Natural Moth Repellents
Conventional moth repellents are potent pesticides. They work by off-gassing vapours which are toxic enough to kill the moths and larvae. Even in a 'sealed' container the vapours can escape and can be rapidly absorbed via inhalation. We strongly advise never to use naphthalene or p-dichlorobenzene based mothballs, especially if there are children in the house.
Natural moth deterrents such as lavender, cloves, cinnamon and cedar are very effective at preventing moths from damaging your clothing, but it's important that they're used as part of a good moth prevention routine. You can read our detailed advice on deterring moths and carpet beetles here.
