English Heritage reports 100% increase Clothes Moths.
It’s not our imagination: the rise and rise in the number of Clothes Moths in the UK is now official, and Clothes Moth prevention is urgent. English Heritage has detected 100% increase as they estimate the count. It’s a nightmare for them, responsible as they are not just for historic costumes, but for all that upholstery, those curtains, the priceless tapestries, carpets and rugs. And they want our help.
These are actions we can take immediately:
- Start trapping those moths – then ill in the English Heritage form for their Operation Clothes Moth Campaign: http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/learn/conservation/operation-clothes-moth/. Your data will be invaluable to their conservation scientists. You can even pick up a free Clothes Moth Trap from English Heritage sites all over the country.
