Regular monitoring and professional solutions can effectively eliminate an infestation from textile or fabric pests such as varied carpet beetle, fur beetle or leather beetle - without harming delicate items or valuable artefacts such as in museums or antique dealers. A professional pest control service is critical to help identify the invading pest species and offer a tailored solution for successful control.
The term 'textile or fabric pest' covers a wide variety of insect pest species, from carpet and fur beetles to common clothes moths. What they do have in common is the ability for their larvae to digest 'keratin' a protein found in natural fibres like wools, silks, leather, hair, fur and feathers. Differing methods of control will be needed depending on the specific fabric pest species that is causing damage and the items being damaged.
We offer a specific ‘integrated textile and fabric pest monitoring and control package’ tailored to suit your individual business needs. Our aim is to resolve the infestation safely and effectively with the minimum of fuss and disruption to your business.
