What do Moths look like?
In general, moths have two wings that are covered in scales and large eyes. They can vary in appearance and size. Some moths are beautiful in color, while others are plain brown and gray.
Behavior & Habits:
Moths behavior and habits vary as much as their appearance. Some moths are considered major pests, while others don’t have much of an impact on humans or agricultural products. Moths are actually a good food source for lots of animals, such as birds, mammals, reptiles, insects and even a few plants.
Your New Roommates:
The moths that most people encounter most are found in dark places like cabinets, basements, attics, and closets. You can usually find them on fabrics or hiding in the corners. Moths have the capability of infesting your home before a trace of them is even noticed. Therefore, a lot of damage can happen to clothing and furnishings if left untreated by a professional.
Moth Invasion. How can you tell?
The signs of a moth invasion depend on which type of moth you have. Just like their appearance and habits can be different, so can their invasion signs. Inside your home, moths can be detected by the adults that are on the go, flying around the room. You will know when you have a fabric-feeding moth when you notice your clothes having small holes in them. Others will leave cocoons, droppings, and webbings of their activity. You could also notice damaged food in your pantry or their pupae may be seen in corners of drawers, walls or cabinets.
I bet you didn’t know this:
The droppings cased by a moth infestation can sometimes be confused with those of termites. To be sure of your infestation, it’s highly recommended to have a professional advise you on the proper pest treatment for your infestation.
Most store-bought ‘mothballs’ or other moth insecticides do not kill the main source of a moth infestation. Therefore, without specific identification and a professional treatment, moth control cannot be treated effectively. Also, home remedies don’t account for the fact that different kinds of moth infestations require different treatments.
