What keeps miller moths away? There are many oils that repel bugs, and cedarwood, lavender, peppermint, clove, and eucalyptus are specifically known to repel moths.
Why do I have Miller’s in my house? Small cracks in the doorways of homes, garages, and cars make perfect hiding spots. Often moths may be found clustered together in particularly favorable sites. Since cracks often continue into the living space of a home (or a garage, car, etc.) a ‘wrong’ turn may lead them indoors.
How do I get rid of moths quickly? Use hot water and high heat in the dryer, if possible. For clothes that can’t be washed or dried hot, put wet clothes in the freezer for a day to kill larvae and eggs. Use vinegar to help. Wash and scrub any areas you found larvae or eggs with a vinegar and water solution.
How long do miller moths last? Typically, peak miller moth flights may last five to six weeks, generally starting the last week of May or early June. Often within this period they may be at peak numbers as nuisance problems for about two to three weeks.
