    I've had wool blend carpets in cars, is this a wool blend? My 80 doesn't get driven much, usually just on rainy days. My Daughter totalled her Subaru a few weeks ago and has been driving the 80. I drove the 80 yesterday and it was full of little moths. My 5-Yr-old loved it, when we got home he caught dozens of moths for his praying mantis. I left the 80's windows open in the garage last night, didn't see any this morning, either they left or my son was especially throrough.

    Not sure about moths but I was researching crickets recently and found that certain types will eat sythetic material like carpet...

    Yes, but do they lick the carpet before they eat it?
