Default Moths - Looking for a Good Time...



This is a photograph of moths that were looking for a good time.

The pink square contains synthetic moth sex hormone, the card is coated with super sticky glue. The moths fly in, get stuck in the glue, and there they stay.

This one is called BioCare, and is made by Springstar.net

I got mine in a big box store in the pest department. It contains nothing that can harm you, unless you happen to be a moth.

One caution: don't think that if one of these is good, four of them would be 4 times as good. Your home could become a moth sex-hormone beacon to every moth in the area who is to have a good time.

Ask me how I know...

It is only appropriate if you have a moth problem.

If you have a moth problem, it is an excellent product, as it intercepts mating moths before they have a chance to reproduce.

It contains no toxic substance.

I do not understand the problem with the moths. I understand killing mosquitoes and other pests.

I happen to live in a part of the country where moths are a problem. They lay eggs which hatch out into larvae, and the larvae will eat anything that is made of wool. I own many clothes that are made of wool. I like these clothes. When moth larvae eat my wool clothes it make me not like moths, so I try to kill them.

You do not have this problem.

You live in a place where you do have a problem with mosquitoes. They probably bite you and drink your blood. It makes you not like mosquitoes.

I live in a place where mosquitoes are not a problem.

Do you understand now?

Ah, now I get it. I was not thinking of the caterpillars, only the moths.
