About Moths

Several moths are seen as pest because their larvae eat fabric such as clothes and blankets made from natural fibers such as wool or silk. They are less likely to eat mixed materials containing artificial fibers. There are some reports that they can be repelled by the scent of wood from juniper and cedar, by lavender, or by other natural oils. However, many consider this unlikely to prevent infestation. The chemical Naphthalene (which is the chemical used in mothballs) is considered more effective, but there are concerns over its effects on the health of human beings.

By the time you see moths in your home, it usually means that they have already found something they like to eat. Fortunately, their feeding choices are rather limited and you can usually find where they are feeding rather quickly.

Moths that are found in a home are generally one of two basic kinds; either a food eating moth or a fabric eating moth. A food eating moth, which is the most common, will most likely be found in your pantry. A fabric eating moth will most likely be found in your closet.
