How to Stop Moth Infestations From Spreading
Once moths have begun eating one area rug, they usually quickly move on to the rest of your stored rugs, as well as your other fur, silk, cotton, and wool items. The easiest way to tell if an area rug has been damaged by a moth is to look for noticeable bald spots in its pile. If the infestation is severe enough, you may also notice delicate moth netting over your entire rug’s surface.
If you suspect a moth has damaged your area rug, be sure to remove it from your home immediately in order to stop an infestation from spreading. Periodic rug inspections and mothproofing are your best defenses against damages to area rugs caused by moths. We also recommend cleaning your hardwood floors with solutions of cedar or lavender because these tend to keep moths and other insects away.
