MOTHS eating clothes

Actually it’s not the moths that cause damage, but the larvae that hatch from their eggs. Larvae look like small white caterpillars. They eat any natural fibres, including wool and silk.

To kill them, wash all your clothes at the highest-advised temperature. Put any “dry-clean only” items into plastic bag and leave in the freezer overnight.

In future, store items in sealed pasltic bags – air them regularly.

Try to keep the inside of your wardrobe dust-free and use natural repellents such as lavender oil or cedar wood.
