Default Effects of Mothballs on Flies?

I was just wondering if any of you had a thought on the use of moth balls for long time storage of spare flies and or fly tying material?

Default Re: Effects of Mothballs on Flies?

a shop in NC that I have bought flies at on occasion uses moth balls in the cases. the case has a clear glass lid on it and when you lift it up, it's a pretty powerful smell. I don't think it would have any negative effect other than the smell, and you can smell it on the fly long after it's removed from the case. I actually like the smell, but I believe most people hate it. maybe you could tie up some scary patterns that would just keep the moths at bay.
