Cluster Fly (Pollenia rudis)
Cluster flies can be very troublesome in winter months, particularly with warmer winters, these flies are now becoming active through the winter, not just autumn and spring. Cluster flies breed in fields in the summer and hibernate underwall cladding and in roof voids in the winter

Clothes Moth (Tineola bisselliella)
The common Clothes Moth is very destructive. Most of the damage to clothing occurs in dark areas. The Clothes Moth will feed on; clothes, carpets, rugs, and upholstered furniture.
Moth Pest Control Measure: All cracks and crevices in infested areas should be treated with a residual insecticide. A dusting of dry powder insecticide under carpet edges, should be considered.
Varied Carpet Beetle (Anthrenus verbasci)
Adult beetles are 2-4mm in length, round in shape, the colour varies but usually the body is yellow, black and white. They usually breed once a year but in warmer climates or mild temeratures this can be twice. The female can lay up to 100 eggs which hatch after 2-4 weeks. The larvae are slightly bigger at 4-6mm in length. Nicknamed ‘Wooly Bears’ because of the hairs protruding from their bodies. The larvae will cause damage by chewing on fibres in carpets and rugs, especially wool based items.
Carpet Beetle Pest Control Measure: Insecticides can be used to treat infested premises and protect them from re infestation by spraying carpeted areas.
