Question
We have BOTH termites and wool moths here in St Petersburg Florida.  Will tenting for the termites also kill the moths?  Is there anything I can do to increase 'moth kill'? during the tenting.

Answer
Charlene,

Tenting and fumigation for structural pests should kill all insects in the structure including clothes moths. See http://www.livingwithbugs.com/fumigation.html for general information about this method for treating structural pests.
