Though the Lubin comedies had been steadily improving through 1909 and early 1910, He Got Rid of the Moths was a throwback to the studio's cruder early days. Upon arriving home from vacation, the hero discovers that his wardrobe has been ruined by moths. Resorting to the usual method of pest control, he lights up a few pots full of sulfur, then lets nature take its course. Alas, the sulfur fumes permeate his entire home, then spread to the adjoining apartments. He gets rid of the moths, all right, but also drives his friends and neighbors out into the street -- and they're none too happy about it, as proven by the film's knockabout finale.
