A female Imperial Moth let me pick her up from my porch walkway today. First time I have seen one! Philadelphia, PA August 10, 2017
My daughter and I just saw one of these in our yard. They look poisonous! We live outside Knoxville,Tn. We will wear shoes outside from now on!
They look absolutely menacing, terrifying. I would not like to mess with them, that's for sure. Apparently they like dog poop.
