We have just moved from the East of England to the North. It was grim: as we packed we kept finding clothes that we had in storage with great manky holes in, they had eaten through a load of wool I was saving, and worst was a small jewellery box that had dropped behind a chest of drawers. I thought I had somehow lost it and was so happy to find it, but when I opened it a bloody moth had got inside and LAID EGGS ALL OVER THE INSIDE. I was nearly a bit sick. Loads of my friends had similar problems and I swear the Lakeland in our town was doing a roaring trade in anti-moth stuff.
Up North I haven't seen a single one! Not only is the beer cheaper here, I don't have to run round capturing moths that will eat my clothes. Is it all in my head, or is it because it's a bit colder here, or what??
