Understanding Fabric Pests

  1. Webbing Clothes Moth: The webbing clothes moth is the most common fabric moth found worldwide and in the United States.   These moths damage fibers including wool, fur, and hair, and tend to flourish in areas with high humidity.
  2. Casemaking Clothes Moth:  The casemaking clothes moth is less frequently encountered than the webbing clothes moth.  It is more commonly found in the southern United States than in the north.  The luxuries of modern homes have reduced the opportunities for these pests to complete their life cycle
  3. Carpet Beetles: Carpet beetle larvae feed on items such as wool, felt, fur, silk, and leather.   Damage found on rugs and carpeting are more commonly found around the edges or underneath.
