SLA is ideal for treating clothing and carpets from moths and other insecticides, because it is able to kill not only adult stage moths, but the larvae as well. By killing off the larvae, the moths life cycle is cut off at the first stage.
Steps for killing/eradicating clothes moths
Remove clothes from closet.
Spray SLA moth spray throughout the closet making sure to hit all the cracks and crevices (this makes sure you get the larvae).
Close closet for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Open closet doors and let air out. Open windows in the room to allow for proper ventilation before reentry into the room.
Treat infested clothes: All infested clothes should either be sprayed down with SLA, or dry cleaned/washed. (Note: SLA is non-staining on most fabrics, test in an inconspicuous area first.)
Place clothes back in closet and set up some clothes moth traps to catch any lingering moths.
Is SLA safe to use around Pets and Kids? Yes, SLA's directions for use state to avoid contamination of feed and foodstuffs. Remove pets and birds, and cover fish aquariums before spraying. Vacate room after treatment and ventilate before reoccupying. Do not allow children or pets to contact treated areas until surfaces are dry.
