Moths are closely related to the butterfly and are generally only active at night. Despite being framed for eating clothing, most adult moths do not eat anything at all – it is the moth larvae that cause destruction by eating fabrics made from natural materials such as wool or silk.
When dealing with moth infestations, often professional help is desired due to the fact that moths are more resistant to pesticides than mosquitoes or flies and therefore require more intensive pest control measures.
More than 2,500 species of moth have been recorded in the UK. Most moths live only a few days, but some hibernating species can live for up to 8 months. Listed below are the moth species that can commonly be found within the UK.
