Caterpillars in the house

Observed: 26th November 2011 By: pstanford
caterpillar in the bath

Latest in a series of individuals on the top floor of a town house. Initially, about a month ago, a few fuzzy individuals about 8 mm long crawling up walls in a bedroom. Later, a few in the bath or on the bathroom windowsill, and one in the bedroom, all about the same size as this, about 15 mm. Fast moving, and doesn't like flash. There are plants in the bathroom, nowhere else. Some frass seen beneath plants last week, no individuals or leaf damage on plants. None seen in other upstairs rooms, or downstairs.

    Likely ID
    Cloths Moth (Tineola SP)
    Confidence: It might be this.
