Miller Moths Infest Portions of Lubbock
Moths are taking over my side of Lubbock. Moths are everywhere and I can not remember once in the past that I’ve seen this many moths at once. I guess you would call it an infestation. The moths are so bad that we can not open doors during the evening more than a second before hundreds and even thousands of moths rush in towards the lights. Its one of the most incredible things to watch. It’s much like when the monarch butterflies return each year only nastier. Starting off as cut worms, these Miller Moths are quite large and the cats love to chase and eat them. According to the experts they are only supposed to stick around for a week or two once they’ve turned into adult moths. What they are look for are the mountain ranges, and from Lubbock, that’s a pretty long way to have to fly. Stand by, if you haven’t seen more than a couple of moths so far, you will.
