As Luc says, it's not so much the treading at fault as how you do the graphics.

Moth balls clear the label to white after painting themselves - so depending on the exact timing, you might be left with a white screen for longer than you anticipate - hence the flickering.

e.g.

Ball 1 draws itself and waits 100ms before blanking the background. Meanwhile Ball 2 is drawing itself - if it has just finished drawing ball 2 when ball 1 clears the screen, then it's only visible for a short time.

I haven't read the article to which Luc referred - but I think you should rethink how you're doing this entirely (of course, if you're just playing with threads, then the graphics doesn't matter).

The way I tend to do it is to keep track of the time, and the velocity of my object(s). Then the object calculates where it needs to be drawn depending on what time it is now.

Loop
   ForEach(Ball ball in Balls)
   {
      //calculate the new position given current position, velocity and elapsed time
   }

   DrawTheBackground();

   ForEach(Ball ball in Balls)
   {
      //Draw the ball at its current position
   }
End Loop


Now you could also think about double or triple buffering (which may improve matters, but the above will get you what I think you want better than using individual threads for each object.

You can also do it with threads, of course - but I would suggest updating the object's position in a thread - and keep a separate process to draw everything.
