Clothes Moth

LargeClothesMothThere are two common species of clothes moths — the webbing clothes moth and the case-making clothes moth — that share many of the same characteristics and behaviors, but differ slightly in appearance. Size: Both species are about 3/8-inch long.

Color: Webbing clothes moths are cream colored with a tuft of red hair on the top of the head.

The larvae are white and will be found on fabrics among thin sheets of webbing that they spin to shield themselves. They often leave strands of silk on fabrics they infest. Case-making clothes moths are also cream colored, but have three dark spots located on each front wing. The larvae spin silk cases around themselves for protection.
