Insect Control in Melbourne

Prime pest solutions can identify the source of infestation and provide treatment solutions. During pest services, technicians inspect specific areas, look for stored pest activity, and then recommend appropriate treatment actions.

Treatment methods may vary depending on the level of infestation, harmful pest species, and contaminated product. These methods range from pheromone traps, contaminated food removal, and chemical treatments.

How Moth Appear?

There are several moth species whose larvae invade stored food. Some of these are the warehouse moth, the Mediterranean flour moth, the Indian flour moth, and the tropical warehouse moth. Different species have different shapes, but adults are usually very small (about 1 cm long). Larvae are usually white with a pink or brown head and up to 12 mm long.

Moth control is important because moths can cause serious damage to clothing, carpets, tapestries, furniture, and other items made of natural fabrics, wool, and fur. They can also contaminate food with their larvae and damage stored grains, cereals, and other food products.

In addition, moths can cause allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to them. By controlling moths and their larvae, you can protect your home and belongings from damage and keep your family safe from potential health risks.


The presence of these insects in large numbers can seriously damage food and render it unsalable or unusable. The larvae also spin silk threads to hold flour and grain together as they crawl through food. These species of moths typically infest dry grain products such as flour, grains, cookies, dog meals, and breakfast cereals. It is also commonly found in nuts, chocolate, and spices.

Home Infestation Usually Occur in One of Two Ways: –

  • A contaminated product was brought into the apartment
  • Open packages of food have been stored in the back of a cupboard for several months. This can cause an invasion and spread to other stored foods.

Occasional sightings of harmless wild moths in your home are common during the summer months, as they often enter through open doors and windows at night. In order to prevent further damage to your home, you should act quickly to locate and eliminate the source of the break-in.
