Where Can I Buy Mothballs in Poland?

I have been to several hypermarkets and a pharmacy but I don't see mothballs anywhere, just little packets of something else to hang in closets. I suspect the problem may be that they are not sold due to concerns about children eating them and poisoning themselves. I am specifically looking for dichlorobenzene (AKA para-dichlorobenzene, p-dichlorobenzene, pDCB, or PDB, which is also used in urinal cake) rather than naphthalene balls. Can someone please suggest where I can find this?

Please help keep my stored clothes free of moths and mold!

There are many different products and while in shop ask for "środek przeciw molom'

Yes, there are many different products for sale in the shops, but none of them are moth balls. What is for sale is little packages for hanging in the closest, or sprays. I suspect that there is a product liability issue which explains why old-fashioned moth balls aren't easy to find. They must be for sale somewhere. Maybe a janitorial supply wholesaler has them?
