    The Mystery of the Moths

    Running a route in rual Az. I occasionally run into the question of moths in a closet. Customers will find a sweater or dress with tiny holes but no sign of the culprit. Is there a simple solution and I don't mean moth balls or a cedar chest. Can one just fumigate the closet and then air out the cloths? Help.
