There are two primary types of insects whose larvae damage fabrics.

Carpet beetles (Family: Dermestidae) and Clothes moths (Family: Tineidae).

Both carpet beetles and clothes moths are unusual in the insect world because they are among very few insects that produce an enzyme in their digestive system. This enzyme, keratinase, that allows them to digest keratin, the protein in animal hair.

There are other insects that can: crickets, silverfish, cockroaches and termites, but infrequently feed on fabrics.

    Cesar Saenz was at our home today in Sun City, Palm Desert. Cesar was exceptionally pleasant and very attentive to our problem of termite trails in our closet and one bedroom baseboard. He replaced the baseboard after applying chemical into the drilled holes. He did an excellent job and cleaned up after he was finished.
