If the place they are put is hot or humid, mothballs can melt.

Mothballs evaporate. If you get one of those big chunky ones with its own embedded hanger and hang it in a closet, you can see it shrink every day. They just evaporate into thin air. The chemicals in them are very dangerous. You should try not to breath them. You're better off using lavender or cedar to repel moths.

It did not evaporate,it sublimate.
Sublimation --- Solid to gas
Evaporation --- Liquid to gas

Mothballs evaporate. But I would advise you to use something else, as they are so toxic and the smell permeates the closet and is an awful stench.
