Moths seek quiet, undisturbed areas to lay their eggs. Place pouches in these ares to protect your garmets. Pouches emit a scent pleasant to humans, but offensive to moths. Toxic chemicals are not necessary to control moths. You can get rid of moths without killing them, and it is safer for your family and the environment to do so. Mothballs should be avoided altogether as they are made from chemicals that are poisonous to people and animals, and they are just terribly stinky. Using a natural repellent like Stay Away® Moths is a risk free way to solve your moth problem. Follow our 3 step plan to prevent pest problems and get rid of moths: Clean up - Make sure clothing, linens and fabrics are laundered or dry cleaned before storing. Consider storing items in plastic totes or storage bags for added protection.Seal up - Make sure doors and windows are properly fitted and screens are intact to prevent moths from coming inside.Pouch up - Place Stay Away® Moths pouches anywhere you want to prevent moths from entering, particularly in closets, dresser drawers, storage chests or wardrobes. Use one pouch per closet or container. Use two pouches if treating a small room. Increase the number of pouches until the desired results are achieved. Replace pouches every 30-60 days or as scent diminishes.
