Mothballs and martinis are like breasts;
one is too few and three are too many.

I like to have a martini, two at the very most. After three I'm under the table, after four I'm under my host.

Tee many tarmoonies, Dot.

Mothballs have many uses. I had a skunk move into the crawl space under my office once, with the expected complications.
Long story short, two boxes of mothballs scattered around the space ran my skunk off. I still had to contend with the naptha smell but there are worse things.

I once sprinkled moth balls down tunnels to repel/kill the moles that were creating an underground transit system in our yard. The next day I found the tunnels still there with rings of moth balls around the entrances.
Cats are still the best way to get rid of moles.

Moth balls are made of napthalene (not so much, anymore), or para-dichlorobenzene. I bet I know which one Para mothballs are made of...

Still funny, though.

Mothball/martinis - Whatever you do, do NOT, mix the two up.
