Approximately 1.5 million homes across the UK suffer from moth infestations! Species range in size from 2 mm to 300 mm across. Adult moths do no damage. It is the larvae which hatch from the sticky eggs that eat wool, hair, fur or feathers – with a preference for blankets, wool carpets, wool garments or upholstery.
