Moths Are Taking Over the Panhandle
or at least that it is how it seems. All weekend long I noticed moths everywhere. In my kitchen, in my laundry room, in my bedroom, on the patio, in the garage. It didn't matter where I went in my house I found moths. Moths hovering around my light fixtures, running into the windows, they were everywhere. As if a light would recharge their energy like the sun does for Superman.
Unfortunately, from what I have read and heard we are stuck with the moths, that is until they die. Why all the moths? Well apparently the moth infestation is because we had a mild winter.
So what do we do about the moths? Well there really isn't much you can do, they just have to run their cycle.
Unfortunately, since there isn't much you can do to get rid of the moths here are a few things you can do to try to keep them at bay.
Pick up some pheromone traps at your local store. The pheromones attract the moths they fly into the traps and get stuck on the sticky stuff.
Fill a bucket with a little bit of water and place under a light the moths have a tendency to fall into the water and drown.
Change out your outside lights to the yellow bug lights to keep the moths to a minimum.
Purchase a hand held bug zapper.
Vacuum or swat the moths to remove from your home.
You probably don't want to give the moths free rein of your home or you might notice that your favorite shirt has a big giant hole in it.
