Does anyone still uses mothballs? I have never seen or noticed moth eaten clothes until yesterday while cleaning out a closet . Tiny little holes on a some wool pants I never wore (I had two of the same, hardly wore one of them, so no need for other ever).
Now I am freaking out worried some of my jackets and suits that get little use will be eaten. I cleaned out all my closets and drawers and will now look for some preventive measures.
The best preventative measure for moths is ensuring that you are not storing soiled clothes because moths are attracted to food stains and such on the clothes. Both moth balls and cedar will repel moths, but both are required in pretty serious concentrations and the effectiveness of both will fade pretty quickly. I keep my most expensive suits clean and in canvas suit bags.
