Moth larvae feed on clothes and carpets, and can do extensive damage if unnoticed. A water-based insecticide is used on all soft furnishings and permanent fixtures, especially those in cold, dark places, as moths prefer these environment. They can also infest food stores, such as cereal, grain and flour.
The adults do not feed, and thus have a short lifespan of approximately 21 days, but it is the larvae that feed, preferring organic fibres such as wool, especially if dirty or soiled. It has long been suggested that Cedar wood can repel moths with its natural scent; however, this is a temporary measure, as the wood would lose its scent over time.
Moth balls have been used for years to control moths, but there are concerns for human health over prolonged exposure to the fumes.
