John Beetham is a moth’er in Central NJ and a NMW supporter through his ‘A DC Birding Blog‘. John sent us a picture of his mothing setup and a description: I use a 13-watt CFL blacklight (which I think is a 60-watt-equivalent in terms of brightness) clipped to a tripod and projected on a white sheet draped over a latticework fence. I set it up a little before sunset and then take it down whenever I get too tired to stay up longer (usually around midnight, but I’ll go later if mothing is really productive).
