“Moth Infestation and poisonous caterpillars set to ravage Olympic athletes” (Express, 24 July 2012)

The papers are full of these Celebrity Moths again!  You can’t run away from them and they’re back in the papers threatening to infiltrate the Olympic Village! With Stratford being one of the UK’s worst areas for moths “the news means that some of the world’s top athletes could be taking home moth larvae as well as Gold Medals!” (Daily Express, 24 July).moth deterrents in mail

The Mail reported on the 24th July that to the “inquisitive moth, the Olympic village must have looked like paradise – 9,000 brand new wardrobes, each containing enough clothing to see athletes through two weeks of the Games”. If you feel like you’ve got a similar problem there’s hope!

As ever, to avoid damage to your clothes through moth prevention you need to take precautions. Look out for the white, rice-like, moth larvae as they are what cause the damage to clothes… and with people owning so many clothes nowadays the damage can be done undisturbed as clothes are left unworn. Be particularly vigilant with clothes that are left undisturbed for long periods such as out of season knitwear. These should be stored in sweater storage bags or boxes – peva bags are ideal because peva is man-made, and with a moth deterrent inside the pack. For a complete guide to getting rid of moths your first step should be to download the Free 10 Point Moth Guide – it will guide you through your first steps to preventing Moths and products you can buy to effectively eradicate this problem.


To get started check out the basics you should be doing now!

  1. Identify the problem. Are they Clothes or Food Moths?
  2. Remove all garments from the wardrobes or drawers and thoroughly vacuum
  3. Seal areas where moths may be hiding, such as cracks in flooring, shelves, skirting
  4. Protect clothes in wardrobes & drawers naturally and effectively with Cedar, Orphea and Colibri. Natural moth deterrents will provide peace of mind if you have children or pets
  5. Don’t replace any of your garments until you have effective Moth Deterrents in place!
  6. Once gone you want to stop them coming back with the use of a Moth Killer Spray
  7. Moths in the kitchen? Using Anti Food Moth Traps are a safe way to deal with them
  8. It is a good idea to take items outside to shake, even beat them on a regular basis
  9. Keeping clothes & woollens clean will offer some protection, but correctly storing out of season items creates a barrier against the moths
  10. Store clothes in garment covers and sweater bags to give an impenetrable layer which keep them at bay. Use Moth Deterrents to protect them while in storage because moths thrive in dark, undisturbed places
