Moth Control Company Near Greenville SC


Among the many pests that have attacked Greenville, homes are the moth. They ruin paper, clothing, and sofas.

For centuries, the moth has fought for the kind of affection that we give to their cousins, the butterfly. Butterflies are rarely known as pests. Some cultures revere them To us, a butterfly is a thing of beauty, with its graceful aerial voyages and colorful wings.

Moths, on the other hand, ruin many people’s lives. Well, maybe not lives, but clothes, books, and other properties. They may not cause any health risks but they can be such rascals.

Where Do Moths Come From? 

Moths were first introduced to the United States in 1869 by an amateur entomologist from France named Etienne Leopold Trouvelot. He wanted to establish a silkworm industry in North America, so he tried to breed gypsy moths with native caterpillars. He kept the caterpillars in enclosures until a storm destroyed these caterpillars' enclosures, releasing them.  

Moths Can Be A Nuisance

Some moths can ruin your clothes. The clothes moths, as they are known, eat the protein found in your dirty clothes or carpets. They also can be found under sofas or beds, where it is dark and they can remain undisturbed.

On the other hand, pantry moths can ruin your food due to contamination from their webbings, feces, cocoons, and droppings.

Having moths in your house can also be some sort of mental torture. You might find them flying all around you, and at night fly noisily and deprive you of sleep. You would not want that to happen, don’t you?
