Sometimes you can find it as moth balls, but sometimes the moth balls are napthalene, so make sure it's the right kind.

I prefer Certan (Bt).  It doesn't smell, isn't a carcinagen (like PDB, and it's basically permanat as far as getting rid of wax moths.

Buy it here:

Read about it here:

Search for "Certan" or "Bt"

Great news,this is the first time I have heard of BT control for waxmoths,and it sure sounds permanent compared to freezing.When I would freeze the combs,sometimes they would become reinfested if I could not store them in the freezer.personally never used paradichlorobenzine, because like you said Michael the benzenes are carcinogens.
