So, this moth thing.

I've taken the temporary measures I can take. I've ordered airtight underbed storage bins. They will be delivered tomorrow. My current plans are, tomorrow, to bake all the yarn at 200 for half an hour or so, put it into the airtight bins, throw in some sachets of cedar chips, vacuum like crazy, and put the bins under the bed.

I am twitching to get started on this, but I don't have the bins yet, and I'm supposed to be on a date with [personal profile] danceboy tonight. (Hi sweetie! We're going to have an *awesome* time!)

They also sell straight cedar oil spray where the oil is dissolved in alcohol. This, I'm told, has the advantage of actually killing larvae if the spray comes in direct contact with the larvae.
Good luck!!!

UGH

This is a yarn crafter's biggest fears...the moth. I have most of my yarn in plastic storage bins, and was looking into upgrading to plastic drawers from The Container Store.

I hope they haven't nibbled anything yet!

Maybe you should go on a romantic date to the Container Store!

Good luck. *hug*

I'm now picturing DL watching you take the yarn out of the oven and saying, "I don't LIKE yarn!! I want taquitoes! No I want green pasta!"
