How To Spot Them?

As the name suggests, fabric pests will typically be found on or around your fabrics. Carpet beetles will leave tell-tale signs they have been there by leaving small patches of bare carpet. Clothes moths will leave small holes in clothing, thinner patches on curtains, rugs, or carpets. Without proper treatment and prevention, these small insects can create a lot of damage.
