Signs of damaging moths:

  • Adult moths (mostly crawling instead of flying)
  • maggot-like larvae (= moth caterpillars)
  • Web quivers in which the moth larvae lived
  • Pupae (silk caterpillar cocoons) in which the larvae develop into moths

Please note that damage to carpets can also be caused by larvae of fur beetles or cabbage beetles.

Signs of storage damaging moths:

  • Fine webs (threads similar to cobwebs) on food supplies
  • Spun droppings from moths, cob threads
  • Lumpy supply
  • Moth moults
  • Food marks on packaging
  • Live or dead specimens

The fact is: the adult moths do not eat. They mate and then lay their eggs directly on the substrate. The larvae that develop from this have to eat a lot to grow and pupate, where major damage occurs.
