Clothing Moths

Clothing moths, also known as textile moths, are small, winged insects that are members of the Tineidae family. These moths are considered pests because their larvae feed on natural fibers such as wool, silk, and cashmere, causing damage to clothing, carpets, and other household items made from these materials.

Clothing moths are generally a pale, golden color, and have narrow wings that are fringed with long hairs. They are about 1/2 to 3/4 inch in length and are usually found in dark, quiet areas of the home, such as closets, drawers, and storage areas.

The larvae of clothing moths are cream-colored caterpillars that are about 1/2 inch long. They are often responsible for the damage to clothing and other textiles, as they feed on these materials, leaving behind small holes and other signs of damage.

Preventing infestations of clothing moths involves taking steps to keep clothing and other textiles clean, dry, and well-ventilated. It may also involve using moth repellents, such as cedar chips or mothballs, and regular inspections of closets and storage areas to check for signs of infestation.
