We are having a moth invasion. Got up at about 5am to let dogs out for a minute and when I opened the door there were a couple a dozen of the little cutworm moths waiting to come in. Of course I had turned on the light near the door so I could make sure I didn't let any of our 4 cats out. I sure did let in more moths than I wanted by turning on that light. One would have been to many.
And when the cats see a moth they go wild trying to catch it. They will do about anything to catch it, including going over, under, or through any thing in the house that is in their way. Things sitting on counters or tables may go flying when the cats knock them off chasing moths.
These cutworm moths seem to do their invasion attacks about every 8 years or so it seems to me. I seem to remember it happening in about 2006 or 7 and in 1996 or 7, and now. They are a nuisance to people, but food for lots of birds. But the worms that the moths produce eat a lot of vegetation. They cutworms are found around the base of trees and bushes a lot and can do damage to them.
Everytime I open the door to the hay shed hundreds fly out. Same with the garage door. My friend frequently leaves for work before dawn and said there were thousands maybe millions around each light down the streets.
Hope this doesn't last long.
