Help with moth ID (1 Viewer)


New member

We have had a fair few moths in the house in the last week or so. Some windows have been open but it seems like they are coming from inside the house.
There seem to be a few different types and we've had a few of each type - some pictures are attached.

Does anyone know where they might be coming from / what they might be attracted to? Clothes? Paper? Or is it just coincidence?

Any info would be much appreciated!
Thank you!

The middle one is a White-shouldered House Moth which breeds in houses, the larvae feeding on a range of organic material & found in bird nests.

The other two look a bit like Bee Moths to me.
