More about the food moths

What's the difference with the textile moth?

The major difference between these 2 moths is their diet. The textile moth feeds on keratin and protein found in animal hair, mainly wool, fur and feathers.
The second difference is their size: they are much smaller, measuring 6 to 8 mm in length, and are creamy/beige in color.
 

Moth nuisance

Moths are harmless, but they leave behind excrement, corpses, webs, and cocoon remains.
This can lead to: food loss, allergic reactions

How to avoid an infestation?

Food moths can be carried by the products you buy. All it takes is a larva or cocoon inside or outside the package to cause an infestation.
To keep these pests out of your home, it's important to store dry foods in airtight containers and inspect them regularly. Contaminated food should be discarded, and containers thoroughly cleaned to remove any food residue that might attract moths.

Call on our Pest Control teams if you have a food moth infestation. Our technicians are trained in the procedures and operating methods required for effective, long-lasting desensitization against these pests, while being mindful of our environmental impact.
