There are 2 kinds of clothes moths which are: The Case Bearing Clothes Moth and the Common Clothes Moth.
Both Species evolved in a bird or animal nest and only eat fibres such as wool, fur and feather and they are most likely to go for clothes and carpets within a dark place where they are undisturbed.
The clothes moth will hide in dark areas such as collars and cuffs and they also thrive on humid conditions. Sometimes the larvae of these pests can be quite active and could be seen crawling on clothes or on the floor. But besides feeding on clothes, rugs and carpets and household furniture the clothes moth will also feed on fur, stored wool and other similar articles, they also feed on pollen, hair, feathers and dead insects.
The average clothes moth has a wingspan of approximately ½ inch, however the male is a little less, and their body is about ¼ inch long with a golden yellow sheen. Their eggs are oval and an ivory colour and the larvae is a shinny creamy whitish colour with a brown head.
Signs For Clothes Moths:
The signs of clothes moths will present themselves as either damage to clothing, the eggs, larvae or adult moths themselves, or both.
Clothing damage will most frequently occur in knitwear (commonly wool, cashmere, alpaca or angora), silk or leather garments. The damage will present itself as irregular ‘holes’ in clothing and the size of the holes will depend on how long moth larvae have been left undisturbed to eat the protein based fibres and whether there are any stains or moisture (e.g. residue from perspiration) present on the garments. Clothing moth damage can occur in drawers, wardrobes and cupboards – moths are indiscriminate.
