What Are Moths Made of?

Answer

A moth is an insect that is closely related to the butterfly, in the order Lepidoptera. The larva of this insect is known to devour clothes. The caterpillars are pests that attack plants and the popular ones are corn borers and bollworms. A moth is made up of a head, thorax and an abdomen. The fumes that are produced by the moth balls repel moths and also cause clothes to develop a strong chemical odour.
