We placed the moth balls around the perimeter of our garden this summer and it seemed to work. Only problem is that once it rains, you have to replace the moth balls too.
I read that too --- but this is Oregon it is always raining
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.
