Destroy is the best thing for these destructive creatures....grrrrrr
And here I was thinking he was just an interesting moth with an Aeroplane named after him!!! He looks as innocent as all the other moths - but looks are obviously deceiving!!! Thanks warbler for the info.Sorry Deborah :)))Thanks Meadowhawk :))
Trouble here on the Wet Coast, too. But, I love his antennae!! :)
He's kinda creepy looking! Yikes!
I've never heard of that, Surreal_Heidi. I'd like to know more. On the East Coast, they are deforesting and killing huge tracts of mostly oak forest. Hundreds of thousands of acres. They've been a serious problem for some years. They have been a big problem in the Blue Ridge Mountains and are very hard to try to control. They eat many species of trees as a catepillar but mostly oaks. US Forest Service has spent millions of dollars trying to stop them. I've driven through miles of dead forset in Pennsylvania and Virginia.
Well - that's very interesting Heidi!! I never knew! I've just been Googling to find out how it affects horses & I'll have to dig a bit deeper - can't find much with a quick search.
Boo.... Hiss..... Boo! This is the most hated insect, or even creature, in Kentucky. They're responsible for thousands of lost foals and lost mare pregnancies.
