Moths in the kitchen!


Guess who loves moths? Me! This moth (#1) is on the inside of my kitchen door.


Compare to moth (#2) found in bathroom last week. Note how each one holds/folds its wings when ‘at rest’!


This is a darker picture of Moth #1. #1 and #2 both have fuzzy wing edges but different fuzz pattern. Also notice the difference in their heads. I wonder if that means they eat different things.


Enlargement. Sorry about focus.


Check reflection for details of thorax, abdomen and legs! Do you know what kind of moth this is? I will try to look it up.

Update: It is not a pantry moth or a clothes moth or a Forage Looper.

Another update: Maybe it is a Forage Looper! Just faded because it’s winter!

The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.
