Are we looking at a full-on Silence Of The Lambs moth breeding situation here?
You may not think of Spring as "moth season" but it is. Moths chill through the winter months, eating through your available fabrics, only to emerge as winged warriors of death during the Spring and Summer.
All of this was brought to my attention by a friend who opened up his garage only to be greeted by hundreds if not thousands of moths. He then went to get some items for prevention (moth bars, which are not as delicious as the sound) only to find out that Walmart had sold out of them.
Shortly after he related this story to me, I left to go to the store, and on my front porch...you guessed it, moths, included one fairly huge one that I named "Mothra".
All of this begs the question, is the activity more than usual, or is this just the phenomenon known as red car/blue car syndrome, where I now notice every moth that I wouldn't have noticed before? Nope, it's real, and all it takes is for one to land in your sweet tea glass to realize, yes, this is a problem.
What we all need to take away from this is how destructive these moths can be. I never really thought of them as a "pest", I always thought they just "were", but moths have to eat, and what they're eating is the stuff you have in storage. If you notice an infestation of moths, you can bet something nearby has a bunch of moth holes in it.
The good news is, that moth season is short. Moths usually go away 2-4 weeks after you start spotting them. The bad news is they then go lay eggs to a new generation who you'll have to deal with next Spring.
