Wooly bears are destructive to home furnishings, feeding on carpets and sometimes clothes.
4-5mm long, brown in colour and possess three bunches of golden hairs, arranged in pairs on the posterior abdominal segments.
They avoid light and will roll up (not laugh!!) when disturbed.
They have several moulting stages so you may find many larval moults.
They can survive up to ten months and can live through the winter months.
Treatment will involve the application of a residual insecticide to affected items (usually carpets).
Do not apply insecticides to clothing. Check airing cupboards carefully as these are the main source of infestation.
If you have birds nests in the roof, these can also be a source of infestation.
Spraying Pro-Active C to all affected areas will gain good control, where you cannot use a liquid use Pro-Active Dust (safe and natural) liberally sprinkled throughout the area.
