Hello, i have just come across a stick caterpillar in my wardrobe which i immediately identified from its strange way of walking, i am worried i will find more caterpillars, perhaps eggs or a moth infestation? What should i be looking for? I guess their eggs would be very small?

It is a geometrid - nothing to worry about - just an accidental intruder that will not damage anything in your home.
