LIFE CYCLE OF A CLOTHES MOTH:


It all starts with one small moth flickering around your living room trying to find a suitable food source for their larvae to feed from once hatched. 


Adult clothes moths only live for 15-30 days but in this time a female can lay hundreds of  tiny eggs only 0.5mm in size. The eggs will eventually hatch in around 4-20 days (depending on the temperature) into hundreds of hungry larvae that will be in search of their first meal.


Once at the larvae stage they  can feed on your carpets, clothing, fur and feather  for up to three months, After this time the larvae will have enough nutrition to then take the next steps in becoming a moth. 


Once the larvae have gained all the nutrition they need, it is time to go into the final part of their life cycle, the pupae stage. The pupae stage is when the larvae will get into its silk spun cocoon and mature into a breeding moth.


 The larvae can be in the pupae stage for up to 20 days before  transforming into a breeding moth and that is why moth infestations can get out of hand.
