Q: Moths And Litter?

April 24, 2011 | By Ches21 | 1 answer | Expired: 1740 days ago


Recently I discovered that there have been moths in the litter box in the clean litter. At first it was just a few of them so I didn't mind but now alot of the time that they have gotten in to the house it's 5 moths or more and they will try and stay in the litter box even when I am scooping it or pouring new litter in it. So Why are the moths attracted to the kitty litter?

Are you using one of the natural litters made from corn or wheat? I've heard of people having problems with moths & other bugs when using litters like World's Best or Swheat. In those cases it would be like getting weevils in flour. They're attracted to grains & lay their eggs in them. I don't know what the attraction would be if you're using a clay litter. Insects usually hate clay.
