Webbing Clothes Moth (Tineola Bisselliella)
This is one of the most common bugs that eat clothes. These are winged insects but rarely do they fly. The usual size of the moth is about 1-2 inches. Its body and wings are light brown in color and the wings are spotless. In general, the lifespan of an adult webbing clothes moth is 60-90 days. They may survive longer (a few days more) if the weather condition is cold. They multiply at a very rapid pace. A female moth mates and lays eggs on the very same day. The eggs are laid in groups in between the threads or cracks of the clothing. These bugs do not like to get exposed to light and hide themselves in closed corners. They are found more in cotton and silk clothes and are less common in fur and woolen materials. Your clothes may get attacked by them at any time of the year but they become abundant in warm, summer climate.
