Cedar Balls

What is Cedar ball?

Cedar has long been known for its moth repelling qualities as a natural insect repellent. Cedarwood is an amazing natural insect repellent that is perfect for preventing moths and providing a wonderful woody aroma that instantly fills your home and wardrobe. Cedar balls offer natural protection against moths and all insects. While humans find the scent of aromatic Cedar Balls attractive and pleasant, moths find it repellent and generally avoid areas where the Cedar scent is in high concentration.

Why do moths not like cedarwood?
Cedar wood contains natural oils and chemicals such as thujone that repel bugs. Cedar chips repel insects such as termites, cockroaches, cloth-eating moths, carpet beetles, and certain ants, such as odorous and Argentine. As far back as the time of the Ancient Greeks, humans were aware that cedar wood kept insects away. That's why cedarwood chests were built and used to store valuable objects and protect clothing and blankets. In addition, it was known that cedarwood deterred insects and moths while keeping material items smelling fresh and fragrant.

How long do Cedarwood Balls last?
It is pretty common for the scent of the Cedar Balls to fade after some time. However, a good Cedar Balls can last for six months. The best way to refresh the strength of cedar balls is by sanding the wood lightly with sandpaper to renew the aroma.

How to use Cedarwood Balls?
The Cedar Balls can be placed inside the corners of your closet, drawers of dressers, closet shelves, cabinets, lockers, cars, or anywhere in your home! It's also perfect for shoe boxes. They keep the odors to a minimum. Unlike mothballs and even cedar blocks, Cedar Balls take up little room and are perfect to leave in coat pockets year-round to make your closet smell fresh. Avoid placing balls directly on clothes – the wood's oils may leave a stain.

Do Cedar Balls absorb moisture?
Another plus of cedar is its ability to absorb moisture in the air. As you know, moisture causes mold and mildew, which can be disastrous for your wardrobe and closet. Cedar can act as a natural dehumidifier, thereby eliminating mold and mildew. In addition, aromatic cedar balls bring a fresh outdoorsy fragrance into your home.

Ways to get rid of moths?
