  • I would be blocking the vents and the under door areas until the problem (hopefully) passes. This would freak me out

  • try a sock/snake to stop them coming in under the doors

  • I would probably use a big zapper!

  • Yes a bug zapper would be good, I have the same problem.

  • there are some good comments here

  • lights that repel months sound great.

  • I might get a bug zapper as we have the same problem

  • just replace your lights. you can get these bulbs that are a slightly different colour. bugs don’t get attracted to them. you wont notice a difference in the light and the bugs will stay away. ask at Bunning’s they should have them.

  • Could you try a bg zapper, as previously mentioned?

  • Looking at getting a bug zapper this year

  • i would get a bug zapper

  • Get a bug zapper and try to limit the lighting, maybe just use a couple of dim lamps if you can.

  • You could try getting a outdoor ‘Bug Zapper’ from bunnings or Masters (they have solar powered ones as well as chorded ones) to try and attract the moths away from the house.

  • also have the same problem

  • Same problem here, and it’s tiny ones as well that we get.
