Shelf Systems

I would like some recommendations on moth/larvae control in my closets. I had several wool sweaters chewed through with holes. Does anyone have a non-toxic solutions to this. Moth balls are toxic especially in my case with a 2 year old.
I am also going to a newer wire shelf like closetmaid. Can someone recommend a nice company or shelving system.

Take clothes to a dry cleaner and line the walls with Cedar, I saw Cedar closet kits at maybe menards, even a bundle of Cedar shingles will do.

Change the closet hardware to a locking knob set and then use mothballs as needed. Locking the 2 year old out is good parenting, so that he can learn about the limits in life. HTH

I believe Cedar wood also works and is non-toxic but you ned more than 1 or 2 of those little hangers. I actually had a problem like this in an apartment. It was years ago.
I found honest to goodness cedar chips at a pet store and put these in a net (laundry) bag and used that. I also had cats and figured out how to get moth balls up. I put them also in a small net bag, then nailed the bag firmly up near the ceiling.
I have no specific recommendations on the closet system, we tend to like to make our own (hobby fun for us).

I would agree about putting a lock on the closet. 2 year olds can get into stuff they shouldn't. Putting stuff up high doesn't always work. We caught our grand niece at age 3 pulling out drawers in kitchen cabinets to make a "ladder."
As to shelves, I like the Closet Maid system. The house we just moved into had some wire shelves. I needed more in a walk-in closet for stuff like folded shirts, sweaters, shoes, etc. Get a small bolt cutter to cut the shelves to the proper length. Be generous with mounting hardware, braces, etc. I got all my stuff at Lowes, though Home Depot should carry the stuff as well. My local hardware store also had some stuff. Plan carefully so that you get all the right stuff, and save some trips.

For wire rack shelves, are the sliding adjustable ones not as strong as the one piece ones that you have to cut to length?
