If you care about your clothes, be on guard against moths. Moth larvae (and not the moths themselves) damage and hide in dark, humid places, so spring and summer are when they thrive.
It is important to keep everything clean. That’s because moths dislike tidy fabrics. They only grow on natural fibres and are particularly drawn towards dirty silk and wool. So regularly rug out your wool blankets and vacuum your linen closets and clothes.
Create a DIY Cedar Closet
It’s crucial to use some elements that avoid mothballs — they’re not just smelly but also poisonous. While cedar oil kills moth eggs, the other scents are merely preventative.
Traps work by attracting male moths, who then get stuck to the glue, reducing chances for mating and, in turn, the number of eggs and larvae.
Anything that smells clean or floral is unattractive to moths. However, it works subtly and can be made more powerful by blending with essential oils.
