Hi everyone...I am seeing some moths in my spare room where I "store" my yarn...alot of it (yarn) is just in "plastic bags"...I do not want to use "moth balls" cause then the yarn will smell like those so what do you guys use???? any thoughts?
you can use mint and lavender. I think there is something else but can't remember. Also moths normally eat wool, I know this first hand, since I lost one of my sweaters due to being eaten. FYI it is the larva of moths that eat your wool not the moths themselves. Also moth balls are toxic in general.
Yes, cedar wood is a natural moth repellant. You can get cedar chips in pet stores - it's used for like bedding and stuff, I believe. And of course, there is always the old-fashioned cedar chest that our grandmothers used.
Hope this helps,

I don't think that the cedar kills the larva of the moths. It just keeps the moths away so they don't lay the eggs.
Although I might be wrong, but so far so good with my wool yarns. I always check for the buggers and they aren't anywhere around.
