Museums Moth Misery

Some of our greatest collections of artefacts in museums all over the country, are under attack from various moths and beetles. Irreplaceable historic objects like costumes, tapestries and carpets in virtually all of Britain's national museums are being threatened as infestations reach unprecedented levels. These textiles are particularly vulnerable as they are composed of natural fibres like wool, silk, cotton, hairs and skins and many were dyed using plants or even crushed insects, making them ideal food for the moths and beetles. Pest specialists are using a range of techniques such as pesticides, lures, traps and even freezing some items, to help save our fragile heritage.
