On Thursday night, over 12 hours of 125 watts burning bright yielded just one March Moth...hardly stellar and considering that it wasn't that cold with no wind and complete cloud cover, I was a bit surprised.
Last night however things did improve finally with 5 moths. Well 4 and a half moths. On inspecting the trap at 9pm before going to bed, there were no moths (something i'm getting use to) I did however scan the fence panels around the immediate trapping area and noticed how many Spiders there were, one had a cocoon with something in it.
'I bet it was a moth' I said and lo and behold it was a year first Hebrew Character, still fresh and not crispy.
Every night now I will have to dust the trapping area to remove all of these cobwebs that keep antagonising my moths.
Last year I had two garden first both succumb to these 8 legged menaces. Both Eyed Hawk-moth and Early Moth!
Anyway enough rambling on, here is my recent catches.
