The larvae of webbing clothes moths are what do the damage to fibers located in your home; they thrive in areas of high humidity and will generally live and feed in hidden areas like the inside of clothing, furniture, or underneath rugs. Webbing clothes moths feed on natural fibers including wool, fur, and hair. In the case of a large infestation, you may even notice them feeding on fabric items right out in the open.
Adult webbing clothes moths do not like bright lights. If they see light or are disturbed, they will scuttle quickly away into the darkness. Because of their aversion to light, they prefer to live in the dark quiet areas of homes like closets, basements, and attics.
Webbing clothes moths are not a health risk to people, nor do they bite or sting. They are, however, a dangerous pest to have living in your home because they will damage and destroy fabric items located within it.
