Help! I might have moth in the house.
I am so sad. I just found that the longie I knitted for my DD has several holes on it. I might have moth in my house.

What should I do? How do you store your wool yarn and wool knits?

There's a natural moth repellent recipe in this article at the bottom of the page.

Any Incense (AKA Joss sticks) will deter bugs, but lavender and sage are both recomended for detering moths. "greetings from knit cafe" recommended lavender, but I can't stand the smell for long so I went with sage and we now have moths in many parts of the house-
but they're all avoiding my room now!
