You may seem to think of the moth as a harmless cousin to the butterfly, but you could be subject to an infestation of moths in your home that can be any homeowner's worst nightmare. There are two kinds of moths that infest the home, and conveniently, they are named after household terms: Clothing Moths and Pantry Moths.
Clothing Moths, as you may guess, love anything made of cloth or fabric. Clothing Moths will lay eggs on several types of fabric that come from an animal or plant such as fur, cotton, wool, felt, feathers, silk, and hair. They can also grow larvae in nearby oils depending on whether the moth infestation gets to a more severe level. When eggs hatch on the fabric, the larvae will eat holes through the fabric, damaging clothes, hats, and even carpeting. It is also possible for larvae to reproduce in drapes, upholstery, and bedding.
