Insects that eat carpets, clothes and other woolen or natural material based fabrics are known as ‘textile pests’. In general, they are not associated with poor hygiene or disease spreading as other pest species. Instead they are quite selective in their choice of breeding sites preferring natural fabrics such as wool mixtured carpets and woolly jumpers to lay their eggs and feed upon.
