mothball mess

(WTLV) Neighbors in one Jacksonville, Florida community say they’re fed up with an annoying and smelly situation.

Hundreds of mothballs line one woman’s driveway. She says it’s to repel animals from her yard, her neighbors argue it’s a ridiculous move that they believe is a health hazard.

“It started off with just a few and now it’s got over 400 or more,” said Dana Nicol.

Hundreds of mothballs, some bagged, others loose and a good amount of them are crushed into the pavement of Nicol’s neighbors driveway.

“She drives back and forth and crushes them up with her car to make them stink even more,” said Nicol.

According to the National Pesticide Information Center, mothballs are not intended to be used outdoors. Its ingredients can contaminate plants, water supplies, harm wildlife and contribute to air pollution.
