Webbing Clothes Moth


Characteristics

  • The caterpillars feed on natural clothing, especially wool
  • These moths are usually much smaller than food infesting moths
  • Finding dead moths in a closet is a sure sign that your clothes are at risk

Webbing clothes moths are an extremely destructive pest. The adult moths do not actually pose any threat but females enter closets to lay their eggs on the caterpillars favorite foods. This includes any natural fibers such as silk, cotton, and furs, but their most common target is wool. The adults are the most common signs of these pests and clothes should be checked on a regular basis.

Proper maintenance can prevent most moth infestations. Regular cleaning of clothes and frequent checks will keep these moths from damaging your clothes. If you notice signs of these pests, please call a pest control professional to hear about your options.


I just moved to the area and called Horizons for a quote. The office staff were very helpful in assessing my needs and getting me set up with an appointment. Horizons Professional Pest Control sent a technician the same day to take care of my problem. My technician, Chad, was very knowledgable and took so much time talking to me about what I needed and telling me how he was going to address those needs. So happy with my choice.
