The carpet moth (Trichophaga tapetzella) is a real menace and can quickly do a lot of damage to your fine wool carpet, rugs or furnishings. In fact it is not the actual moth which does the damage but the larvae. Each female moth can lay around 200 eggs which it will find quite, dark and undisturbed areas, typically around the edges of the room, under furniture and curtains. Look out for the tell tale signs of the white cocoons which are about the size of a grain of rice. The larvae which can live up to 2 years spend the winter months feeding on natural fibres.  If you spot these or have noticed moths flying around through Spring to Autumn then feel free to call us and we can discuss the best way to tackle the problem before it gets out of hand
