Textile Pests

Textile pests include moths and many beetle species that feed on the natural protein 'Keratin'. This can be found in any textile of animal origin including wool, silk, animal hair, leather and feathers. It is actually the larvae of textile pests such as the varied carpet beetle which cause the visible damage. Adult beetles will feed on nectar and pollen from flowering plants.

It is not just everyday items like clothing, upholstered furniture or woollen carpets which are at risk. Collections of valuable textile items of historic or cultural significance can all be at risk from a textile pest infestation. If left untreated textile pests can cause irreplaceable damage.
