Moth control is one of the many pest control services we offer to our customers in Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru, Machakos, Thika, Kisumu, Nyeri, Thika and the rest of Kenya.
Most moths in Kenya are seen as pests due to the damage their larvae cause to materials, textiles and stored products. Unlike other pests, moths pose you no health risks.
Once inside your home or business, moths can severely damage natural fibres in carpets, clothes, fabrics, fur and even leather. Moth caterpillars cause the damage by eating the protein (keratin) found in natural materials like wool, cotton and silk. This puts your delicate items at particular risk of damage.
As experts in the habits of moth species, our PEMAK (Kenyan Pest Control Association) certified technicians are able to offer tailored solutions and preventative advice specific to the type of moth found on your premises (these could either be a textile or moth that feeds on stored food products).
We have a variety of solutions to quickly resolve moth infestations in your home or business.
Our treatments include using Luminos fly killer units, insecticide, fogging and fumigation methods to chemical free ‘heat’ treatments suitable for delicate items.
How to get rid of moths
An established infestation may often require professional treatment to get rid of moths effectively. Although many homeowners struggle with do it yourself moth control remedies the results are often less than satisfactory. Small problems can develop into large ones and this is when many people seek out the services of a pest control professional.
Tips for getting rid of moths
For the best chance of getting rid of moths in your home, follow these tips:
Change vacuum bags often to make sure you remove all larvae and eggs from your property. Wash all fabrics, soft furnishings, linens, curtains and towels in the affected area – moth larvae find these as tasty as clothes.

Getting rid of moths with Bestcare Pest Control Nairobi Services
We can help you with our full range of effective solutions to treat infestations and eliminate your moth problem. Our effective treatment is suitable for eliminating moths, eggs and larvae in delicate items that cannot be laundered. Prior to recommending a moth control solution, your technician will properly identify the moth species affecting your property. Different moth pest species require different treatment methods to effectively control them. Your technician will select a moth treatment method based on a number of factors: species, quantity of stored products, type of structure, etc.
For stored products moths e.g. Indian Meal Moths, Mediterranean flour moth, etc. in homeowner accounts, non-chemical control methods (sanitation, better storage, low temperature/freezing) and spraying may be are used.
For large scale commercial accounts, fumigation is an effective option. At times, low-volume chemical treatments can also be effective. For the fabric moth pests, non-chemical methods e.g. vacuuming/sanitation, proper storage, and conventional materials e.g. liquid sprays and dusts are commonly used. Monitoring using various traps including pheromone traps where applicable is done thereafter to ensure moth problems do not persist.
