Blanket storage ideas – Storing wool blankets will suitably prevent the moths from feasting with the blankets. In a hermetically sealed container, naphthalene vapors become highly concentrated and adult moths are repelled and larvae killed. These vapors also degrade plastic materials in the immediate area. Insert a blank tissue paper between the folds of the blankets to prevent wrinkling and store in a plastic bag. Squeeze the excess air or use a bag that can be vacuumed sealed.
Use a cedar box or plastic container only if the containers close tightly. Cedar will lose its protective properties of oil over time and plastic containers with loose tops will allow moths to enter and eat through the wool. If using naphthalene balls, check the plastic container at the end of the season for softened or weak spots. If any are found, discard the container.

Make a loose fabric cloth bag to place the naphthalene balls in the same container as the blankets. Do not allow naphthalene balls to come in contact with the blankets and use an additional tissue to form a barrier between the naphthalene bag and the blankets if necessary. Keep naphthalene balls away from pets and children to avoid poisoning.
