Reader Question: Wool and Moths

Photos by Salt Water New England
A reader has the following question:
Greetings, 
I’m currently struggling to control a clothes moth issue (old house, many hiding places, they are probably feasting on a dead mouse behind a wall somewhere...). What measures do you take to rid moths and keep them out?   
I grew up in the age of synthetics and I don’t think we had a single wool item in our house.  I’m learning quickly of the many mistakes I have made in my household in regard to the wool items I’ve purchased or brought home from antique stores. Any advice or suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated.
