Night of the Moth

Unusually HOT night last night, but that wasn't the only thing unusual! I woke up about 4:00 AM this morning because I was too hot to sleep. Got up and turned on the Swampie and ran it until about 5:30 until it cooled down enough for me to get back to sleep. During the time I was up I had the fly swatter in hand, but it wasn't to swat flies it was to swat moths. They were everywhere and evidently they aren't just attracted to light, but must also be attracted to body heat because they were swarming around me. I think I must have swatted 40 or 50 of them and there are still plenty in here for me to swat now. Just swatted about another 5. Not sure what the heck brought them here unless it was the heat and I still don't know how in the heck they got in here??? The flies are still bad and now moths. I wonder what next?

  1. You must be a shining light in the desert then...?

    Perhaps it's the x-rays you've been exposed to at the border?

  3. Just LEDs Dani, The LEDs shouldn't attract them, but evidently they do. Maybe the x-rays are driving them down here? Or maybe the fires are???

    Can I borrow the dogs tonight Frann? ;)

  6. The view looks good without the dungeon in the way, don't think that'll be to hard to get used to, either. I could only guess that maybe the fires are driving the moth's your way, how are they all getting in? Hope ya don't melt today and they aren't as bad tonight.

  7. Dale, yes the view is much better without the dungeon there.

    I don't know how the moths got in here unless they all came in while I had the door and screen open going out and coming in last night. There would have sure had to be a lot of them coming in at one time though.
