Moths are notorious for destroying clothing and fabric and can also damage the fibers in area rugs. Moths are partial to wool and silk - two of the top fibers used to construct Oriental rugs and other fine rugs and textiles.
These pests will do the most damage to rugs made of animal products including furs, flannels, wools, and feathers.
Silverfish can damage rugs made of natural fibers such as wool, cotton, paper, silk, and also rayon fabrics. They usually live and develop in dark, cool places, especially bathrooms and basements. Firebats also eat rugs.
Dust mites are tiny, invisible insects that can live in fibers on rugs. Unlike spiders or ticks, dust mites are not visible to the naked eye.
There are many other insects and pests that can invade your rug and affect you and your family’s health such as bed bugs, termites, wasps. Others include ticks, body lice, cockroaches, flies, wasps, spiders, ants, hornets, pillbugs, mosquitoes, centipedes, gnats, etc.
Each of these pests may require special treatments and some may require a call to a licensed pest control operator to rid them from your home environment, but there is a way to prevent an infestation and inhibit the growth of most insects...
