Let’s Understand moths First.
Moths come in many varieties and can show some risks to crops, food, and fabrics.
Webbing clothes moths are mainly seen on fabrics. They look like small buff-coloured insects and can grow up to 5 cm in length. They tend to appear in the areas where sunlight is less, such as basements, wardrobes, attics and closets. They also hide in the folds of fabrics and clothes and cause a lot of damage before you’re even aware of their presence.

Monitor your windows entryways
Moths usually enter the property via windows openings. We know you open windows to let in fresh air, especially during warm days; Before you do that be sure to monitor them to see if pests are using them as an entryway. You can also install pest screen protection on your windows.

Tidy your wardrobe, so that it doesn’t get overcrowded with clothes. This will enable you to spot problems more efficiently. Put unwanted and out-of-season clothes into storage boxes in the basement or attic.
