    I’m using my yard. I’ve had Tiger Moths, some long-antennaed species and mixture of micros and larger species I’m still trying to sort out.

  2. We have been thoroughly enjoying Moth Week. It’s great. I (Melissa) have been teaching my daughter (Amethyst who is five years old.) all about Moths & Metamorphosis. We’re happy to be apart of your page and to see all of your findings.

    Growing the large, beautiful, North American silk moths are one of my favorite summer hobbies. Observing the life cycle of fantastic species like the cecropia is always a joy. I release hundreds into the wild but the mortality rate for these
    wonders of nature is extreme. The big problem are the insect parasitoids such as tachinid flies, that have decimated the local populations. Another, is the anti-environmental trend of landscapers who promote desertification with their chemical lawn, monoculture practices. The loss of fallen leaves, some of which contain cocoons has led to much devastation. Lastly, light pollution lures adult moths to where they can’t breed or into traffic to become our smallest roadkills. Habitat restoration is the only hope for the future of these magnificant wildlife species.
