I seem to have quite a few little moths around the curtains in the front room. There is always between 3 and 6. They are less than a centimeter long, so only small ones. Now I have noticed them upstairs. How do I get rid of them?
You either need cedarwood, lavender, or something chemical. Suggest you have a look at Lakelands range of sachets to hang in wardrobes and you can get cedar rings to go on the curtain rings which make the moths feel sick and they bugger off.
Fear not though, not all moths eat cloth - apparently.
Ours are a nightmare and I'm sure are munching the carpet. Have had Rentokil in once already a few years ago and yet THEY ARE BACK. The little buggers.
We bought these funny strip things which apparently give off moth pheremones and lure them to a sticky death. We have caught HUNDREDS (I'm not kidding) of the little buggers like this and while there are still a few fluttering around, there are not nearly as many.
Lavender oil sprinkled liberally around is supposed to help (apparently it puts them off laying eggs... which I think are the munchers, not the moths themselves.....)
Good luck, if you come up with any fabulous solutions, be sure to let me know (please!)
