  • The charity found silverfish was the most often seen pest at properties in 2019, closely followed by the webbing clothes moth.
  • Other pests that The Trust is concerned about include the woolly bear, a generic term for various carpet beetle larvae, the Australian spider beetle, and the Common booklouse.
  • The booklouse will graze book leaves, while the larvae of the Australian spider beetle are scavengers and will feed on more or less anything, including wool, hair, textiles and wood fragments.
