Insect infestations in vehicle upholstery

How have people treated insect infestations in vehicle upholstery?
I have encountered an infestation of case making clothes moths in
the woollen upholstery of a 1910 Daimler.  The seats are removable
so will be able to be treated in the freezer, but what about the
other woollen components that can not be removed from the vehicle? I
am keen to know your experiences with this or a similar problem.
