Moth Control London
Tired of moths destroying your clothes, furniture, and food? Toxic Respond is a London based pest control company that provides professional and effective moth control services at affordable rates. Using our safe, reliable, and industry-approved moth extermination methods will ensure that there will not be a single little intruder left around. Depending on the level of moth infestation, we can guarantee total eradication after one or two treatments.
Moths are a common menace found in many homes across London. They could easily destroy all kinds of upholstery, clothing, and rugs. Storing food out in the open is not a good idea, as pantry moths are capable of infesting your kitchen faster than you might think. Trying to deal with such a situation on our own is borderline impossible, but our proven moth control experts will get the job done.
Why Do You Need Moth Treatment?
Moths are hard to get rid off and they can ruin plenty of your belongings, including clothing, textiles, curtains, carpets, and even furniture upholstery.
Except for the closets and the wardrobes, moths can also reside in your kitchen. They will feed on dried and packaged goods, including flour, grains, dried fruit, etc. You can see signs of them in jars and boxes, as well as pre-contaminated packaged foods you have brought home.
Given the pace moths multiply at, there is one fundamental rule to follow when you notice the first signs of an infestation in your property. Just give a call to your pest control company immediately before a minor problem turns into a disaster.
We have been dealing with pests all over London, and we are good at what we do. Years of experience in the trade has helped us create a simple and effective set of methods guaranteed to achieve great results.
After the initial survey, our trained moth exterminators will tackle the task of fully removing the moths from your home or office. Optional aftercare services are available as well.

Why You Should Book Our Moth Control Service
Moths are silent, and as such, locating them can be a challenge. Our Specialists will make sure to carry a thorough inspection to discover all of the nests and places where the moths are in the property.
Our team of professionals will use the best available products and equipment to eradicate the moths completely.
After the treatment, our clients can also book a visit for assessment. This way, you will know that the work has been done right.
In order to prevent the moths from infesting your property again, you will need some expert advice. Our Specialists will provide you with detailed information about that and the cause of your problem.
Professional Moth Control Methods
Making sure moths are entirely eradicated is what we do. The proper means of moth control treatment include repellents placed strategically around the infested premises, but steam or fumigation is what eradicates moths. There are specific steps about the full moth extermination process that you will be briefed on after the initial inspection.
There are several methods used by Toxic Respond that can help you remedy your moth problem without causing you any additional frustration.
Heat/ Steam Treatment
One way to get rid of moths is to use heat treatment. Our steam method exterminates all moth larvae and eggs in direct contact with powerful 180°C steam, and it’s safe for your furnishings and furniture.
If you have more delicate items or clothing infested, we can perform light steam treatment instead of applying high heat.
Fumigation/ ULV Cold Fogging
At Toxic Respond, we use insecticides officially confirmed to be perfectly safe for humans and pets. They don’t cause any side effects, so your health will not be put at risk in any way.
Insecticides will instantly remove the adult moths from your home, but their eggs and larvae are more stubborn. To increase the efficiency of the treatment, you may need to undergo more than one procedure to make sure everything is removed.
Upon the initial on-site inspection, our experts will give you personalized advice on treating the infestation in the most effective way possible.
Are domestic moth control products effective?
If you are dealing with a moth infestation in your home you may not see any results by using non-professional and user-class domestic products. They prove to be not merely ineffective compared to heat treatment and other professional chemical treatments but also potentially dangerous for the residents and pets.
What are the Signs of a Moth Infestation?
There are over 2,500 types of moths in the UK. Still, they can be categorised into three groups only based on their favourite food – clothes, carpets, and other kitchen-stored foods.
Of course, the easiest way to detect any type of moth infestation is to see flying or crawling moths around your house. But, in addition, you should keep your eyes open for some larvae, maggots, and silken cocoons.
If you don’t see the pests themselves, you can start noticing the damage they’ve managed to do so far. For example, suppose you discover tiny holes in your clothes or other household fabrics. In that case, you are most probably having a moth infestation.
Either way, you should initiate the moth removal process as soon as possible after becoming suspicious.
Can You Prevent a Moth Problem?
There is not a single miracle solution for sealing your property against moths. They can find their own way in, but they can also be brought along – with infested foods, improperly cleaned second-hand garments, etc.
Some prevention tips to consider may include:
- Keep household fabrics clean – it is crucial to clean all of your soft furnishings regularly and carefully. Especially if you notice some eggs or larvae on them. Keep your rugs, bedclothes, blankets, and towels fresh and washed.
- Use a vacuum cleaner often – when you vacuum regularly, you will remove the existing larvae and eggs from your home. This is very convenient for surfaces like carpets, pillows, and curtains. Make sure to clean the bag or container when you finish.
- Check the storage – we all have some additional clothing in the storage. The best practice is to dry-clean them regularly, from time to time. Even better if you can store them in airtight containers and not in suitcases.
- Ventilate – most of the moths prefer moisture, so they are looking for damp rooms. If you want to remove them from your home, provide the rooms with fresh air and make sure to reduce the moisture in your closet.
White-shouldered moths are, unfortunately, a common problem that occurs in most London homes. In such cases, there is nothing better to do than apply spray or fumigation treatment. As these critters don’t feed, their larvae must be found and completely eradicated. All carpeted surfaces and upholstered pieces of furniture need to be sprayed for achieving the ultimate result.
Adult clothes moths are harmless, and they cause no damage at all, as they feed on flower nectar. Their larvae, on the other hand, can destroy all kinds of clothing and upholstery, which is why they need to be removed. Professional spraying is what gets the job done.
Brown House Moths
Brown house moths are a common threat to Londoners. They are easily recognisable. An adult moth measures at up to 14mm of length and has a brown body with three or four darker spots. Brown house moth larvae prefer fabrics of animal origins, such as wool and fur. They can destroy most pieces of clothing and textile within their reach.

What clients are saying
Very professional guys, very responsive. I sent my inquiry at night and they responded 5 minutes later, which was very surprising but in a good way. I was worried about that I have bed bugs, because I was getting bitten, and these guys found that wasn’t the case. They found fleas on my curtains and for 3 weeks no new bites so far, so I’m very happy with the service. I would recommend them to anyone for sure
After suffering with bed bugs last Oct living in a flat …my anxiety is terrible now and so when I see my son had some bits my head was all over the place I rang toxic respond and they immediately sent some one out & they was professional and so so thorough we had no bugs and they reassured me enough I may get some sleep after a week of none! 🙂 They understood it’s not just bugs it’s people’s mental health & I feel I would definitely recommend and use again x thanks guys
Toxic Respond was so responsive and I’m so happy with their services. I used their services twice and I will use them again if I need pest control in the future. They are so efficient, sending reports with photos and videos, so I knew what they did in my house and what I paid for. I would recommend this company to everyone
This company is amazing. It was such a huge relief to discover them after a dreadful experience with a larger company who were 3 times as expensive for a useless service. Toxic Respond properly sorted out a hideous moth infestation. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
