More Mothing Setups

Here is my setup in my backyard. The sheet is in the rear of the photo.I use a Bioquip 175W Mercury Vapor Light and a ballast I bought through an ad in the News of the Lepidopterist’s Society and run it off of an outlet by the deck. I have a typical 1\3 acre suburban NJ residential yard. Lots of big oaks, but the neighborhood is completely surrounded by development. Nonetheless, I’m always amazed by the biodiversity in such a small residential setting. (Dave Moskowitz – New Jersey)


I squished an over ripe golden petite plum on the wall a little by the porch light to see what would happen. The juice is on the left side of the light. (Howard Pirtle -Washington)
