    :laugh: 15 minutes to go, then i'm home!

    I was actually thinking this the other night when we had a moth in the front rom and I wanted to go to bed. I had to turn the light off in the front room and rush to the open door, with light filtering through it, in an effort to beat the moth.

    It won! :mad:

    You may laugh, but the thing flew around my head as I was walking up the stairs, a bit disconcerting when you've had a few! :eek:

    Man to barman: "I keep thinking I'm a moth"
    Barman: "There's a psychiatrist's next door - why don't you go there?"
    Man: I was going to, but your light was on"

    :rolleyes: :hiya:

    Did you know that its not the light that attracts the moths, but the heat?

    :confused: I thought it was because most species used moonlight to mate and meet? Artificial light confuses them.

    Some moths don't like light. So in answer to your question- No. ;)
