Moths represent the vast majority of lepidopteran species, a group that includes insects with two pairs of membranous wings, covered with scales and mouthparts adapted to suction. The life cycle includes the following stages: egg, larva, pupa and adult.

Clothes moths fly little and are not attracted to light. Its development is influenced by humidity, being the ideal environment with a relative humidity close to 75%, warm and dark. Females lay an average of 40 to 50 eggs over 2 to 3 weeks, dying soon after laying. The eggs, which have an adhesive secretion, are attached to the fibers of the fabric of the clothes. The larvae have 5 to 45 molts, depending on the ambient temperature and the type of food available. They are whitish in color, with a darkened head and weave a diamond-shaped cocoon while they feed, and maybe partially covered by it.

Food consists of wool, feathers, fur, hair, leather, dust, paper and occasionally cotton, linen, silk and synthetic fibers. Used clothes, dirty from drinks, food, sweat or urine, in addition to those kept for a long time, are the most attacked. The feces of moth larvae on clothes have the same coloration as the fibers in the fabrics.

A pest is defined as an outbreak of a species that becomes harmful to humans or that disturbs ecosystems, interfering with the balance of a habitat. Pests cause various epidemic diseases to humans and even animals. A pest is usually associated with a high number of a particular species that leads to ecological imbalances and can be composed of insects, mites, birds, among others.
There is often a pest in your home, without it being easily detectable. Many species hide or protect themselves when they sense the human presence, manifesting when we are not there. For this reason, you must pay attention to signs such as feces, marks, food or noisy objects for example. These are small signs that can mean you are in the presence of a pest, even if it is not visible.
Truly Nolen advises you to ask for professional help to ensure that your pest is eliminated. The combination of experience with extensive research and development results in the best protocols prepared to solve any pest problems. The continuous training of our technicians ensures correct execution, guaranteeing the effectiveness of the service, which results in the total elimination of your pest. If you try to do it in an amateur way, you run the risk of not only not eliminating the pest but also making the situation worse.
Yes. Truly Nolen and its research and development team have created a proactive program aimed at identifying and addressing the changes in the behavior of each pest from season to season. For example, in summer insects multiply more than in winter, which requires an adaptation in the pest control service. Products and equipment can be changed, as well as the methods used.
A very common mistake when talking about pests is to believe that the warmer seasons are the only times of the year when they pose a threat. This is not true, many pest species pose a year-round threat. What does exist is a change in behavior from one season to another, which does not mean that protective measures are less necessary. It is important to have pest control during the four seasons of the year so that your safety is always assured.
