Natural Pest Deterrent
Occasionally mice, moths or other insects make their way into a tack trunk to set up house. To help deter these crawling pests from entering your storage space, stick a couple cedar wood blocks, cedar balls or cedar-filled sachets into your tack trunk alongside your horse blankets or other gear. Natural cedar oil in the wood helps repel pests as long as the cedar scent remains strong. Cedar pest deterrents are available at hardware and home stores and should be replaced regularly.
