Are moths dangerous?

They seem harmless, but sometimes I worry that I am underestimating moths.

Not usually, but there are species known to cause dermatitis. If you have an allergy to the "dust" on them, they can be harmful to those who have breathing problems, most likely similarly to how regular household dust might. Mostly though moths are just a minor nuisance and nothing to worry about.

They're harmless. But they can be a really big hassle. They multiply a lot in dark places. If they live in a closet they will live in the clothes.

Moths can't bite & therefore can't hurt you, however there is one species of moth that can. Calyptra (or Vampire Moths) feed off blood & can inject their proboscis (similar to a mosquito's nose) into your skin & suck your blood. They're only currently found in Europe & Asia though.
