The Maplewood area of Clackamas is mostly residential, with family homes dominating the forested landscape. In tightly developed communities such as Maplewood, pest issues can quickly spread. Moths, in particular, can cause significant damage if left unchecked.
Moths’ 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 in the larval stage that they are feeding on wool, silk, and other materials.
Common products consist of mothballs 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).
Treating for moths is simple with the products available to a professional pest control company.
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. Troutdale’s many varied neighborhoods each have specific needs and vulnerabilities. Wildwoods has served Troutdale area communities for several years and can create timely and effective solutions to all your wildlife and pest control issues.
