Re: Does cedar repel wax moths, beetles, mites ect
It is only the heart wood that has the toxins to repel pests. The rest of the wood is no better than pine. If you like the look then go for it but if the lumber is just slabbed off it won't last any longer than pine. The bees are going to propolise the inside. That would be like you taking your cedar chest and putting polyurethane on the inside. I don't recommend that if you are trying to keep the moths out.
