It's chilly outside so you reach for a snuggly sweater from your closet, pull it on and discover...holes. Small (or maybe not so small) little nibbly holes from your resident clothes moths.
Webbing clothes moths make their way into your home and set up housekeeping in your closet. They're small, and good at hiding. Female mothes love dark, warm areas where they lay their eggs, and the larvae that hatch busily eat what's at hand, namely the fabric or natural fibers of their environment.
How to get rid of them
Old style: Toxic-chemical based mothballs
There's nothing to like about mothballs. Here's what Wiki says:
Older mothballs consisted primarily of naphthalene, but due to naphthalene's flammability, many modern mothball formulations instead use 1,4-dichlorobenzene, which may be somewhat less flammable. The latter chemical is also variously labeled as para-dichlorobenzene, p-dichlorobenzene, pDCB, or PDB, making it harder to identify unless all these synonyms are known to a potential purchaser. Both of these ingredients have that distinctive strong, pungent, sickly-sweet odor, and undergo sublimation, meaning that they evaporate from a solid state directly into a gas; this gas is toxic to moths and moth larvae.
1,4-dichlorobenzene has been deemed a carcinogen by the National Toxicology Program, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, and the State of California. 1,4-dichlorobenzene and naphthalene have been banned in the European Union (the EU) since 2008.
New style: Toxin-free alternatives
Toxin-free alternatives to control clothes moths include freezing, dry cleaning, washing in hot water, or thorough vacuum cleaning. Camphor is no longer recommended as a moth repellent, due to its toxicity.
BioCare Clothes Moth Traps - Non-toxic, chemical-free moth traps
Per SpringStar, their BioCare Clothes Moth Trap attracts and captures adult mail webbing clothes moths. Clothes moths occasionally occur in homes, where the larval stage damages clothing and other personal objects made of wool, hair, fur, feathers or other natural fibers.
