                I asked our resident bug guy and he said.


                “PDB is the best, but next to that No-Pest strips cut up are supposed to be reliable.“


Hope this helps.

Hi All. We have an insect collection contained in wooden boxes housed in a large steel cabinet. We want to protect them from being degraded during long term storage. I am seeking DCHAS wisdom for alternatives to the traditional use of p-dichlorobenzene and/or naphthalene-based "moth balls" for this function. I will be grateful for your suggestions.
