Clothes Moth (Identification and control in your home)

The term "clothes moth" is associated with the webbing clothes moth, casemaking clothes moth, and carpet moth. Generally, clothes moths are smaller in size compared to their relatives. While most moths can be seen flying around lights at night, clothes moths prefer the dark. They can usually be found in closet, attics and other dark areas. Many people believe the clothes moths itself are the ones who devour the fabrics but they are poorly mistaken. Adult clothes moths are unable to feed. Their larvae are the source of the fabric damages. Some of their favorite "meals" around the house are clothing, carpets, upholstery fabrics, blankets, wool products and silk products. Clothes moth larvae are also known to damage other products such as linen, synthetic fibers, cotton and paper. In addition, they especially like to feed on fabrics that have been stained with food, beverages, body oils, sweat, or even urine. They are attracted to these stains for a reason. Clothes moth larvae cannot survive eating "clean" wool because they require nourishment found in body oils.

How to Get Rid of Clothes Moths

Holes on clothing are the obvious signs of a clothes moth infestation. Preventative measures should always be practiced. Once a hole is made the damage is done and may not be repairable. These prevention methods include sanitation and insecticide measures. The process of sanitation includes vacuuming, airing, dusting and even dry cleaning (when need be).

Clothes Moth Treatments

Spray pesticides, for instance Demand CS, Suspend SC and Perma Dust are great for spot treatments. Some insecticides require dilution with water and are applied using a hand sprayer. Areas of major infestation should be concentrated upon. Most exterminators prefer applying a residual insecticide (such as Suspend SC) to all suitable areas and then follow up with a non residual insecticide (such as CB 80 Extra) for absolute control. This dual method approach is especially appropriate when damages are extensive. It is recommended to reapply treatments as needed to assure the total clothes moth control.

Clothes Moth Traps

Trapping is one of the most common ways to control a clothes moth infestation, not to mention one of the easiest ways. Pheromone traps are available and work great against clothes moths. Pheromone traps are recommended for any size clothes moth infestation. Simply place the trap(s) in a closet and any other areas where clothes and fabrics are stored. Not only does trapping allow you to detect the presence of an infestation but also provides great control.

Q. What is a version of infestation of clothes moths. Is it just the presence of moths in the house or is it a great and considerable amount of moth mostly all over the house?
I may see maybe one or two moths a day on an average of 2 or 3 times in a week for maybe two weeks. I kill the ones I see. Two weeks later I'll see some more in that same exact pattern I just explained. This has been going on since August. Up until now I have not seen any places that show their damage. Is that an infestation? I came in tonight and saw one on my bedroom wall. I sprayed it with raid insecticide. It fell behind the bed. I moved the bed to see if I killed it I didn't see it. I did see one at the foot of my bed on the box spring. I killed it. While using a flashlight and just scrolling under my bed looking for it, I noticed the netting on my box spring has a snagged hole in it the size of a small lemon. In Sept. I lifted up my bed to see if the source was there and the netting had not been touched. No one or nothing has been under my bed to make a snag. During the months of Sept. & Oct. I was experiencing maggot forms crawling on the walls in my bedroom. I killed those. Maybe about 10 or 15 in that time span. I did see one in Nov. I killed it. I haven't seen any since. I have no one to help me lift up my bed. It is 3:15am Chicago time. I don't feel comfortable sleeping in my bed for imagining maybe a maggot crawling on me. Would this be called an infestation?
A.   If you are seeing the larva stage of the clothes moths and you are killing them at the rate described, unfortunately, it sounds like a pretty bad infestation. We are unable to identify the pest properly though and so we won't be able to tell you if it is a clothes moth infestation. Clothes moths are usually attracted to fabrics that are animal based like wool, furs, or even feathered materials. You may need to have a professional go and inspect your home so you can correctly identify the pest. Once the pest is identified, we will surely be able to help you get rid of them. If you have any other questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us again.

Q. moth infestation, carpets and clothes
I have had a moth problem for about 4 years now. It started in my last apartment for unknown reasons, and has apparently followed me to my new place. I discovered a few days ago that they have completely infested some rolled-up Tibetan rugs, and I am crushed. We have some pet cats in our place, so I need to make sure that whatever I use is pet-safe. I saw your comments about 565 Plus XLO, and I was also thinking of using pheromone straps for my clothing (which they also love *sob*). I really want to break the cycle, it's been too many years and thousands of dollars of things ruined. Please help!
A.   We recommend using the pheromone traps in places where you see the most damage by the moths. Do you happen to know which kind of moths you are infested with? The 565 Plus XLO is effective against various types of clothes moths and can be used to spray surfaces where they congregate.

Q. Clothes moths
how to kill moths in clothes
A.   Clothes moths are generally taken care of in a variety of steps. The first will require you to launder all clothes and upholstery that are stored in isolated areas of infestation. This will help you to get rid of the larvae that feed on the upholstery or clothing. We also recommend using insecticides like 565 Plus XLO in the corners and baseboards. This will require you to remove any items like clothes so that you do not get any insecticide on them. You can also use pheromone based traps for clothes moths. Only 1-2 is required per floor so that you do not over saturate the area with pheromones. Oversaturation of pheromones will deter moths from traps and the moths will not be able to locate the source of the pheromone, which are the traps, making them ineffective.

Q. I see the holes on my clothes in my dresser drawers but not moth. What can i do?
A.   Perhaps the holes are from laundering or are damages from being worn down. If there is no adult moth that is identified, you may also be having issues with larvae and a thorough inspection will be required. Before any insecticide is applied, we must insist that you identify the source of the problem first. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. How can I kill clothes moth larvae in my clothing?
I have picked out the larvae and am washing my washable clothing and will home dry clean my woolens. Then I want to spray all of these items with a killing insecticide and put in plastic vacuum bags. The clothes are not ruined, yet,but I want to be sure to kill what is already on them. There is a lot of information about prevention, but very little about killing the larvae. What chemical is best for this and is there a product that actually claims to kill moths? I can't find one.
A.   There are a variety of products that will kill moths. Unfortunately, we do not have products that you can apply directly onto clothes. You can use the Nuvan ProStrips inside airtight sealed bags, however, the strips must be enclosed in the bag with the items for two weeks. All clothes must be laundered after they are removed from the bags. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. Clothing moths eating yarn!
Hi, I am a knitter and my yarn and woolens are being eaten when they are laying out in the house (everything is fine in my bins and cedar chest). I need to treat the open areas of our house, a wardrobe, a dresser, and a closet under the stairwell. I'm thinking the pheremone traps for the large spaces, but am confused about what to use for the wardrobe and dresser - they are in our room. I can empty them and wash everything, but am not sure what the best options are for controlling them.
A.   You can use a pheromone trap in the large open space. In the wardrobe and dresser, we recommend using a product called 565 Plus XLO. After the target areas are emptied, you can spray this aerosol spray in all corners, cracks, and crevices. Only replace the items back into the treated areas after the treatment has completely dried. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. When a closet have full of clothes and is full infested with clothe moths doyou recommend to spray all clothes or emty closetthe
A.   We do not carry any products that you can use to spray directly onto the clothes for a clothe moth infestation. We recommend laundering the clothes in hot water wash and hot temperature dry. After laundering the clothes, we recommend treating the empty closet. Use a spray to treat all along the corners of the bottom of the closet as well as along the corners of the shelves. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Customers Testimonials
I am a DIY supporter. I don't employ exterminators to take care of my pest problems. I would like to o it myself. So, when my cricket problem got out of control I decided to do something. As per a friend's recommendation I bought 1 pint of Talstar Pro for 28.40. It is a great pesticide. The pests died after I used it on them. It worked really great and the residual effect stays up to 3 months. I can recommend it to anyone.
