NMW Event – Gene Hardy in Arkansas

Gene Hardy is hosting a National Moth Week event in Arkansas. Here’s what he has to say about mothing in Arkansas:

“In Arkansas, no trap is necessary – just a porch light! Still, I’m planning to make a trap to celebrate Moth Week. Just a box, with some egg cartons and a light; nothing fancy. The variety here is impressive, thanks to the warm weather I guess. It’s a jungle, a bug paradise! The cicadas are deafening, the hymenoptera threatening, and the sialia fat and almost sassy. Our moths can mimic anything, and are occasionally enormous.
