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.
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.
