Moth Larvae Development

The eggs hatch after 4-10 days into larva which are responsible for causing the damage to fabrics and carpets. Any material that has a high natural fibre content e.g. wool, silk, fur, cotton etc. The moth larvae development into an adult moth can take from 35 days to 2 years. When the larva is ready to pupate it will spin a silken cocoon, emerging from it in 2-6 weeks as an adult moth. After the male and female mate, the male will die. The female will live 2-3 weeks longer to lay her eggs onto carpets, clothes and fabrics, keep the infestation going before she dies.
