Getting rid of clothing moths.
They are referred to as clothing moths, clothes moths, case making clothing moths, fabric moths, web making clothing moths, closet moths, and carpet moths. The last name simply because carpets and rugs, or their padding, used to be made out of wool.
They are what we think of when we see damage to that expensive sweater, coat, or skirt we love.
However, in the Northwest, 99% of people with damaged clothing don't have clothing moths, they have Carpet Beetles. In fact, if you have moths in your home and damage to your clothes, 95% of the time you have two pest problems - carpet beetles and pest moths - just not clothing moths. We get about 1 call per year that turns out to actually involve clothing moths.
(NOTE: If you do have clothing moths we would be happy to take care of them - the treatment for carpet beetles and clothing moths is the same. We would also be happy to inspect and identify your pests for you!)
Carpet Beetles are extremely common in our area.
Most people who have damage to feathers, leather, wool, or items made from hair, such as wool carpets, horse hair blankets, wool sweaters or coats, etc... have Carpet Beetles.
Clothing Moths can be very damaging, they can be imported but do not typically survive in our area.
