How many moth species are there actually? How does the combatting with natural enemies work? What happens to the ichneumon wasps after the moths have been eliminated? Question upon question. But you are not alone. The most frequently asked questions from our customers are summarized here.
Worldwide there are more than 2,000 moth species. In Europe round about 200 and in the German-speaking regions round about 80.
In Middle-Europe mainly the house moth, the flour moth and the clothes moths can be found.
House moths preferably hunt for grain, cereals, legumes, nuts, coffee, cocoa powder and dried fruit. Flour moths infest flour, legumes and nuts.
No, the pests can even enter through tiny cracks in the wood.
No, because if a part of the moth population is still in a different part of the room, they can easily invade the pantry again.
No, because most of the native species can bite through tin plastic foil.
Yes, for most moth species screw threads are not a problem at all.
Clothes moths preferably nest in clothes and furniture that are made of hair-like materials - such as wool, felt or furs, upholstered furniture or carpets. Synthetic textiles and cotton wool on the other hand are not attacked by cloths moths.
In their larvae stage. That is why when combatting moths successfully the focus is primarily against the larvae.
Moths spoil groceries with their feces and with leftover cocoons. These offer other pests such as mites and fungi a food resource and are therefore a potential source of germs. The contact with food and textiles that are spoilt by moth infestation can cause allergic reactions in humans and pets. Further, the consumption of spoilt food can lead to intestinal diseases.
Very quickly. Hatched moths may only have a lifespan of a few weeks, but the breed continuously during this time.
Moths can crawl as well as fly.
The moths of most species can travel up to 400 meters in their short lifespan of max. two weeks.
Because the pest spread very fast and also because they are able to hide in the tiniest cracks, a successful moth combat must be fast as well as extensive.
No, because moths can even hide in the tiniest cracks and mostly stay unnoticed by the human eye.
No, because this method is to slow, to unsafe and starts at the wrong place.
Because it is the only natural method to combat moths and because it is the safest way to completely get rid of a moth population.
No, trichogramma (ichneumon wasps) are completely harmless for humans.
About three to six weeks.
As soon as the moth population is destroyed the trichogramma (ichneumon wasps) die because they have no food source any more.
