Can Permethrin SFR be used to kill rug moths, their eggs and larvae?

Answer:

Permethrin SFR 36.8% is not labeled to treat any type of carpet moth and will not kill any eggs.  You may read our How to Get Rid of Clothes Moths Article for identification and treatment tips. We would also recommend consulting with the local cooperative extension office in your county for a positive ID.

In order to treat successfully for Clothes Moths, something like the ProPest Clothes Moth Traps would need to be used with a crack and crevice insectide like Suspend SC or aerosol like Cy-Kick CS. Suspend SC can also be used for Carpet Beetle control and is applied the same way, as a crack and crevice spray. Please read our How to Get Rid of Clothes Moths for full details on products and treament applications.
