Cedarwood releases aromatic compounds that naturally protect against and repel:
- fish moths/silver fish
- An array of other insects
Why cedar wood
- Beautiful, fresh, natural fragrance
- Non-toxic and natural as opposed to poisonous moth balls and insecticides which could be carcinogenic
- Repels instead of killing insects so you won't have dead insects to contend with
- Antibacterial and antifungal
- Last for years (which makes them economical too)
- Pet friendly
- Eco-friendly – cedar wood is not endangered
The average lifespan of American Red Cedar trees is 150 years (with a potential lifespan of 850 years) and their antibacterial and insect repelling propeties are one of the secrets to their longevity, making them resistant to insects like termites, fungus or bacteria.
How to use them
- Use 1 hanging block per 60cm of wardrobe
To reactivate your cedar wood, simply sandpaper them with fine grit sandpaper every 6 – 12 months.
Did you know? Mothballs are practically 100% active ingredient made either of naphthalene or paradichlorobenzene. Exposure to these insecticides can have a negative impact on your health as these turn slowly from solids to toxic vapour, which results in you essentially inhaling insecticides or them being absorbed into your clothes and linen. They are also dangerous for children and pets who may chew or eat them, even one moth ball can make a child very sick.
