I would use nothing but freezing, or Certan (see link refered to above), but if you really WANT to use something, DON'T buy regular moth balls.  Make sure that the active ingredient is Paradichlorobenzene.  Some of them are.  But many are Naphalene and that is bad (illegal, unapproved, unhealthy for the bees, unhealthy for people, etc. etc. etc.)
