Sphinx Moths (Hawk Moths)
Most adult moths eat nectar or simply do not feed, and moth larvae feed on many types of foliage and clothing fibers. Adult male moths of the Calyptra genus are capable of feeding on blood. Clothes moths are infamous household pests due to the ability of larvae to feed on keratinous materials, such as wool or fur. Over time, this causes serious damage to textiles. Damage occurs mostly beneath buttons, around seams and in pockets due to the moth's habit of seeking out dark, recessed spaces.
