    I've always heard that cedar is a good repellant. You could get cedar shavings, like for pet bedding, and put them in hosiery/knee highs. Tie them off and throw them wherever you need them.

    Of course, if anyone sells herbal repellant, use that instead of, or in addition to, the cedar. [​IMG]

    How about keep the bag sealed with a bale cord or something. I do that and have never had a problem with moths getting into my fleeces but I store them indoors. Even the sheep wool I used to store in the barn as long as the bags were sealed I never had a problem. Only once with a bag that was ripped and that was the only time.

    Hope this helps.
