The house I moved into in June (and am currently moving out of…… with a wicked quickness) exploded with fabric eaters. We know for a fact theres webbing clothes moths and black carpet beetles. I had to look on line. I’ve seen adults and larva of both. There’ s 1 I’m unsure of: black worm-like bug inside cottony looking ……. wrapping? Don’t quite know what to call it. Was wondering if its a webbing clothes moth teenager. The 2nd is very hard to explain. They’re black and sometimes I catch a glimpse of a shiny black head. It seems they really like the seams and they’re not shy about eating. They’re on everything here. Example: they’re eating the corners of my couches,handbags and synthetics also.
How do l get rid of these things? All of them. They laughed at various bug sprays. I’m sprinkling diatomaceous everywhere now. What a mess, but I have unreplcable antique carpets from g-parents that are being eaten. Do you know what the seam eaters are and how do i kill them? I’m at a loss. I have indoor pets also.
I would be in your debt if you could help me.
