Moths were first introduced into the United States in 1869 by an amateur entomologist from France named Etienne Leopold Trouvelot.  He wanted to establish a silkworm industry in North America, so he tried to breed gypsy moths with native caterpillars. He kept the caterpillars in enclosures until a storm destroyed these caterpillars' enclosures releasing the caterpillars.  

About Hickory

Hickory NC has emerged as one of the most desirable cities to live and do business in North Carolina. It is just a small city located in Western North Carolina. This used to be a tiny town but has grown to become a city with more than 50,000 residents. It has been recognized only recently as one of the top ten best places to live in the United States, according to Reader’s Digest.

Today, Hickory continues to reinvent itself. Residential and commercial establishments now abound. The downside of it is that with the presence of humans, the pests come with them.  Pests that include the moths.

Moths Can Be A Nuisance

Some moths can ruin your clothes. The clothes moths, as they are known, eat the protein found in your dirty clothes or carpets. They also can be found under sofas or beds, where it is dark and they can remain undisturbed.

On the other hand, pantry moths can ruin your food due to contamination from their webbing, feces, cocoons, and droppings.

Signs Of A Moth Infestation

A sign that your house has a clothes moth problem is, well, you have damaged clothes.  Or you may spot the moths themselves, or the eggs first.

Pantry moths settle where there is a supply of food. You may spot them flying around your kitchen. You may spot larvae inside open packs of dried food like rice, dried fruit, powdered milk, flour, cake mixes, cereals, nuts, and grains.


Moth traps are a good way to remove their presence inside your home. You can use pheromone traps that these moths will stick into.

Clean your clothes. They are attracted to food stains and perspiration. Keep your home clean by vacuuming regularly.
