How can I get rid of small moths in my house?


Answer by  justmesuzanne (625)

You can swat them, shoo them out, get geckos to eat them, spray them (not recommended!) or just wait until their season is over, and they will be gone! Protect your woolens with mothballs, and they shouldn't be much of a problem.

One way to get rid of small moths is by buying moth balls. Another way is to look in your cereal, rice, oatmeal or anything containing grains for any larvae and cocoons. That's usually where house moths like to breed and have plenty of food to survive. Another way is to buy bug spray.

You can purchase moth balls to put in certain areas. Those don't work well after a while. Sometimes you need to get a bug bomb and bomb your house. Remember to put all of your pets outside or take them out of the house to another location. No humans should remain inside either.

Well a good way that is tried and true is using moth balls. Also make sure you keep windows and doors shut as they are attracted to light.

Clean your house, using cleaner with lavender or bleach, as this will repel moths. Moth balls can be placed in closets or pine hangers and pine chips work also.

An ideal method of eliminating small moths is to use an electric fly swatter to manually dispatch the insect. Alternatively, the use of predatory animals such as felines, or non-poisonous spiders works effectively. Alternatively, a mild insecticide applied to surfaces favored by the moths works well.

What you have in your house are most likely meal moths. One way to start is to look for their nest and get rid of it. Meal moths usually nest in your pantry or kitchen, they usually infest anything that has to do with grain or dried foods, and you need to throw out anything you think is infested.

You should never use moth balls as they are poisonous and cause kidney failure You should keep dry cereals in plastic containers with closed lids. Keep your house pantries cleaned out every 6 months and you should not have a problem. I clean the refrigerator with vinegar..keeps bugs away!


Answer by  Anonymous

I have been fighting meal moths for weeks. Have purchased pantry moth traps from Amazon. I sure hope they work. I've already tried everything else.


Answer by  Foxylady307 (8)

Please never use MOTHBALLS...they are dangerous and cause kidney failure. They affect other people who hate the smell! Use plastics for cereals.
