Abstract:Paradichlorobenzene and naphthalene, used in small quantities in a room of average size, were of no practical value as repellents against larvae of the webbing clothes moth, Tineola biselliella. In tests with each of these insecticides, more than one-half of the larvae concerned remained for two days within six inches of the material and were apparently uninjured.
