Controlling Moth Carpet Damage

We’ll be revisiting Aaron Groseclose’s piece “Moths: The Enemy of Wool Rugs” that was printed in October of 2002 in the upcoming May ICS. But we recently stumbled across a piece in the San Francisco Chronicle that details more ways to make sure clothes moths don’t damage your carpet and fabrics.



We’ll be revisiting Aaron Groseclose’s piece “Moths: The Enemy of Wool Rugs” that was printed in October of 2002 in the upcoming May ICS. But we recently stumbled across a piece in the San Francisco Chronicle that details more ways to make sure clothes moths don’t damage your carpet and fabrics.

From the Chronicle: “There are several things you can do to eradicate and prevent clothes moths. First, keep clothes and other fabrics stored in sealed, plastic bags. Next, hang a clothes moth pheromone trap in each closet. It will attract and catch the male moths and stop the breeding process. Don't hang more than one trap, or you will confuse the moths and they will just fly around, not sure where to go. Then wash all infested clothing in hot, soapy water to kill the larvae and eggs.”
