiastic to get everything right and always available with a friendly explanatory word as work progressed. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Terry to anybody looking for help with a pest problem.

  • Excellent service.

    After mice / rats chewed through wiring in loft of our 1600 Cottage, Terry (and Max) came to the rescue. Did a thorough survey. Laid traps. Then did a complete clean of loft to remove droppings etc after re-wiring and before loft was re-boarded. Would definitely recommend.
