Most insect infestations can be eradicated by sealing the object in
an oxygen-free chamber or plastic envelope for a short (2-4 weeks)
period of time. More information on anoxic treatment kits (barrier
film envelopes and sachets of oxygen-scavenger) is available at our
web site: <URL:> and there's lots of archived
discussion on CoOL.
