Mid-Summer Moth WatchSeptember 14, 2018
University of Arkansas entomologists will attract night-flying moths using bright white lights and black (ultraviolet) lights. As the moths are attracted to the lights they will light on a large white background suitable for photos. We’ll supplement the lights with a fruit and sugar mixture designed to attract moths in to our local area. It’ll be a great night to get acquainted with moths we don’t often see because of their later flight times. Bring cameras, insect books for moth identification and a healthy curiosity about the moths of the night!
