The Advantages Of Heat Treatments For Moths

Many homeowners in North London are constantly having to deal with pest infestations. And one of the most notoriously difficult pests to get rid of are moths. Moths have traditionally been controlled by insecticides and fumigation, but these methods are not nearly as effective as heat treatments. 

Apart from the fact that pest-killing chemicals pose a health threat to humans, they do not eradicate the moths’ eggs. Heat treatments, on the other hand, kill every stage of the moth life cycle. This means infestations are so much less likely to reoccur. In fact, part of the reason we use heat treatments for moths is to ensure that they don’t come back. 

The technique used in moth heat treatment involves generating a high temperature in the infected room or building. This temperature is high enough to cause adult moths, larvae and eggs to die quickly. 

In this post, we are going to look at a few of the advantages of having heat treatments for moths in your North London property.

The Safest Possible Option

Unlike pesticides, treating moth problems with heat is a safe process. It has no known adverse effects on humans or pets. Pesticides are known to contain carcinogens that are harmful to human health, while heat treatments help to completely avoid these potential dangers.

The safe, toxin-free nature of moth heat treatments also means zero impact on the environment. 

You can easily carry on as normal straight after our pest control treatments. Disruption to your life and daily routine will be minimal. With pest chemicals, you would need to wipe everything down afterwards, whereas heat is completely non-toxic and doesn’t leave behind any residue. 

Complete and Long Term Eradication

We are confident that your moth infestation will be completely removed by using heat treatment. Chemical-based techniques don’t kill moth eggs, which carries the risk of re-infestation. Chemicals also can’t generally penetrate into those deeper areas where moths can hide. This ensures that heat treatment will kill all the visible insects as well as the hidden moths too. Heat can get into the smallest nooks and crannies where moths have made their nests. And, because heat treatment doesn’t leave any moths, or their larvae and eggs behind, it offers a long term solution. 

Another advantage to moth heat treatment is that this method usually only needs to be implemented once. In contrast, pesticide spray and fumigation treatments have to be repeated at regular intervals.
