So is it the actual moths that eat the wool (assuming that's what they like about the old tennis balls), or is it the larvae?
I'm no entomologist, but I believe I read it is the larvae who eat the textiles (wool). Do a google on "moth repellent" and see what you learn, though I think it'd be wisest to stay away from oils or things which could moisten or discolour your balls (umm, that sounded odd, didn't it? ).

Reportedly, dried orange peels also keep moths (who make larvae) away from things.
