Moths are known for their distinctive pair of wings, which are drab in color and typically resemble earth tones like brown, white, gray or black. Moths often are stout, measuring ⅜ to ½ inch in size, and appear furry with feathery antennae.

Some moth larvae can eat fabric such as clothes and blankets made from fibers like wool or silk. To treat infestations, dry clean anything made of wool or animal fibers, and wash the rest of clothes in hot water.
