Increasing evidence indicates that moths are potentially a significant source of both indoor and outdoor inhalant allergens. Moths are characterised by wings covered with scales, and these are suggested to be the major vectors in airborne exposure. Increasing evidence indicates that moths are potentially a significant source of both indoor and outdoor inhalant allergens. Occupational moth allergy has also been reported in bakers, in laboratory workers involved in gypsy moth research, and in workers in biological pest control factories engaged in the production of beneficial arthropods. The characteristics of the allergen producing asthma caused by inhaled miller moth particles were investigated by skin testing and by Sephadex fractionation. No major difference in skin test reactivity was found between the wings and the bodies of the moths. Two fractions of the moth extracts were found to contain allergic reactivity. The importance of detailed history_taking in order to discover such causes of asthma is stressed.
