Metadata[+] Show full item record
"Of all the insects that invade the home, the clothes moths and carpet beetles are probably the most injurious. Every year many wool garments, blankets, furs, hair brushes, feathers, upholstery, rugs, and other materials made of animal fibers are ruined by these pests whose destructive feeding is often not noticed until it is too late to save the article. Damage is caused by the larvae or growing stage feeding on the fibers and nap and causing holes or scarred and weakened spots in the material. As the army increases in size and requires more and more wool, and the supply for civilians shrinks, it is important and necessary for each housewife to protect such articles from the attacks of these insects. Three species of clothes moths and four carpet beetles are pests m the home."--Page 1-2.
