Rug Moths

Rug moths, or carpet moths, are a member of the textile moth family. Looking the same as a carpet moth to the human eye, straw coloured and around 10 mm long, they work in exactly the same way. They will lay their eggs deep into a rug, usually around the edges and at corners, where they will start to feed from the rugs fibres, growing in to small larvae/caterpillars, eventually eating away at the rug until they are ready to fly off and mate. Once they have mated, the female will lay new eggs. A female rug moth can lay up to 700 eggs in her life time, meaning an infestation will damage a rug or carpet beyond repair very quickly.
