Homes in the iconic Boise neighborhood in Portland are historic, classic old Portland homes, rich with antique wood and overflowing native gardens. These same details of the neighborhood that make it so effortlessly charming are the same elements that attract invasive pests, like moths.
If you are finding damages to your clothing or linen in your Boise home, there are a few signs to observe to identify if moths are causing it. First, check to see what material it is since moth larvae will usually trend towards eating wool and silk. Secondly, the damage will look like small round holes in the fabric and has often been described as looking like a cigarette burn.
We have observed that many people try home remedies to get rid of moths in the Boise area before calling us. Common products consist of moth balls and cedar chips and while these items work well as a repellent for adult moths, it is important to note that they do not have an effect on what is actually causing the damage (the larvae).
At Wildwoods Pest Control, we employ an approach to pest control called “Integrated Pest Management,” we believe that each home should be treated differently because each home is unique. Portland’s many varied neighborhoods each have specific needs and vulnerabilities. Wildwoods has served the Portland community for several years and can create timely and effective solutions to all your wildlife and pest control issues.
