    We see a lot of Five Spot Burnets in the local park. Not as elaborate as some of their kind but they look spectacular on the wing. I also assume they're all goths.

    If anyone was wondering how Moths hatch, this fascinating documentary film reveals all.

    You can see a snake head in my cecropia moth photo, too. Follow the wing to its tip.

    Snake!

    That top one looks like he's about to tell a story.

    I believe only a very small number of moth species eat wool. Would love to know which ones...

    Probably this guy. He’s not even trying to hide it.

    Tineola bisselliella aka The Common Clothes Moth: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tineola_bisselliella

    It's actually the larvae that do the damage.

    Thanks, very useful: I can show this to my wife so we don't have to take wild swipes at any kind of moth.

    That looks very similar to a Cinnabar moth.

    Our locals have tried to turn my rather expensive Merino underwear into string vests.

    I tried those organic traps but they just don't work. The carpet's going for a nylon (yuk) one or a wooden floor.

    We ended up using this:
    Carpet Moth Killer - Kills Moth - 1 litre https://amzn.eu/d/0lv0Lti :(

    We garden organically.

    My gran used to make lavender bags to put in with our clothes - I never thought about why!

    I only have to smell lavender and I'm back in her static caravan in Clacton On Sea, sandwiched in a blanket on the sofa, drifting off to sleep...

    Fortunately for me the Towers is infested with Picasso moths. When they have eaten their Cubist designs into the carpet I cut it into squares, frame them and sell them for a fortune.
