Common Clothes Moth (Tineolabisselliella)

The Common Clothes Moth is an indoor insect common throughout Britain and most of the world, with the exception of the tropics. Reasonably cold-hardy and associated with many natural products of animal origin, especially woven fibres, fur and feather products and fertilisers. Despite these food preferences, this species is not a frequent inhabitant of birds’ nests.

Moth Removal

Good hygiene is essential and the use of a vacuum cleaner to remove the larvae and their cases will greatly assist control measures. Photo-stable pyrethroids can be used to control larvae not removed by vacuuming. If there are valuable fabrics at risk then the use of pheromone traps can detect the early presence of adults.
