Treating Textile Pests

Many textile pests are carried by birds as they nest in eaves or lofts in buildings. When birds leave their nests, the textile pests will then move into the building in search of alternative food sources.

Steps to Take to Control Textile Pests

Not sure if you have a problem? Look out for these textile pest signs.

  • Regular inspection of textiles to monitor for adult beetle or moth activity.

  • Routine vacuuming of carpets, rugs, upholstered furniture and fabric-covered items that cannot be laundered. Always take care when emptying the vacuum as eggs, larvae and adult textile pests will still be alive.

  • Where possible, launder fabrics and textiles on a regular basis to eliminate eggs and larvae.

  • Invest in professional bird proofing of your premises so that birds cannot roost or make nests that could harbour textile pests.
