My numbers are finally diminishing. Last night set this trap.
1. Dollar Store basket with open grid so I could plug in nightlight through it.
2. Cardboard paint bucket w Blue Dawn soapy water
3. Built up pedestal to keep basket even with nitelite. Pedestal = lg Quaker Oats tube + 2 local phone books

We had a bird in our open garage today picking off moths. Last evening there was a blue jay eating them at our open slider upstairs. I open up windows my husband took the screens off of and they exit as soon as we start to loose light in the rooms they are in. It’s all inside the addition portion. My two cats take care of any that might stray into the occupied portion of our home. My male cat goes into the addition and has a field day catching and playing with them. He is a genuine hunter except there isn’t much “hunting” to do with hundreds of moths. I kept the garage closed to him. They are indoor cats only unless in a harness and on a long retractable leash. The moths die out indoors too.
Sometimes I put a bright light outside one of our open sliders upstairs. It helps. Whatever it takes to get them to leave.

Wish I had flattened the curve (with the bucket trapz) before RAGE SMASHING all those moths against the walls where they left moth smudge balls.

Is this a Moonridge thing? Seems like everyone experiencing this is in Moonridge. We've had the house 7 years, never seen them before.

I think KK is in East Sugarloaf. But most are in upper MoonRidge.
