Timings will vary from one type of kit to another, different sizes of rooms, contents within a room, as well as the severity of your infestation which will be unique to you. Below are various factors with more details and approximations on timings:
Room preparation: The first step to tackling a moth problem is to make sure the room is prepared. This may involve decluttering, vacuuming, checking / washing / removal of clothing, emptying tableware from cupboards, checking / repacking / removing food from cupboards … the list goes on!
You might only take 1 hour to prepare a simple office space for a treatment, but if you have a serious infestation in a bedroom you could spend a day or more checking garments and cleaning storage spaces ready to receive your Moth Killer Kit treatment. Similarly, if you’re preparing a kitchen for a Pantry Moth Killer Kit treatment you might spend half a day or more checking food, cleaning and moving tableware etc.
It’s important to note that even if you call in a pest controller, room preparation will still need to be carried out.
Killer Kit application process: Timings will vary depending on the size of your room and the type / size of Killer Kit being applied.
Moths are more active during the warmer months. However they can infest all year round in our homes as we like to keep our homes warm! We would recommend using a Killer Kit at any time of the year when you have a concern about moths in your home, or if you see signs of moth larvae or fresh damage to clothing or carpets.
Yes - you should remove these items until fogging is completed.
No - these items are okay to leave in place.
Yes. You should turn off ALL ignition sources such as pilot lights (shut off gas valves), other open flames or electrical appliances that cycle off and on (i.e., refrigerators, thermostats, etc.) All details to protect you from fire risk are found on the product label and you should not be concerned if instructions are followed.
We do not recommend using Foggers in the kitchen.
Yes you can! We recommend removing clothing from your closets (or drawers) before you treat. When the spray has dried you can put your clothing back. Once our sprays have dried they will not transfer onto garments stored within the closet (or drawers)!
No! It is not recommended to use any of the spray products from our Killer Kits directly onto clothing. Instead, to protect your clothing we recommend washing any infested garments and/or deep freezing items for 72 hours to kill eggs or larvae.
The Powder is ideal for use on severely damaged areas of carpet and other textiles to hit that area hard and suffocate the problem! It can also be applied under furniture and around room edges where moths prefer to lay their eggs.
No. Powder is intended for use only on carpets, rugs and other textiles.
As long as the powder is dry it should not be a problem to remove it with a vacuum cleaner. We recommend the following process for different types of vacuum cleaner:
Vacuum Cleaner with bag: We recommend emptying the bag while wearing your supplied mask & gloves to remove the risk of direct contact or inhalation. Seal the vacuum cleaner bag inside an additional waste bag before depositing in your general waste bin.
Bagless Vacuum Cleaner: While wearing your supplied mask & gloves carefully empty the vacuum cleaner into a waste bag. Seal the bag and deposit in your general waste bin.
The products within our Killer Kit are very effective at eliminating moths, larvae and eggs. As long as you have followed the User Guide to use the correct amount of product, the treatment will have been effective. You can sometimes see moths flying afterwards. They may have come from other rooms, from outside, or in some cases moths will actively hide away from a treatment. However, as long as you have your traps positioned they will catch lingering adult males, and help to prevent further eggs from being laid.
If an infestation is particularly severe you may need to carry out a follow up treatment to completely eliminate them. Unfortunately moths and larvae can be stubborn to remove and it can take time. You should have sufficient spray and powder (where applicable) within your Killer Kit to carry out additional application to targeted areas.
