    moths will eat any kind of fabric they can. I make cedar sachets and put them in my room. They are good to keep other insects away too.

    It's not a secret, you need fresh cedar like the ones I make. I have a good supplier. I can sell some to anyone that wants.

    Only certain types of moths eat wool or cotton. If they were just regular old miller moths you don't need to worry about them.

    LOL - I call my husband MOTH, it means Man Of the House - it is an ironic title, as on our first night as man and wife, he was running around the bedroom screaming like a scalded cat and pointing to the corner above our bed. It was a huntsman spider, and I, in my wedding night finery, had to remove the spider and take it down the road. While he cowered in a corner, and screeched at me to get rid of it. And he insisted I squash it and have a shower afterwards. Not quite the wedding night I had planned, but it still brings a smile to my face everytime I think of it.
