Moths are a species of small butterflies, whose larvae attack clothes that contain wool, fur or silk, carpets and furniture such as sofas and armchairs. At the same time, there are food moths that grow in products such as flour, corn, sugar, rice, pasta or nuts, which are inadequately stored.

Certainly, we all know that moths are sensitive to naphthalene, sprays or commercial pills, but there are other effective and much cheaper methods to get rid of these ugly and destructive insects.

My grandma never used naphthalene for moths, because of its pungent and toxic smell, instead she used aromatic plants.

The effects are guaranteed, because she uses this method for decades, and her wardrobe never been attacked by moths.

Here is how we get rid of the moths with aromatic plants:

You need:

  • cloves
  • rosemary
  • thyme
  • mint
  • small sachets

You need 1 teaspoon of each aromatic plant, preferably fresh, because their aroma is stronger. Place each aromatic plant in one sachet, tie it, and then put the sachets in the wardrobe, between the clothes.

Change the aromatic plants sachets every 2-3 months, because they lose their strong aroma over time.
