You may have noticed small moths or gnats hanging around your kitchen. Before you jump to any conclusions, it is important to rule out some other possibilities. Pantry flies are commonly mistaken for moths. The moths that cause the greatest destruction to your clothing are grey in color and have three dark spots on their wings. These types of moths are rarely seen in the light of day. They thrive in tight, dark, and undisturbed spaces, such as closets, attics, and basements.
Flying moths do not actually cause damage to your clothing. Rather, they lay eggs in your woolen clothes, which hatch into wool-consuming larvae. If you’ve found small holes in your wool clothing or bare patches on your rug, larvae are most likely present and you will need to enlist the help of a professional mothproofing company.
