Moth Damage – Edinburgh City Centre
Have you got a wool carpet in your home?
You probably love the look and feel of it and that’s why you have it, but it’s not only you that loves wool, the Case Bearing Clothes Moth and the Common Clothes Moth both do too.
Moths in the home are often associated with damaging clothes but they can be a real problem where there are wool carpets and many homes in Edinburgh City have succumbed to damage from them. It’s actually the moth larvae that eats the fibres and these then hatch into the moth. However, it’s not just wool that they like, it is in fact any natural fibre that can be found in your home.
EdinburghClean.co.uk recently worked in a home in Edinburgh where the carpet was damaged. As the lighter image shows, the moth larvae had eaten the carpet pile down to the base, and there were obvious bald patches as a result. Although not initially obvious from the picture, the carpet had a number of moths in it. They can be difficult to see because they assume the colour of the fabric that they are eating and so are camouflaged.
