Wacky Pest Wednesday: Moths
Hey there Tri-County Pest Control fans, it’s Wednesday and we’re back at it again with another edition of Wacky Pest Wednesday! Join us today as we take on the moth.
Moths are typically harmless critters who happen to wander into your home from time to time, but if left on their own, they can cause a few headaches for homeowners. From getting into your food to tearing through your clothing, it may be in your best interest to get them out of your home, or even better, to prevent them from invading in the first place.
These critters find their way into your home through an open door or a ripped screen, so by either keeping your doors closed or by repairing any rips in your screen can keep them out for good, especially at night. In addition, be sure to seal all food in air-tight containers, as moths can smell food from a great distance. Should one be fluttering around one of your lights indoors, don’t reach for the fly-swatter right away, as these creatures are harmless. Grab an empty Tupperware container and trap the moth, then release it outside. These critters are rampant pollinators, and therefore great for the environment.
Moths are gentle, but in the event of a massive infestation in your home, always know that we are here to help. One quick call to us is all you need to keep the pests out of your home for good.
Enjoy your Wednesday!
