Beside this, how long is Cedar effective against moths?
Cedar oils also don't repel adult clothes moths or other fabric pests such as carpet beetles. An old cedar chest like your aunt's will not protect clothes or woolens from clothes moths. One study suggested that a cedar chest more than three years old is practically useless for killing clothes moth larvae.
Also, how do you keep moths away? Place dried rosemary, thyme, cloves, lavender or bay leaves into a small cloth bag and hang them in your wardrobe and place them in your drawers. The oil form of these herbs, sprayed on contaminated areas and clothes, can also repel moths.
In respect to this, what is the best moth repellent?
Cedar is well-known to be an effective moth repellent, and the CedarFresh Value Pack from Household Essentials is our top overall choice. This value set comes with 71 solid cedar pieces that can be placed throughout your home to ward off moths and protect your clothing, rugs and more.
What do cedar balls repel?
While it's common knowledge that cedar chips deter moths from munching on your sweaters and other wool items in summer storage, cedar is also useful in deterring other pests both inside and outside. Cedar's superpower to combat unwanted bugs, snakes and rodents lies in its distinctive and pleasant earthy smell.
