Terrible to have this pest in your daughters closets and causing damage to her clothing. Using the exterminator and his experience would be a good start to fix the problem but understand that it can be expensive for his services. Moth balls can be effective but messy so here are ways in which to rid the home from these pests:

1. Tips from Readers Digest. From cleaning clothing to vacuum more often:

2. Protecting clothing using cedar for example:
