Fourteen moths in the pan this morning. Thanks for the tip.

Man, these guys are a pest.

We were in Sioux Falls, SD, week of the 21st. Killed about 50 a day for week til we left. Not so bad now in SE Nebraska.

Way too many for the cats to keep up with. Pheromone traps were worthless. Two traps, no moths in them.

Had to finally keep all lights off, and swat them as they landed on the television.

We were infested in 2004. Not sure where we picked them up but the reappeared annually until 2008. They must have left eggs and subsequent hatches kept them going.

PITA. They would emerge just when we went to bed and dive bomb until they had all been vacuumed up. I got pretty good at picking them out off the air.

Wretched excess is just barely enough.
