Abstract

Clothes moths and carpet beetles are among the most destructive of household pests, but because of their retiring habits their presence is often overlooked until an infestation has become well established, and extensive damage has been done. Both types of insect, however, may be kept in check by periodic attention and the same control measures are effective against both beetles and moths.
