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.

    Terry was extremely friendly and very thorough. He located the problem and discovered I had both rats and mice. He fitted 11 covers over all the vents outside my bungalow, set traps and eradicated the problem in three visits. Thanks to Terry I am now able to sleep at night!

  • Recommend to anyone!

    We had mice and rats in our shed and garden. We found this out when we discovered a hole that the mice had made through the shed and grass seeds were all over the floor that were originally in a box! We called Terry and he and his dog max came to us within a few days. He explained what he suspected and informed us about how he was going to treat this situation. He placed some traps down (a bit different to the ones you imagine!) and explained how they worked. He came back the following week and concluded it was definitely mice and rats. He left it a couple more weeks and checked again. We found his knowledge to be brilliant. He is really nice too which is always good when you rely on a professional to help you. We would definitely use him again and recommend to anyone.

  • Thank you very much TP pest control!

    We contacted Terry and his assistant Max when we suspected rats. Terry with a full diary managed to fit us in straight away and was at the door in the same day. He was very polite, well mannered and talked us through the service he would provide. It was a quick and efficient job carried out by both Terry and his right hand man Max. He was on time and always went the extra mile! After a few visits the problem has been dealt with and we are extremely satisfied with the service we have received from Terry, he is a top bloke and also made us aware of how we can prevent these problems in the future. I cant fault Terry and the service TP pest control provided. I couldn't recommend him anymore!

    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.
