Clothing moths, a species of fungus moth, are problem pests mainly because of the destruction they cause. In their larval stage, they derive their nourishment from clothing fibers, and their fiber of choice is wool, though they also feed off of other natural fibers. Like most moths, clothing moths may also feed off of produce in your home. Clothing moths are known to find their way into spaces such as closets, where there is an abundance of nourishment for their young. Mature moths attach their eggs to clothing with a glue-like substance that is difficult to remove. Once the egg has hatched, the emergent caterpillars will immediately begin looking for food. Though it’s possible for these caterpillars to obtain the required amount of food to spin their cocoons within two months, if they are not able to do so in that timeframe, they may feed on and off for a very long time. Two months after these cocoons have been spun, adult moths emerge ready to mate and start the process over again.
There are a number of simple and ecologically safe ways in which a clothing moth problem can be treated: moth traps, vacuuming, heat treatment, and dry cleaning are among them. Besides chemical treatment of your clothing, there are also alternatives to mothballs, which usually contain carcinogenic chemicals and are extremely flammable. One option is to use camphor, a natural alternative to mothballs. Similarly, Eastern red cedar and lavender may ward off fabric moths. However your moth problem manifests itself, it’s important to know that Greenleaf Pest Control has at its disposal a wide-ranging arsenal of pest control techniques that are ecologically friendly and oriented towards ensuring that your commercial or residential space remains as free as possible from toxic chemicals.
