A Nasty Surprise!

I have never had problems with moths, in fact, I don't think I've ever even seen one, until today... We brought in an antique woolen rug from storage where it was stored for a couple of years, waiting to find a right place. We now finally have use for the rug, which is actually very beautiful, light colored, traditional rug. It was to go in our dining area. Anyhow, when we opened the rug it was infested with moths, and they had fully eaten the fringes off of both ends of the rug. Yuck!

We quickly removed the rug from the house to the deck where we broomed, vacuumed and sprayed with a pesticide. And then my other half jumped in a car to drive to the nearest Home Depot to buy some moth killer stuff.. Hopefully we can save this beautiful carpet.
