Spotted and proceeded to decimate one last night. I've thankfully been moth free since the thread below so hoping the little bugger that met his end last night was a stray from an open window. Can you have 'stray' moths?!
Hiya, I have to say I have never had a problem with moths in the seven or eight years I've lived in/around SE1, but this year they seem to be EVERYWHERE. I wonder if it is just a particular blight this spring?
Trouble is, I think, that the moths themselves don't eat your cashmere - they lay eggs which hatch out and the grubs do the damage. I was infested - no make that my house was infested with them some years ago, when they ate the carpet (not all f it, just bits) and after trying several proprietary brands of moth exterminator had finally to call in professional help which cured the problem. They said one of the best ways to keep them at bay was to vacuum thoroughly, especially round the edges of carpets and in corners etc.
go to the Tool shop in Lower Marsh. The have these strips which attract the moths and then catch them them like the old fly papers. The good news, they work, the bad news I have had a lot of moths whose larvae are munching my clothes.
