Clothes Moths

Clothes moths are a type of fabric pest which can cause significant damage to ones property. Cloth moths are scavengers and will typically feed on fungi and on woolen fabrics. The three species that attack clothes and woolens are of considerable economic importance. Because these insects often live in cracks and void areas, they can be very difficult to treat without a professional.  Contact Pest-Gone, LLC a NJ pest control company with over two decades of experience with this type of treatment.

Treating these insects should be taking care of promptly as just one moth will lay enough eggs to cause considerable damage in as little as three weeks.  When these hatch, they become the fabric-eating larvae and immediately begin to cause damage to those items that are stained by foods, sweat, urine or other substances.  Pest-Gone, LLC has the knowledge and experience to resolve your issue of any fabric pest.
