All over Australia, treatment of most wool and wool-blend rugs has been an essential practice to prevent damage from rug moths. Naturally, rugs and carpets made of synthetic fibres are resistant to insects. This is due to the fact that these kinds of fibres are not food sources, making these even more resistant to moths, usually called carpet beetles.
Though moths don’t usually stay on synthetic fibres, there are still moths already in the home. These can still lay eggs in the rug pile which can hatch within 8 to 15 days. Another problem that home owners face, especially those with pets is the presence of fleas in their rugs or carpets. Basically, fleas do not damage carpets and rugs fibres. Instead, they just die there unless they find another animal as source of food.
Frequent use of vacuuming aids for rugs and carpets can solve problems with rug moths and fleas however; the vacuum bags must be removed and maintained often. In removing beetles, rug moths and other insects, it’s better to seek help from pest control specialists like All Aces Services. We can be found on the south side of Brisbane at Murrarie.
Preventing rug moths and other insects
To be able to prevent infestation of rug moths, fleas and other common insects found at home, home owners must keep their textile furnishings clean. Spills must be cleaned immediately because these are possible food sources. Upholstery, carpets and rugs must also be brushed following a schedule as insects are less likely to survive in a clean environment.
Regular cleaning of textile furnishings can be done by home owners but calling qualified technicians of All Aces Services is more advantageous. It’s more hassle free on the part of home owners. It’s also a string guarantee that infestation will be eventually decreased.
