Moths are a serious pest. The caterpillar (larva) of this moth takes its nourishment from clothing such as woollens, angora, cashmere and furs. The damage they do from feeding can be severe. The larvae are difficult to detect as they shun the light, so you may only find that you have an infestation when you find your damaged clothes or carpets.
Houses with attic spaces may find they have a significant problem because moths can live in the attic undisturbed for long periods of time and can cause significant damage during their life cycle. It can be quite upsetting to find items which may be of value to you with moth damage. You need to act fast and treat a moth infestation quickly.
If you think you may have a problem with moths you should contact one of surveyors who will arrange for a free survey and advise you of the recommended treatment.
