Thanks so much for this article. Most people won't kill butterflies, and some even care for their caterpillars, but Moths still don't get the same respect. Thanks for helping them out a bit. They are just as important as butterflies and some are even as pretty. Helping the Moths out at night with pollination are the bats. Without the Moths and bats many night blooming flowers wouldn't get their pollination chores done.

Thanks again from me and all the Moths out there. :)

starsplitter and moths- You're quite welcome. I read a lot of interesting things while researching this article, starting with that fact that moths are much more plentiful than butterflies (species number) I have a new respect for moths. Glad you enjoyed it!
