I read that too --- but this is Oregon Big Grin it is always raining Big Grin

Maybe some sort of container would keep the rain off the mothballs, but still let the smell out.

I'd be concerned that the dog might eat the moth balls. Dogs eat strange things sometimes. A container might help that, too.

One wild critter that is not put off by moth crystals is a squirrel. Sad We have both gray squirrels and the brown variety that scamper all over the place eating veggies when they were first coming up - sure wish there was an effective deterrent for squirrels to keep them from the garden.

You would think we live in the woods or in a meadow connected to the woods, but its an old '70s suburban tract home mecca....

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

We have the same type situation where we live. About a mile to the south you will find I90 tollway and just to the north there is a 4 lane highway frequented by all sorts of traffic including 18 wheelers, motorcycles, pickup trucks and passenger cars. East and west of us are cornfields and soybean fields. When it becomes absolutely necessary to dispose of a wild critter (as when it is obviously sick) we use the firearm. One cannot do that on a daily basis however.

It's all of the moisture and greenery and adaptation.

This thread reminds me of the story about a blind skunk who fell in love with a fart.
