Clothes moth

Slightly larger than the Case-bearing moth, adults can reach up to 7mm. The moths are a light, shiny gold colour, with a tuft of reddish hairs on the head.

Similar to Case-Bearing Clothes Moth.

Treatment is similar for all the textile moths. Examine closets and stored goods for larvae cases, moths, and damage to locate the source of infestation before treatment. Once the source has been identified treat/destroy as necessary. A residual insecticide can then be applied to wall/floor and ceiling/ wall junctions and around carpet edges, back of empty wardrobes etc. If the infestation is present in a loft or roof space then the area can also be treated with a residual insecticide and/or a space treatment (ULV, smoke etc).
