I have the solution for Your books. We use Ageless, an oxygen
adsorber to save and clean Your books. You have to put your books in
a package together with Ageless and after 10 days all insects, mold
etc. at any level (pupae, larvae, adult, egg) will be eliminated.
You don't need to make vacuum, You don't need pesticides. If you
want we can make the service or supply you the equipment/material.
Please contact us. Best Regards,
