    Where do they come from?
    I remember, few years ago, when I was traveling for 37 days, a neighbor told me that other neighbors were talking about moths in front of the door of my apartment, and that they even sniffed around, to see (smell) if there is a dead body in the apartment...

    I sometimes forget half-eaten croissant in a bag, hanging on door tag, and so...

    They usually freak me out, I feel like in "Silence of the Lambs" movie.

    Last summer we had a lot more moths than usual in the U.K. By the autumn I discovered that I had an infestation of moth larvae which had eaten their way through a piece of carpet in a neglected corner of my home. There were larvae crawling under the carpet which I had to treat it with a moth insecticide.

    There was the solution then.

    Save on moth killer.

    Buy an out of date iceburg lettuce (5p?), shred the leaves under the carpet and let Thumper off the leash!

    We make cedar chests for a reason. The bugs you are bugged about do not like cedar. I guess there is a sort of oil involved.
