Moths are a common pest in homes. Unlike many types of other household pest, they are not a particular danger, they are not a health risk and they do not bite people, however they do like to eat a protein called keratin which is found in several naturally occurring materials, in particular wools, cottons and silks.
As a result any household items made up of these items are a target. Moths are notorious for eating/destroying clothes, soft furnishings, fabrics and carpets. Having a moth infestation in your home can become quite an expensive problem if not dealt with in the early stages.
Other indicators of a moth infestation include the appearance of maggot larvae and silk cocoons.
Out of all the moth species, when it comes to destroying your property, the main culprits are the Common Clothes Moth, Case Bearing Clothes Moth, Brown House Moth and White Shouldered House Moth. These are the 4 main species of house moth found in the UK.
Preventing moths from entering your home is very difficult as their main means of entry is simply to fly in through an open window. Typically at night on a warm summer's evening, it's possible every window in your house will be open.
Once inside, moths will tend to seek out dark and undisturbed areas, such as inside cupboards and wardrobes and then lay their eggs in your clothing.
As a preventative measure, we would suggest that any clothes which are to be stored away for long periods of time, be done so in sealed plastic containers, and all soft furnishings such as carpets be regularly vacuumed.
