First night blacklighting
With the burst of warm weather we had last week I decided to set up my sheet and blacklight outside my apartment. It snowed this morning so the weather has changed a little bit, but for a few nights I was getting a lot of moths! It made me realize just how much work I have left to do before I’m ready to really tackle collecting moths and caterpillars for my research this summer. Looks like the field season will be starting early for a lot of entomologists.
So far it’s a pretty big moth turnout for the end of March in Connecticut.
