About Outdoor Moth Control

Moths are actually quite under-appreciated flying insects. Some people state that moths are even more colorful than butterflies. However, outdoor moths do tend to become problematic when they invade homes and gardens. They can destroy trees (i.e. the Gypsy moth, which can devour a hardwood tree) and plants, especially in their larval form. If left untreated for a long enough period of time, moth/larvae can eventually overcome and consume an entire garden or even parts of a forest. Consequently, it is essential to halt moth infestations before they reach this critical, almost irreversible point. In order to control moth problems, Acepestcontrolproducts provides numerous different mechanical and chemical products. By allowing the homeowner to choose between these two methods, he or she will be able to find the optimal product for his or her specific situation.

Outdoor Moth Behavior : Tend to only get problematic in unusually...

Outdoor moths tend to only get problematic in unusually large numbers. Otherwise, they are typically less troublesome than most indoor moths, some of which will chew through clothes and carpets. Moths that live outdoors usually are classified as pests because they are attracted to light and will therefore swarm around, creating a very unsightly mess. Most outdoor moths prefer to emerge at night to scour for food. Usually, more than the moths themselves, their larvae are where the real problem lies. In specific, the Gypsy moth (a common type of outdoor moth found throughout the U.S., although more common) has undeniably destructive larvae. This species as a whole is the biggest threat to hardwood trees. The larvae, in order to protect themselves, bore into hardwood trees, crippling the trees’ structure. In addition to the larvae, adult Gypsy moths attack tree foliage, capable of completely stripping a tree of its leaves.

How to Get Rid of Outdoor Moths

Because outdoor moths are found, well, outdoors, their pest control method will be different from that of indoor moths’. With most flying insects in general, light traps are efficient in killing and controlling insect populations. The only downside to a light trap is that it requires an electrical outlet to work, meaning that the trap will most likely be near the home when it should be about 30 feet away. However, if one can also choose to simply use an extension cable to fix this issue. Since light traps usually contain glue traps as well, they will act as a clean, non-chemical based means of effectively killing outdoor moths.

In terms of chemical treatments, Acepestcontrolproducts offers numerous different products. The wettable powders can be applied to cracks and crevices outdoors and along the house’s perimeters. The liquid insecticides can be applied along walls and on plants specified by the product label. We also supply some dust products for outdoor moth control, although you only want to place it in areas where it has a low to no chance of drifting off with the wind; inhaling a dust product is dangerous and hazardous to the health of living organisms. Unlike the light traps, these products will kill moths that pass through or land on the pesticides.

My mother has an apartment (on the 9th floor) in Hong Kong and she found termites. I believe they are drywood termites and she is looking for a spray to prevent the termites from developing again. I wonder if you can recommend a strong product and easy to apply - just spraying at the spot will be great. I also wonder if you shipped directly to Hong Kong. Thanks for your help.
A.   Premise Foam seems like the product you are looking for! However, we are unable to ship the product to Hong Kong due to strict regulations on international shipping.
