    Last night I noticed a moth flitting around the computer room - same room I keep my kit etc in.

    I thought I'd have inspect my stuff today.

    Damage so far.

    SD trousers - I have a spare pair

    Beret (My old RHKR one so only annoying for sentimental reasons.)

    Kilt - large hole in the under apron.

    Plaid - small hole that is hidden by the pleats.

    Trews - destroyed. Bin

    TOS - damaged. another ex-regt but I still wear it as a civ hat in kilt. Its not destroyed but...

    Fcuking moths - what useful function do they perform in the food chain?

    Now I don't want my clothes smelling of mothballs so does any one out there know of something else that will deter the little fcukers with out making me smell like (insert here whatever smells of mothballs)?
  2. Cedar wood is good. Try cubes or even Cedar clothes hangers. expensive, but they work and smell so good!
  3. Cedar wood discs.

    Moths don't like the stuff but it smells nice to us.

    Snap :)
