Reportedly, dried orange peels also keep moths (who make larvae) away from things.
Thanks again, having had a quick look now, it seems it's the larvae and the moths eating the wool. I would rather use a repellant as you say, as the only other option I had was to wrap my balls in sealed plastic to keep the moths/larvae away, but i thought that might also be bad for my balls
Also if I stick cedar next to all my wool, what do the moths/larvae do then? Move on to cotton?
