Its probably happened to you. A favorite garment that may have been quite expensive suddenly breaks up into a series of small holes. One minute your clothes are fine, the next they are riddled with small pin holes. It could be a fault in the fabric but more likely its been eaten by clothes moths, which could be a result of a larvae infestation.

What many people do not realize is that the problem area with moths is their larvae. Within a few weeks hundreds of larvae can be infested within your clothes. The problem is they feed off your clothes.

Not only are moths attracted to clothes, they will go near any fabric item. So anywhere in your home which is made of linen or fabric is at risk from clothes moths. Once they lay their larvae your going to be in trouble if you don't take steps to combat the issue.

One of the first things you can do to prevent and get rid of moths is to make sure your home or room with your linen in is has a low humidity. Moths are naturally attracted to moist damp areas. So keeping a good environment to prevent moths is a good start.

Sometimes its not always convenient or possible to maintain a moth free environment. Some other options can help but may also be unrealistic. For example freezing, dry cleaning and of fumigating will get rid of moths but they aren't exactly the easiest of processes.

What is usually one of the best options is a natural moth repellent. This offers a safe and friendly way to repel problem moths. Therefor no clothes eating larvae will emerge, so your fabrics will stay safe.

Another benefit of a natural repellent of this kind is that they contain no harmful chemicals which could cause harm to a human or pet. In fact many are developed from a blend of natural oils which moths just don't like. These oils are picked from monitoring which insects repel of what plant. The oil from that specific plant is then used in a repellent product. In this case we are talking about moths.

A natural moth repellent come in many forms, normally you would hang the lightweight product on a hanger or door. Other options include tablets or sachets to place inside drawers. They are also reasonably priced and work for a decent amount of time.

There are different types of natural moth repellent that you can find online and in the stores. Try out these instead of the harmful ones so that you have a peaceful and trouble free moth elimination system.
