The King-Sabin neighborhood of Portland is mainly residential, with areas of commerce flanking it on all sides. This proximity to other homes and business makes homes in the King-Sabin area particularly vulnerable to pest infestations. Moth infestations can claim more than just your winter gear, it can corrupt pantries and dry goods as well.

Moth size and coloring vary greatly, but they are usually 1/2 to 1 inch long and are typically a pale white brown or gray. The damage that they can do is seen on items of clothing, curtains, or other linens.  However, the moths that you see flying around are not what is causing the damage. It is during the larval stage that moths feed on wool, silk, and other materials in preparation for the cocoon stage. 

Meal moths on the other hand, occupy dried goods and can quickly infest your kitchen. We have seen people using a number of home remedies to try to get rid of moths in the King-Sabin 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).
