Unlike most annoying flying insects, the moth is considered a quiet and inconspicuous butterfly. But the damage from it is difficult to underestimate. There are several types of insect. The greatest harm is caused by the clothes moth, whose larvae feed on tissue fibers. With a long stay in the house, she is able to change her diet and switch from woolen materials and fur to synthetics. Many of us are faced with a situation where small holes formed on fabric household items, clothes, headdresses. But this is not so bad. A catastrophe when things are completely eaten away by larvae and cannot be restored.

The second most popular type is the food moth. It is small in size and is most often found in containers with cereals, bags of flour. Also, moths can be seen in containers where spices, dried fruits, mushrooms, cocoa are stored. Despite the short life cycle, the insect manages to spoil all the products in 2 weeks, leaving feces. They are no longer fit for food. And if, nevertheless, a person has used them, then this can lead to intoxication and serious allergic diseases.

There are many ways to deal with a 'silent' pest. These are folk recipes, as well as household and professional drugs. They all differ in a different principle of action and form of release. Today in stores you can buy aerosols, sprays, traps, gels, powders that either scare away or destroy insects, or have a combined effect. Our experts analyzed the offers on the market and selected the most effective ones. These products have also been recognized as the best ordinary buyers who have tried them out in practice.
