Hi, Sally. What a great article. I never thought about a moth trail before, but now that sounds like a marvelous idea! We have had hummingbird moths in our yard for some years and I always enjoy seeing them. Now I'll be looking for some of those brightly colored moths pictured here and out prowling my yard at night. The neighbors truly will think I've gone over the edge: "Now she's out there at night with that camera!" Ah, well, it's a magnificent madness.
Thanks for your comments. I hope you get good results on your moth trail. (As they say, results may vary) ! But there are so many moths in BugFiles submitted by DGers, somebody out there is having good luck.
I later read a variation on the moth trail called a wine rope--take a thick cotton rope and soak it in your "juice" and hang it. Yep, they will really think we're nuts with these things hanging around; maybe we need to put a bell on the end or something for decoration...
Anyway, glad to know others have fun finding "new insects"!
