Clothes Moth

03_Clothes_Moth
A tiny house moth with straw coloured wings and no markings; wing span is about 6 to 8 mm. Larva feeds on all materials, clothes and textiles of animals origin. Nowadays the moth is less common in houses than earlier apparently due to the increase in use of artificial fibres and the much drier atmosphere created by central heating.
