Do you reckon that moths are scared of the dark?
I take it your quite bored at the moment steve
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.
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!
So, are they scared of the dark or what??
No idea- my cat eats them well before they ever get near a light.
When I see one next, I'll ask it
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"
Did you know that its not the light that attracts the moths, but the heat?
I thought it was because most species used moonlight to mate and meet? Artificial light confuses them.
I'm pretty certain i read somewhere it was the heat...i'll google it!
Guess we're both right
should they not all fly towrads the sun then?
I can imagine them now, all flying up intothe atmosphere and going 'pfft' as they reach it
Some moths don't like light. So in answer to your question- No.
The buggers always go for my display, just when your sat there all nice and comfy a bloody moth decides to sit in the middle of your screen.
