Moth season

It is miller moth season which means swarms of the adult army cutworm moths are visiting our wildflowers. They don't like daylight so will hide in dark crevices which means that they frequently accidentally wind up inside.

While they are harmless, at night there can be so many that they keep us awake as they fly against the window in an attempt to get out to go feed. The best way to get rid of them is to hang a light over a bowl of soapy water. We empty the bowl daily and it doesn't seem to make a dent in the population.

This is not a miller moth, just a BIG one
