There is not a single live moth in sight this morning. The trap in the pantry has so many moths stuck in it that they are impossible to count. Good work, Dr. Killigan.

Got us 2 traps a few weeks ago and cleaned out a bunch of stuff in the pantry.  It's amazing where those little critters can crawl into.  Down to only seeing a few flying around ever since.  I think there's an end in sight.  Our trap's brand name is Pro-Pest Pantry Moth and Beetle Trap.

I guess it is time for you to celebrate with a mothless  Molson ( say that 3 times fast ). You better start taking vitamins to replace all the moth protein your diet will be lacking.  ;D ;D

That's pretty funny. I have had a couple Molson's tonight and I sure can't say it three times fast!  :D

The way I understand it, these traps are supposed to attract male moths. Either we had a major shortage of lady moths or our lady moths were "do-funnies" (my father's term).  :D

Checked a trap tonight and there is a stink bug stuck in there. Do they eat insects or something?

Not that I know of, but they're stupid enough to blunder into a trap of water.  They do a lot of damage to fruit and vegetables, so I've assumed that's their food of choice.
