Similarly, what kind of animals do mothballs keep away? Mothballs or moth crystals are not to be used in open areas where the vapors can be inhaled by people. There are commercial repellent products available that contain naphthalene and sulfur and that have labels that do allow their use to repel rodents, snakes, raccoons, skunks, squirrels, bats, woodpeckers, and others.

How does mothball work?
Whether the mothballs you are using contain naphthalene or paradichlorobenzene, the mothballs will sublimate. Upon undergoing sublimation, these mothballs will go from a solid to a gas, and release fumes. These fumes are toxic to moths and moth larvae, and should kill them or deter them from the area.
