Clothes moth (Tricophaga tapetzella Tinea pellionella, etc.)

Clothes moths are a heterogeneous group of “butterflies” that in the larval stage feed on furs, natural materials of animal origin and skins. Adults do not eat and therefore are not harmful.

Harm arises from the fact that when feeding the larvae gnaw at and destroy textile fibres, causing holes in material and rendering it useless. The greatest damage is when these insects attack carpets or tapestries of artistic value.

These species are of no hygiene or health interest.

Igiencontrol offers sophisticated monitoring systems for fabrics of artistic value while applying innovative green physical methods with zero residue.
