Hello. I can assist you with your question.

Customer:

Great

Customer:

hey

Customer:

What do I do??

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Hello

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

First, vacuum absolutely everything.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Then you can use Boric Acid Dust

Customer:

i USED WOOL LITE FOAM AND MIRCLE CAT SRAPY

Customer:

SORRY CAT SPRAY

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Not familiar with those.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Can you put your clothes in the dryer for the most part?

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

The dryer will destroy moth larvae

Customer:

BORIC ACID DUST IS IT OK FOR ME AND MY ASTHMA??? AND DOGS

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

I can't tell you that for sure.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

You would have to check the label.

Customer:

iT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT EVEYTHING IN THE DRYER

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Here is a natural alternative.

Customer:

WHAT

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

This recipe will fill about a dozen sachets. You can buy herbs in bulk at almost any health food store:


2 ounces each dried rosemary and mint
1 ounce each dried thyme and American ginseng
8 ounces whole cloves


Mix herbs and place some in the center of a bandanna or handkerchief (or in a muslin tea-bag, available at health food stores). Tie with a ribbon.



XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Still... I don't think it's healthy for a pet to actually eat these things.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

But as long as they won't be doing that, you should be ok.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

This does work.

Customer:

THAT SOUNDS GOOD AND WOULD NOT CAUSE ME TO STOP BREATHING WHAT DO MOTHS EAT??

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Wool.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

lol

Customer:

THAT SOUNDS GREAT AND SAFE FOR MY ASTHMA WHAT DO MOTHS EAT???

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Mothballs are generally dangerous and unhealthy

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Depends on the species

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

Some moths don't eat as adults

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

But flower nector

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

only liquids.

XXXXX XXXXXnigan :

because they use a little tube to eat... like a straw.
