Description – The Case Bearing (Carpet) Moth (Tinea Pellionella) and also known as the Case Making Moth, is approximately 5mm in length. Forewings are yellowish brown, and there are usually three distinct, dark dots on the outer third of each wing. Hind wings are smaller, lighter and fringed with hair and scales. Eggs are whitish, and larvae are opaque-white with brown heads.

Distribution – Like the Common Clothes Moth the Case Bearing Moth is widely spread across the UK.

Life-Cycle – The Case Bearing Moth rarely flies to lights at night and instead prefers the darkness, such as a closet or storage chest. Any Moths fluttering around the house are probably males, because females travel by running, hopping or trying to hide in the folds of clothing. The female lays 100-150 white eggs on the surface of the fabric which will hatch into larvae in approximately 5 days. The period of larval development is usually 6 weeks, during which time the larvae actively feed on the fabric, however this can take considerably longer under cooler conditions.

Health Risk:

Case bearing clothes-moths pose no health risks but can cause notable damage, in its larval form, to natural
product fibres and materials. It may also vary its diet to include synthetic materials if natural products are not
easily available.

Life Cycle:

After mating the adult female moth tries to lay her eggs among fibres of suitable food materials for the
larvae. The larvae will then emerge at temperatures above 10°C and develop their ‘case’ which will protect
and harbour them.

After voraciously feeding and passing through approximately 5 moults the larvae will then pupate into an adult, which does not cause any material damage.There is normally one generation a year, although the adult moths may be present in early summer and early autumn.
