Buying a home sometimes mean planning home renovations and updates. When we bought our home, we planned for some changes to the kitchen. I am a sucker for dark wood and all my furniture consists of it, the only thing that didn't hold up to my taste was our kitchen cabinets. We looked high and low for fairly inexpensive ways to go about this. Replacing the cabinets was not necessary since they are oak, besides, that would have cost us our first born! We looked into re-facing them, which is replacing the cabinet doors. That was also more than we wanted to spend since we would have to get them custom made to fit. We finally decided on re-staining the doors. Re-staining was a 3 day process and required the kids and I would to leave for a few days. Three days was nothing for my love of dark wood! So, the kids and I packed up and stayed at Grandma's house for a bit.
The cabinets turned out beautiful and were just what I'd wanted. But, just as soon as we finished oohing and ahhing over our new kitchen, something else caught our eye. We noticed that we had moths everywhere, in our bedrooms, in our bathroom and in the kitchen. Having never seen a moth in our new house before now, we could only deduce that the moths had come into our home via the cabinet doors which had been stained in a warehouse.
On any other occasion, I would have been panicking. Fortunately, I had ordered my sample pack of the Stay Away® natural pest prevention line just a week before! A pouch of Stay Away® Moths was placed in each of my problem rooms and less than a week later I had zero moths in my house! Stay Away® Moths sure saved me the extra hassle it takes to hunt down each moth. Is it weird to say I am looking forward to an ant infestation to try out Stay Away® Ants?
Editor's Note: With nearly 11,000 different species of moths in the United States alone, finding and testing a solution for all of them is very difficult. Stay Away® Moths is intended for use preventing and controlling clothing moths, but was also effective in this situation.
