In answer to Killer's query, "Very small tweezers!"
In answer to the original question, very small Lasers. Or a number of small land mines. Or go down to Harbor Freight and get on of their " Mice-O-Matic

Just trying to be helpful'

Actually Booth Boy is only partially right, the hard part was to get them close I put up a real well lit sign..."Free Vasectomy's to All Moths"...I couldn't believe all the moths that flocked to the sign at night and must have wanted vasectomy's....thousands of them. They knew what they where getting into and I took full advantage.

I heard that moth balls have a distinctive matter how hard I tried, I couldn't smell a thing.

10 years ago when I lived in Ohio I'd bag my cars in the winter. I bought mine from AutoJacket, Carbag - Protective jackets for your car or motorcycle They are $200-$300 but compared to re-wiring and re-upholstering your car that isn't to pricey.

I'd drive over the bag (sounds painful) pull the battery, throw some "Bounce" dryer sheets in the interior, trunk, and under the hood, add desiccant bags in the interior and under the car, put on the soft "California Car Cover", and then zip the bag over the car (still sounds painful).

It worked great.

Now that I live in a semi arid climate I follow the same procedure but I don't use the bag anymore. (not driving over my bag anymore is much better).

Dryer sheets did not work for me. I had to go to mothballs. The smell was gone in a month or so...
