A reader recently wrote us, “I have what I believe to be clothes moths and case bearing moth infestations in my home. I have found a couple of each of the moths dead in the laundry room, closet, and garage. I believe these larvae are eating my carpet, clothes, and rugs. I have spent tons of money on an exterminator and have had to throw out expensive area rugs and clothes. I clean and vacuum like mad. Please help!”
She did send us a photograph that she took of her bathroom vanity. We aren’t quite sure what we are looking at. In the middle of the picture about 2/3 down from the top, there might be a small worm-like organism, but we aren’t too sure. Instead, we are going to go off the information our reader provided, since she wrote us such a helpful, detailed message.
