Welcome

My Blog's aim is to promote and encourage others to participate in the wonderful hobby that is Moth-trapping.
So why do we do it? well for some people it is to get an insight into the world of Moths, for others it is to build a list of species much like 'Twitching' in the Bird world.
The reason I do it....you never know what you might find when you open up that trap!
I hope to show what different species inhabit our Country by getting people aware of what is out there.
On this Blog you will find up-to-date records and pictures.
I run a trap regularly in my garden in Hertfordshire and enjoy doing field trips to various localities within Hertfordshire and Essex

Please also check out the links in the sidebar to the right for other people's Blogs and informative Websites.

Thanks for looking & happy Mothing!

The Emperor Strike Back...second year running.

One of two Emperor Moths attracted to the EMP lure yesterday afternoon (20/04/18) in my back garden here in Stevenage, North Herts

The lure was put out at 4pm

At 4:35pm the first Male Emperor Moth arrived to lure in my garden in Stevenage and then another followed at 5:15pm.

It still works despite being in my rucksack since last May and totally forgetting to put it in the freezer after using it.
