If you’re organised enough to have different wardrobes for winter and summer, you may notice a moth infestation when you take your seasonal clothes out of storage. On the other hand, if you’re as organised as that, you probably won’t have moths – they don’t like clean clothes.
The larvae of the clothes moth used to die back over winter in the days when all our houses were chilly for half the year. Now, with central heating, they flourish.
It’s not just clothes and linens that are susceptible. Moths are also partial to sheep’s wool insulation, which could lead to some quite expensive destruction.
