Enoz Moth ballsWe were thinking today, as we killed a nasty Florida cucaracha, that we admired Enoz fly swatters. Enoz is also America’s classic brand for moth balls. To buy some, click on Enoz Cedar Pine Moth Balls, and Amazon will serve some up.

The Enoz brand was originally made by the Enoz Chemical company of Chicago; it shows up in newspapers just after World War II. In 1954, the brand was sold to Edison Chemical. To many Americans, the smell is the smell of winter’s end and winter’s arrival.

By the 1970s, it was part of St. Louis-based Irwin Willert, and today Enoz is still owned by the company.

Their website says Willert Home Products was established in 1946 by August W. Willert Jr. and George C. Irwin. The first factory was located in East St. Louis, Il.

The facility occupied 6,000 square feet of space and employed nine. Mr. Bill Willert is the owner and president with over 500,000 square feet of space and 250 employees.

The corporate office is still in St. Louis with facilities in Henderson, NV and Kenova, WV.

  1. Hi, I was just wondering about a fly swatter I purchased back some time ago. It is shaped like the head of a dog. And have not seen them anymore. Just wondering if there is somewhere to purchase them and are there any other shapes of dogs. I am with the humane society here and think it would be a good product for a fund raiser. Thanks for any info you may have. Lisa
