The damage clothes moths cause. Do you recognise any of these ‘symptoms’?

  • Holes in a favourite jumper. This is in fact the larvae, rather than the moths, that feed on clothes leaving small holes in their wake.
  • Silvery-looking silken webs across the surface of cloth based furniture and soft furnishings. This is what forms the larvae case and because of this, clothes moths are also known as webbing moths.
  • The larvae will feed on any material containing the animal protein Keratin; hence they prefer expensive wool, silk, cashmere, feathers or fur rather than cheaper man-made fabrics. They will also eat cotton and other natural fibres, but will only go for synthetics if heavily stained with perspiration or food.

What does a clothes moth look like?

  • They’re tiny. 5mm – 7mm in length, brownish in colour with a golden or silver sheen.  The eggs are whitish and the larvae are opaque white with brown heads.
  • They rarely fly into lights, preferring complete darkness such as a closet or storage chest. The females move by running or hopping. If you see one flying it’s probably a male.
  • The larvae take around 6 weeks to develop. During this time they feed on fabric.

Something important to be aware of…

Dyno-Pest clothes moth experts will locate the source of your infestation and use a number of treatments to prevent a recurrence. If the source is not located and the eggs and larvae not dealt with, the visible moths may be removed, but the infestation will remain. Trust the expert clothes’ moth exterminators.
