Fabric pests such as clothes moths, although not particularly dangerous, can sometimes cause irreparable damage to personal belongings. These moths are able to digest animal hairs and, therefore, feed on almost any item made of natural fibers, particularly wool and cashmere.
Clothes moths tend to stay confined near clothing, which makes them easier to control.
Your Terminix service professional can rid your home of these pests, but there are a few steps you can take to protect your clothing until your fabric pest problem can be controlled:
Do not store boxes of clothes in the attic, garage or basement, if possible.
If clothing must be stored in boxes, thoroughly clean the boxes before storage and seal all corners and openings with tape.
Prior to storage, clean woolen and natural fiber clothing according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
In closets, store natural fiber clothing items by covering them with individual plastic covers.
Consider storing clothing in large zippered plastic units.
Use mothballs to help deter fabric pests, but be aware that they may leave an odor that could require dry cleaning.
