    This is very helpful info! Can you please send me the resources you cited saying that it is a federal offense to put down mothballs? There is a guy in my neighborhood who goes around “treating” people’s yards for them with “moth crystals” Because he tells them it will keep rattlesnakes away!! He is the worst!! Now a bunch of people are having issues with their oak trees losing leaves and I bet it is related!
    Thank you so much!

    I am recovering from SnakeAway that one next door neighbor used five months ago and from mothballs the other next door neighbor used six weeks ago in their yards to “deter snakes!” THESE PRODUCTS ARE HORRIFIC! The odor is still present on my azaleas, and every time I am in my back yard, I can STILL get headaches and dizziness from the odor. My husband has tried to find all the mothballs and dispose of them after my neighbor failed to retrieve all of them. The pest control man who spread the SnakeAway in 100 degree in July heat acknowledged that some people are affected, but would not attempt to vacuum up the pellets (and neither would the neighbor who has since moved). My family and I were the ones exposed to this stuff for weeks. My organic garden is ruined because of the runoff from their yard. And, the yard crews in my neighborhood are still spreading this junk. I am livid that these products are still on the market and used so carelessly. Why do people live near the woods or ponds if they are petrified of snakes?

    I have researched this as well as contacted universities that study pesticides and nobody could tell me for sure if the chemicals in mothballs trans locate into fruit. You would think with all the nutty studies that have been done a study about this often used garden solution would have been done at some time. There is no conclusive evidence that I have found either way. If you Google it, you will see some that say it won’t and some that say it might, but no data to back it up. One “expert” wouldn’t give me his opinion but told me the chemicals like to evaporate and probably wouldn’t make it to the roots. I’d really like to know.
